    Default ESPN: Mo Cheeks is being considred for Raptors head coach.

    And then there were 3...

    "Lawrence Frank and Dwane Casey are on the Toronto Raptors' list of coaching candidates, but sources say there is a strong third candidate: Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Maurice Cheeks.

    The Raptors are not expected to make a decision on their coach until GM Bryan Colangelo returns from a scouting trip in Europe. They are also expected to wait until they can interview Mavericks assistant coach Casey, after the NBA Finals.

    Cheeks, 54, has a career record of 284-286 as a head coach over six-plus seasons, splitting time between the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers. He last coached the Sixers in 2008 before joining the Thunder under coach Scottie Brooks. "

    I still think that Casey is still the favorite but, Cheeks goes with the whole experience and pedigree that BryCo was talking about when he fired JT. 284-286 is not bad actually with the teams his had. His used to working with young teams to and taking them to the playoffs.

    Default Mo Cheeks?

    Looks like he is in the mix. ESPN is reporting the Raptors have interest, I would not mind Cheeks. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/s...e=NBAHeadlines

    Cheeks seems too laid back. We need a Casey type especially for Mr. Bargs. I remember that Cheeks had problems controlling AI. Lol. Who didn't?
