He’s having a terrible season and is looking more and more lost by the game. Do you think he’ll recover? I’ve been sticking up for him for a while but the in-game decision making along with the static, motionless offense has now become indefensible. Worst of all, the team isn’t putting in the defensive effort any more, and that’s the one are where he deserved commendation (especially his first year).
There’s no doubt he’s a lame-duck coach (hence the contract situation) but I honestly thought that Masai Ujiri was going to give him a real shot at earning the job permanently, but based on results so far I simply don’t see Ujiri being impressed. If he keeps Casey on while the results continue to go south, it might appear that he’s endorsing tanking.
