It was first reported Sunday night by ESPN that Alabama will hire former NBA coach of the year Avery Johnson to replace Anthony Grant.
quote:

The 50-year-old Johnson, an ESPN analyst, is from New Orleans and played in the NBA. He coached the Dallas Mavericks from 2005 to 2008 and the Brooklyn Nets from 2010 to 2012.

Johnson, who played 16 years in the league and was a point guard on the 1999 champion San Antonio Spurs, achieved his greatest coaching success with the Mavericks. Dallas won 60 games twice, and Johnson was the NBA coach of the year in 2006 after guiding the Mavs to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the Miami Heat in six games.
His son, Avery Johnson Jr., plays in the SEC as a freshman point guard at Texas A&M.

"I wonder if AJ Jr will transfer"

Wouldn't he need to sit out a year if transferring intra-conference? If so, no way he transfers.

there is only 2 spots left and 1 is for Dazon Ingram...so I doubt he transfers this year.
