Lakers assistant Quin Snyder may be favorite for Charlotte Bobcats job

Now that former Utah Jazz coach has taken his name out of the running for the Charlotte Bobcats head-coaching position, according to SI.com's Sam Amick, only two candidates remain: Pacers assistant Brian Shaw and Lakers assistant Quin Snyder.

But Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register writes that Shaw is thought to prefer the Orlando Magic opening, which would leave the Bobcats job to Snyder.

Ding writes:

Snyder, 45, doesn’t have the NBA experience of Shaw, who was passed over as Phil Jackson’s replacement when Brown was hired as Lakers head coach. But Snyder has an outstanding grasp of the NBA pick-and-roll game and connected very well with Lakers star Kobe Bryant in just one year together.

Snyder, a former Missouri head coach who rebuilt his career in the D-League after NCAA violations in Columbia, was in Charlotte for a second interview on Wednesday, this time with owner Michael Jordan. Snyder's Duke pedigree doesn't seem to be an issue with North Carolina alum Jordan.

Amick tweets the following, however:
