When the 2015-16 NBA season begins later this month, five teams will start the season with a new head coach: Chicago (Fred Hoiberg), Denver (Michael Malone), New Orleans (Alvin Gentry), Oklahoma City (Billy Donovan) and Orlando (Scott Skiles).

Making coaching changes in the NBA is pretty commonplace. There is only one franchise that seems happy enough to stay with one coach over the past 16 years: The San Antonio Spurs are the only team to have just one head coach (Gregg Popovich) since 2000. All total, there have been 205 different head coaches in the NBA since the 1999-2000 season, or about an average of just under seven per team.

Here’s a breakdown of the number of head coaches for each of the NBA teams since 1999-2000.

10: Golden State

9: Brooklyn, Chicago, Memphis, New York Knicks, Philadelphia, Sacramento
