    Add Alex English to the prospective assistant coach list?

    The man knows offense.... and Ujiri should know him.
    Oof that'd be a fantastic hire

    I don't think Raptors are interested in Lue anymore It was BC who was interested.

    In a surprising move, the Bulls will not renew the contract of lead assistant coach Ron Adams.

    Adams, in his second stint with the Bulls, came to Chicago following a successful run as Scott Brooks’ lead assistant in Oklahoma City. A longtime friend of Tom Thibodeau's, Adams left the Thunder to be closer to his family, who remained in the Chicago area for school reasons following Adams’ first stint with the Bulls under Scott Skiles.

    According to sources, general manager Gar Forman made the decision, not Thibodeau. Forman informed Adams on Friday.

    Adams could land back with the Thunder, who have an opening after Maurice Cheeks left to take the head coaching job with the Detroit Pistons. Adams, known for his strong work at developing players, also drew interest earlier this offseason from other unknown teams.

    Adams had been working on one-year deals since leaving the Thunder.

    Hughes was given a lot of credit for player development in Toronto.

    Adams is a highly regarded player development coach.. Just saying.

    Default Raptors get their offensive assistant coach

    Ryan Wolstat:
    "As @HPbasketball mentioned, Nick Nurse will be joining Raptors as assistant coach. He will be in charge of offence. Highly regarded"




    Looks like a solid move

    Any guy that can get a bunch of kids just looking to get noticed to actually play as a cohesive offensive unit must be doing something right. I liked this rumour since it surfaced a while ago, happy to see it come to fruition.

    Great to hear. Casey has some redeeming qualities as a coach, but hes clueless on the offensive end. I dont know much about this guy .. but from what Ive read, he sounds like a good hire. Hopefully he can help out Casey ala Thibideau with Doc and we can (finally) have an offensive scheme that is at least half decent. Casey can focus on defense and player management (where hopefully he lets Ross and JV play this year!)

    Absolutely. Not to mention the revolving door of players he had.

    The more i read about this hire the more i like it.

    Ryan Wolstat: Only fates of Raptors assistants Micah Nori and John Townsend remain up in air. Rest gone. Team still looking to add an ex-player Twitter @WolstatSun

    Ryan Wolstat: Yes, there's a chance Popeye Jones could be that guy, but haven't heard anything official. In other news, his son just slipped in NHL draft Twitter @WolstatSun
    I like Popeye Jones.

    since they made the announcement, ive tried to watch some viper games on youtube
    honestly there isnt anything that really stands out in their plays.
    if theres anything to comment on is that they do run fastbreaks alot more than the raptors did.
    and they do shoot with some kind of efficiency.
    maybe nurse's specialty is based more on perfecting the basics rather than bringing something like a unique offensive style.

    Honestly, if there's an improvement in our out-of-bound plays, I'll be happy.

    That leaves just one assistant coach from last year, no?
