 NEW ORLEANS (AP) -New Orleans coach Byron Scott, who led the Hornets to their first playoff appearance in four years this season, has been chosen as the NBA coach of the year, The Associated Press has learned.
A person with knowledge of the award spoke with the AP on condition of anonymity because the league had not yet announced it.
New Orleans sent a media advisory Monday afternoon, saying it planned a ``major announcement'' at 10 a.m. Tuesday following the Hornets' gameday shootaround.
Scott is expected to receive the award Tuesday before the Hornets host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series.
