    Does anyone know whats happening with doug christie? He could make a good former player coach and has the talents we want from our wingmen. I actually have no idea what the qualifications for players are. Do they nees to have a degree or just have played in the league ao they can relate to the current crop of players?

    What is the actual value od having a former player as an assistant?
    His wife may disqualify him I am afraid.

    Just saw this from a few days ago.

    http://www.torontosun.com/2013/07/25...-raptors-big-v

    "The team announced further changes to Dwane Casey’s staff on Thursday.

    Bill Bayno has officially left the Minnesota Timberwolves and will focus on Toronto’s defence, which slipped significantly last season, a year after the team surprisingly emerged as a defensive force during Casey’s initial campaign....Casey said there will be a major focus on player development this season.

    “Bill Bayno is one of the best in the league as far as player development (is concerned),” Casey said in a conference call.

    “I’ve known Bill for a long time. He did an excellent job of working with guys, developing players.

    “Jesse (Mermuys, hired away from Houston) did a good job (during his four years in) Denver, and working with James Harden in Houston, he has a good relationship with players.”

    Mermuys was an assistant coach/director of player development with the Rockets."

    yeah ive heard nothing but good things about Bayno. The fact a guy like Aldridge who isn't exactly the most outspoken player in the league made such a big deal about him being let go is something to take note of.

    Something tells me one of Bayno or Nurse will be the HC next season.
