high IQ player coaches would be guys like guys like Nash, Grant Hill, Shane Battier etc when they retire
Just saw this from a few days ago.
"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.
