    I thought they'd bring him back as a sacrificial lamb for next year's crapfest. I'm surprised by this. Now, the new guy is going to have wear the stink of next season.

    Well, good luck to Jay. I don't think he was a bad coach or a bad guy but he was certainly out of his depth that first year and the rosters handed to him the last 2 did him no favours. It's hard to blame Triano for what has happened the last 3 years but someone needed to take the fall for this 22-win team. Next up: Andrea Bargnani meets the Sword of Damacles.

    Based on Colangelo's comments, I don't see how he can now hire a first-time head coach. I can't imagine he'd do this unless he had a target and had some indication that guy would come to Toronto. I just can't figure out what quality, veteran coach in his right mind would want to coach the 2011-12 Raptors.

    You're right. There's not much point in firing a first-time (NBA) head coach and replacing him with another one. That said, I think if anyone is to lure a quality coach to Toronto, it would be BC.

    I can see Colangelo pulling some weak ass shit like bringing in the dude that just got fired in GS, Keith Smart.

    I'm glad that he's no longer the coach. I feel we need someone who will hold the players accountable on defense and..well EVERYTHING else lol

    glad to see him still with the organization though, he's definitely a Toronto Raptor.

    In a messed up world where some fool allowed me to GM their team I would have replaced a coach like Triano for only two reasons:

    1/ To save myself
    2/ Because I have a deal in player personnel that will woo a top tier coach.

    I'm minorly surprised. The Raps desperately need better scouting and Jay would be a major asset there, but if BCo did this next year after a young nucleus was built via drafts and trades (I'm assuming it can be done over two drafts and off-seasons) the team would look a lot more appealing to potential top flight coaches.

    Why not Mike Dunleavy? Besides the Clippers, (which he actually led to within a game of the Western Finals) and Milwauke (where they literally had less talent than an NBDL team) he has shown to be VERY competent. He's a VERY successful Head Coach.
    And having played in the league for a few years himself, he has always been considered a players Coach.
    We probably won't even look at him, but I'm not sure why someone would be against hiring him.

    I know the Lakers were looking to bring him back before settling on Brown (He Coached them to the Finals previously).

    Couple of points:
    1. Anybody see Jay being a replacement for Gheradini?

    2. Just for the fun of it, would love to hire Charles Oakley just to see what the Oak man would do to Bargnani.

    Default JVG and that guy who only had success when Jason Kidd was on his team

    “Most of the targets will be candidates that have a great deal of experience, somebody that has achieved success in that forum before,” Colangelo said.

    “Tenure, experience, rate of success, those will all be factored in. Someone who has a defensive-minded perspective, somebody who has had success putting solid defensive units out there, limiting points while still having flow to the offence.

    “Someone who has a free-flowing offence, but can really drill down on the defensive side of the ball which is something we need to improve on.”
    Source: Toronto Sun

    If Colangelo wants a defensive-minded coach, my guess is Lawrence Frank, then Jeff Van Gundy. Sounds like he wants immediate results.
    Source: Twitter/ @Bruce Arthur

    Give JVG whatever he wants. Give him e2thed's first born, I don't care. Get it done.

    What a day in hoops news, Triano Gone, Shaq gone, Rubio in.

    Oh, and I like this move, good to see BC has hit the ground running.

    Default Messina

    Mark my words, Messina will be our next coach. Triano's contract wasn't set to expire until June 15, so it seems a tad premature to me that this decision has been made today. Connect that with the fact that Messina has just been presented an offer to be Mike Brown's assistant in LA. I think Colangelo is swooping in before that becomes final.

    That's my theory, and in my opinion it wouldn't be a bad thing.
