    High profile executive to lead MLSE in Tim Leiweke. High profile general manager to lead the franchise in Masai Ujiri. High profile coach in Dwa---. Oop.

    In all seriousness, I agree, it was weird seeing two such high profile people at the podium this morning. The feeling is DEFINITELY changing, and for the better.

    I think this is right. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't around past Friday.....

    Although, I remember when BC was hired and everyone said the same thing about Sam Mitchell.

    Had Mitchell not just won the COY award, I think there's a good chance that BC would've brought in his own coach right away (that's what the rumor was at the time of BC's hiring, from what I recall). It's hard to fire the reigning COY! Lucky for MU, he doesn't have that problem, just the financial burden (which isn't really that substantial, should he choose to go that route).

    I think he's a lame-duck coach who has a year to prove himself, especially on the defensive end to re-establish his reputation as a defensive guru.

    If DC works out, MU is a genius for sticking with him. If the team doesn't improve next year, MU has a scapegoat. Win-win for MU.

    There is no doubt that this team will get into the playoff's next year, even with our current shitty bench.

    The decisive factor for Casey is how far we climb up the latter, and that will reflect whether or not Casey Stays.

    If he can get into the 5th or 6th seed behind Miami, Indiana, Chicago & Boston, then I think he'll be able to keep his job.

    Add Alex English to the prospective assistant coach list?

    The man knows offense.... and Ujiri should know him.

    Don't forget that Masai and Doc Rivers are very close...i think Casey will finish his contract and when things in Boston get ugly, Doc would be the first choice of Masai

    Masai Ujiri Quote:

    On the importance of youth: “This is a good place for basketball here and we have to build on it. We really have to build on it. One of my philosophies is to develop young talent. Maybe the back of our roster has to be young guys that grow, that we continue to develop and get better and the opportunity will come.”

    http://sports.nationalpost.com/2013/...l-name-change/

    Casey better change his veterans needed to win tune me thinks. You aren't developing youth with Alan Anderson eating the minutes of Ross. Or Ed Davis barely getting a sniff for approximately 100 of his 120 games.

    If Alvin Gentry strikes out on head coaching gigs, I wonder if he would take an assistant role. Dude knows offense.

    Default Doc to leave Celtics?

    Although Celtics team president Danny Ainge has stated that Doc Rivers will return to coach Boston next season, Rivers believes it "may be time for a change," according to a source close to the situation.

    "Doc loves coaching," the source told ESPN. "He loves coaching in Boston. But he feels it may be time for a change."
    If Rivers were to walk away from the three years and $21 million remaining on his contract with the Celtics, it is not clear whether he would seek another coaching job next season or sit out and possibly return to broadcasting.

    Rivers is not interested in going through a rebuild with Boston. If both Masai and TL are saying the Raptors are not built to compete for a championship, I'm not sure Doc would consider Toronto at this time.

    But if I could choose between Doc Rivers and Dwane Casey, I am not sure there is any doubt who to go with.

    Money talks Matt. Lenny Wilkins came to the Raptors at a time where there was no telling when they would compete something significant.

    Doc makes $7M right now. I'm thinking the Raptors would probably have to pay him Phil Jackson money.

    Money does talk but not everyone listens to it or lets it be the deciding factor.

    Do you think Phil Jackson is coming to Toronto for Phil Jackson money? Is Jerry Sloan coming to Toronto for Phil Jackson money?

    *btw my assumption is Phil Jackson money is $10M - that is what I remember him making his last year in LA*

    Have you talked with Doc?

    I personally don't know why he's leaving Boston. Do you? No guarantee whatever he attributes it to is factual. He's a class act and he won't take shots as he's leaving out the door.

    Not lately. We lost touch after the Boston win. Success just changes some people

    As for why he is leaving, everything I've read through HoopsHype.com (rumours and sources all need grains of salt, I know) have said he does not wish to go through a rebuild. Ainge is contemplating blowing it all up and Doc is not down for another period like the start of his Celtic career. Honestly, I can't blame him at this stage of his career.
