Dont know is it so damn hard to find it or I jus s**k at jusing Google, but I really dont find any new information about NBA coach's salaries. Only this so called list:

TOP NBA COACH SALARIES (Source: New York Daily News on July 25, 2005): Yearly Average Salaries based on current overall contract:
(1) Rick Adelman, Kings, $6.9M
(2) Jerry Sloan, Jazz, $5.5M
(3) Larry Brown, Pistons, $5M
(4) Doc Rivers, Celtics, $5M
(5) Jeff Van Gundy, Rockets, $5M

"Jackson's latest deal is for three years. Terms were not announced, but it's believed he'll be earning between $7 million and $10 million per year, making him the highest-paid NBA coach ever -- a fact confirmed by Kupchak." June 16, 2005

... and Avery Johnson salary is about 2,5 million per year. That all I know right now.

I hope the Celtics and Hornets feel that they're getting their moneys worth

Hornets have been decimated with injuries, but I definitely agree on the Celtics. That's gotta hurt.
