Patrick Ewing is reportedly on the Magic’s list of coaching candidates. But as that search gets underway in the wake of Scott Skiles’ resignation, Ewing is making more headway elsewhere.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com:

Ewing is on track to become an NBA head coach. He had a great playing career, and he’s putting in work as an assistant. I think he’ll break through eventually.

I don’t know whether it will be in Memphis, but it appears he at least has a chance.
