I believe the cap affects player salaries, not coaching salaries.
Given the number of young players on the team, wouldn't the team be well advised to:
1. Hire a great big man coach for JV (and others), for say $1M/yr?
2. Hire a full time shooting coach, again for up to $1M/yr?
3. Hire 4 superstar personal trainers to work with Alex McKechnie and the team (say another $1M/yr)?
4. Hire a psychologist, a couple of life coaches, a full time nutritionist, maybe an investment advisor (say another $1M/yr)?
... and toss in $1M for miscellaneous.
Surely $5M thrown at the right people to build the off-court support team could provide a lot of that counseling and attitude adjustments that we were hoping Stevie Nash would bring? And imagine if the Raptors were known around the league as being leaders in player development and player support (though I have no idea what other people spend that we don't)?
We're saving money on younger players. Why not spend that money on a team to help support and develop them?
Your thoughts? And what would you say the money should be spent on?
