    Time for Raptors to pull a Weltman where by you double the "normal" salary of position.

    Weltman was making about $500K with Bucks and with Raps he is getting $1M.... at least that is what I recall from last year.

    Yeah, contract or not, players, managers and exec generally become sour when you force them to pass up a promotion.

    I don't really see why he would. He's got roughly the same position here, and he could be the next head coach of TOR if Casey screws up

    Can we trade a coach for a draft pick and/or player?

    When I spoke to Nick Nurse, he gave me a blunt, "I don't know" and alluded that he might go with Kerr to NY. Now that Kerr is in Golden State, one can speculate even more.

    That was weeks ago when we talked so maybe things have changed. He might stay, he might not.

    Considering how hard it is to break into coaching at the NBA level, and how disposable coaches are, all coaches probably see themselves as mercenaries willing to take whatever opportunity is best for them.

    Unless you're a Hall of Fame coach, most Execs, fans (and some players) have zero-loyalty to coaches. We shouldn't be surprised if coaches have zero-loyalty to an organization.

    Not only do the Warriors have an intriguing roster, but Nurse would likely have more influence behind the scenes with a 1st year head coach at the helm, than here with Casey, who has been coaching for 20-plus years.

    If we lose Nurse then the Casey re-hire will look shitty in hindsight. I have to think Masai is grooming Nurse as the coach of the future. The only thing he didn't have on his resume was NBA Assistant. He's had championship level success everywhere he has coached. He completely fixed Casey's retarded offense. Luckily MLSE is willing to spend now, because losing Nurse over $1M a year extra pay would be criminally stupid.

    Was Nurse the guy recommending all those DD/Lowry ISOs, ignoring JV in the post and telling Ross to go sit in the corner? If yes, then, what's so great about this guy? If no, then what's his role, if Casey doesn't listen to him?

    It's not like Nurse gets to call the offense all game while Casey sits back sipping Pina Colada's. Nurse designed the much improved offensive sets this year, and this is done in practice. It's the first year of Casey's tenure where we consistently used screens, and several of them per possession. When we switch to iso ball it's probably Casey asking DD/Lowry to take over the game. Nurse also wouldn't get to decide the lineups all game, and Casey insisted on using some seriously offensively challenged lineups for long stretches of time (e.g. when Hayes is in instead of JV you can't run the same plays). Ross sits in the corner because he is an amazing catch and shoot 3 point shooter, but not very good at doing it off the roll or dribble. I don't really have a problem with that. When we run several screens Ross is eventually left open in the corner and he can hit that shot at a very high rate.

    The sets improved throughout the year, because they worked on it and luckily had the pieces.

    During pressers Casey would say their play calling is simple with several options, but as the season worn on the Raptors ran a lot of 'random' basketball which includes isos and p&r (via vasquez, lowry, derozan) during late shot clock situations. It didn't work well in the playoffs when they needed buckets!

    Continuity is key and their chemistry on offence will get better for next season.

    I am someone on the forum who reads a lot here, but only contributes when I have something to say.

    I spoke to Nurse and he kindly answered my questions. He's a cool dude.

    Random fact: he has an accounting degree.

    We get it, you like Nick Nurse. Everything good was because of Nick Nurse, everything bad was because of Dwane Casey.

    Is Nick Nurse your dad or something?

    Nick Nurse is a really good coach. He won 3 championships within the D-league and he's also helped our offense tremendously.

    I really don't want to see him go. The Raptors are a good place to be in right now, and hes already seen the result of their collaboration. Hopefully it continues onwards.

    Random question.

    When they win champianships in the d league do they celebrate and run parades through the city. Or do they just smile and take the trophy knowing they all suck and won the equivalent of a consolation trophy for being losers who couldn't make the nba

    Might be like the celebration by the NIT or whatever college tournament, played by the schools not good enough to be in March Madness.

    Considering they play in gigantic metropolises like Rio Grande, Erie and Santa Cruz, I'd assume parades are in order.
