Could Avery be out of Dallas as well and could D'Antoni be heading to Dallas?

Looks like The suns will be cleaning house now that the Shaq trade is a bust.

It's also possible that D'Antoni would head to Toronto thanks to the Colangelo ties. Going to the East would also give him an easier path to the Finals

“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

The problem is, who would be a good coach to take his place?

And yes, definitely expect to see him end up in Toronto this week.

And D'Antoni goes to...the Knicks?

    Mike D'Antoni has accepted an offer to coach the New York Knicks, according to media reports.

    The former Phoenix Suns coach, who was also sought by the Chicago Bulls, has accepted a four-year, $24 million deal to take over the Knicks, according to reports by Sports Illustrated and The Boston Globe, both citing a league source.

This doesn't make sense to me. If he goes to the Bulls, D'Antoni's easily got himself a playoff-caliber team for next year. But going to the Knicks means he's got himself a rebuilding project for at least the next two years.

He's a great coach and he could do good things in New York, assuming the usual collection of egos and misfits (Marbury, Randolph, et. al.) don't screw it all up.

I really wanted to start another Knicks thread, but it might be redundant at this point.

D'Antoni has come to New York! To bad only about 3 or 4 of the current players fit his style of play. At least the Knicks team is already great at not playing any defense. I would have actually liked to have had Mark Jackson as the coach. I think that he would have been better at knocking some of those knuckleheads around. I also think Jackson would have come in under less pressure and he has already proven he is capable of handling the NY media. If nothing else D'Antoni has a nice mustache.
