    Default New Assistant Coach rumours

    Looks like we lost out on a new architect of the defense.

    The Toronto Raptors recently pursued Boston Celtics coach Darren Erman to become defensive coordinator under Dwane Casey, sources said, but the chance to become associate head coach with Gentry and work with superstar Anthony Davis apparently swayed him.
    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources...164205332.html

    I'd been thinking that was part of the deal for keeping Casey on: that he had to hire a top notch assistant to run the defense, and that his job would be to be head coach and manage egos more, and let his team more do of the real work.

    If this is the case (and I'm pretty sure it is), it just makes you wonder why they didn't just cut ties with the guy.

    So we want to make Casey into a hockey coach? He sucks at lineups so I still think that's too much responsibility for Casey. You have brought on a flashback of my Casey is still here depression.

    Erman is considered a defensive genius, too bad.

    then again Casey was considered a defensive genius.

    In the future, everyone in the NBA will be a genius for 15 minutes.

    Why not hire Mike Malone? highly regarded young coach, CANADIAN. Maybe groom him as the next Raps coach.

    Canadian? He was born in NYC and son of ex Raptors coach Brendan Malone.

    I'm starting to think the main reason we kept Casey is because Masasi knows of a better coach available next summer, and Casey is the perfect lame duck coach in the mean time. He seems like the kind of guy that will be a company man to the last day, won't rock the boat or start a mutiny like Thibodeau, he'll just keep motivating players and should at least keep chemistry between personnel in order until the day he's out the door.

    Ujiris realistic, no dreams of a title next year either. If there's no better choice yet, keep the guy with 1 more year left, sort out the JV/JJ issues with him first, and have a new coach in time for Bruno/Knicks pick 2016-17

    disappointing i guess.

    But it doesn't make a difference. Casey, who would never have actually listened to this assistant, will run this team yet further into the mud this season, then he'll be gone and we'll have a new head coach who will bring his own assistants anyways, and we'll start the process that should have started 2 years ago. Or, we'll keep Casey, and be a terrible team forever. Either way, this guy wouldn't have had any impact here.

    Why would good assistant coaches want to come here when they seen the mess that is going down in Toronto:

    1)Your CEO steps down in a mysterious ways a year after getting hired.
    2)Your team underachieved in the playoffs and are looking to take a step back next season.
    3)The coach is a stubborn guy that failed to show any creativity during the playoffs to win games and may not have heed the advice given to him by his assistant coaches.
    4) The GM fires the assistant coaches even though normally the coach gets canned (along with the assistants) and the new coach gets to pick his assistants, instead of the GM. It is also unclear as of yet what direction Masai will be going.
    5) You got Thibs out there and the Raptors do not attempt to go after him even though he is a winning coach and is considered a top 5 in the NBA.

    Seems to me assistant coaches are wary of Toronto for a good reason, they are going where they think they can win and look good.
