    Default Should we discuss Jerry Sloan in light of this weeks (in)action?

    Seems like TL has been shopping for new GM candidates:

    "Leiweke is not conducting the search for a possible replacement on his own; multiple NBA sources say MLSE has hired a head-hunting firm to whittle down a list of possible replacements," Smith wrote.

    Interesting.

    Also, looks like Jerry Sloan turned down the Bucks, but is interested in a return to coaching:
    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/92...ucks-job-agent

    So, if DC is gone due to BC's departure, new GM-guy has to make that call, right? Dunno if its so cut and dry. Re already tried Lenny Wilkens...ugh.... I don't know if I can work through another old-school coach trying to remake-it in the "new NBA".

    I personally would be in favour of keeping Casey. I think he's done a good enough job given the talent and the scrambled expectations of the head-office for the players he's been dealt.

    If not Peter Jackson then Sloan, good work Leiweke. It looks like Peter Jackson's tenure as the future coach or GM of the Raptors are slim, there's a chance he might just sign with the Pistons as a scout or some other team like the Bobcats lol as a coach. So, if not Jackson, we can still go after Jerry Sloan.

    If it isn't a CLEAR step up in terms of who is coaching, I am not for a sideways move. Jerry Sloan is a clear step up.

    It makes sense though. With Peter Jackson as our next GM.. we can package Bargnani with DeRozan for a legit starting PF + a backup point guard and a 2nd round pick. Use the 2nd round pick to grab a big, perhaps undersized but burly C. And then amnesty Kleiza and sign a sharpshooting SG with the MLE. We'll have the following roster:

    C: Jonas Valanciunas, Aaron Gray, Gimli
    PF: Gandalf, Amir Johnson
    SF: Rudy Gay, Landry Fields
    SG: Legolas, Terrence Ross
    PG: Kyle Lowry, Frodo

    We won't win the NBA Championships but we do have the Ring to rule them all..
    your pal,

    No, because Jerry Sloan is not coaching the Toronto Raptors next season. End of story.

    Sorry, just being realistic.

    I doubt he comes to Toronto as well but why if he was president and coach? I was thinking let stephanski be gm and negotiate trades and moneys etc while Sloan gets complete roster make up, coaching control and final say in anything Stephanski does. I never heard of a situation like this and wondered if it was possible?

    Just being totally unrealistic and dreaming here, but...

    General Manager: Phil Jackson
    Head Coach: Jerry Sloan.

    Ah.

    If we could nab Pete Jackson and Jimmy Sloan that would be balls to the wall awesome, but it's really unrealistic, I would like Micheal Ujiri too, I like Steve van Gundy as a coaching candidate. But the pesimist in me keeps saying thwt we will stick with Byron Callangelo and D-Wade Casey
