Adrian Wojnarowski, of Yahoo! Sports, is reporting that the Clippers are discussing pursuing Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl - the 2012-13 NBA Coach of the Year:

Denver coach George Karl, voted the NBA's Coach of the Year, has been discussed as a possible candidate within the Clippers' front office, sources said.

Karl has one year left on his contract, and Denver holds an option that would trigger three more years. In the past, Karl has always been uneasy about entering the final year of deals and has been eager to discuss a possible extension with the Nuggets, sources said. -Full story here

The Clippers are looking at Jeff Van Gundy, were rumored to be pursuing Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, and now talks of Karl pop up. Could the Nuggets possibly lose both the Coach of the Year and the Executive of the Year in the same off-season? What's going on in Denver?

Karl has one season left on his contract and Denver would have to allow the Clippers to speak to Karl. We'll see if anything develops. Karl has been rumored to be looking for a contract extension.
