    Default ESPN: Raptors register interest in Mike Woodson, Dwayne Casey and Lawrence Frank.

    I'm told Raptors have also registered some interest in Woodson, as w/Dwane Casey and L-Frank, but DET link so strong w/Woody's history there
    I guess they're not limiting themselves to just the more venerable candidates.

    Woodson wouldn't be a bad choice at this stage in the game.

    I read somewhere else (aside from here) that Woodson is the front runner for the Pistons HC position.

    I had mentioned Woodson as a solid candidate a while back. He's tough on players and puts emphasis on defense. As Apollo mentioned he is a good option at this STAGE. Once the team is more competetive in a couploe of years then a better X's and O's coach can be sought after. A two year contract with a third year option is appropriate imho.

    In the end, it looks like it'll either be Adelman, Casey or Frank with Casey probably emerging because he's the cheapest of the 3.

    I found out where I did see it - the ESPN Insider section:

    UPDATE: ESPN.com's Marc Stein added early Monday morning that Toronto has interest in Mike Woodson, along with Frank and and Casey.

    Woodson is the favorite to be the next head coach of the Pistons.

    Adelman would be the best of the crop (JVG aside), but L Frank wouldn't be a bad choice either - crazy how the Raps offseason is always filled with so much action; I wish the regular seasons were this exciting for them lol

    I wanna see Adelman as our head coach, but then again I really don't care , I just want a hard-nosed coach that holds players accountable, and does not reward bad defense for playing time.

    Adelman would be awesome, especially considering he has GM aspirations and Bryan has already mentioned that he would not mind stepping up to the presidency and giving his role to another basketball mind. I realize Adelman does not have the GM experience that Bryan was wishing for, but his 23 years coaching experience and former player exp gives me trust in his abilities. He has been around the league for 30 years.

    I would not mind making him coach/GM, primarily interested in him as a coach, but with a promise that he would have some front office control over player acquisitions, with Bryan overseeing the business side of things.

    Didn't Adelman leave Houston because he didn't want to be part of a rebuilding situation?
    I would love JVG, sad to see him leave Mark Jackson and Breen on commentary, but him dealing with Toronto media on a day-to-day basis would be pretty funny.

    Casey would be an excellent choice. He still has something to prove in the HC ranks. The Warriors are taking a long look at him and Frank but haven't made up their minds yet. Hopefully BC can sign his guy before someone else does.

    I am biased but the Raptors job looks to be the better gig. The Raptors are set up to take a step forward and Woodson would have a lot of young athletic talent to work with. It wouldn't be a situation far from what he had in ATL... Well, with the exception that people show up to watch the games in Toronto. I think he might enjoy having a home court advantage.

    I think it had more to do with issues between the GM (Morey) and Adelman.

    The Portland Trail Blazers are looking for a general manager, and Rick Adelman is interested in the position.

    However, Adelman, who coached Portland to the NBA Finals in 1990 and 1992, told the Portland Tribune that he has no interest in returning to that particular job -- especially since the Blazers still employ Nate McMillan.
    Rick Adelman was fired by the Blazers in 1994. (AP Photo)

    “I’d love to talk to them,” said Adelman, fired in April after four seasons as head coach of the Houston Rockets. “I’d be interested in talking to them about any position.”

    “I have no interest in the head coaching job,” he says. “I need to make that clear. They have a really good coach. Nate has done a great job.”

    Adelman told the Tribune that he has not been contacted by the team but is interested in both returning to Portland and getting away from the rigors of coaching; he's 65 and has been a head coach for 19 seasons.

    “I’m looking to do something different, with not quite the stress the coaching aspect has,"

    Sorry guys doesn't look like Adelman is interested in coaching anymore.

    Casey kept a really shitty twolves team competitive, he's definitely a good coach.

    I initially was against Casey, but the more I sit back on it, the more I think he'd be the best candidate for the job. However, Colangelo will want someone with some sort of pedigree and who doesn't exactly shy away from running a good offense. I don't know if that's Casey.

    Can someone give me a break down of what we get from Frank, Woodson, and Casey? I don't know any of them and I wouldn't know what to expect!
