    Tyler Ennis and Kyle Wiltjer are playing together in Turkey....and playing very well. While Wiltjer will never be a huge defensive force or great rebounder, he is a solid offensive player. In 5 games this year he is shooting over 50% from the field, over 47% from 3 (16.2 ppg), adding in a respectable 7.4 rpg and 3 assists. In 21 games last year he shot over 40% from 3.

    Is this a guy that should get another crack at the NBA due to his floor spacing abilty? Do we need to take anohter shot at the Stanley Johnson's and Hollis Jefferson's or take an established Euro League guy with a specific skill set?
    You had me at "established Euro League guy with a specific skill set."

    Hot take: this rona virus shit fucking sucks
    That's not a hot take. It is a level-headed and rational summation of the available facts.

    Kerr was the GM of the Suns and he went nowhere (I remember him bringing in a washed up Shaq and totally killed their chances of winning).

    Nash would be a better coach than GM. He was one of the best floor generals in the game. And probably has a lot of respect from guys like KD and Kyrie. Heck he was basically an assistant coach on GSW while KD was there (his official role was a special advisor or something).

    Ultimately coach's don't make that much of a difference. He's going to let his stars play.. and I think he'll be good in the locker room. Guys like LeVert/Harris/etc will love him.
    True. Team Canada GM role is basically as a recruiter, which is a much different skill set. On paper, it would seem that Nash would probably be better off in a role where he's closer to game action making decisions in the heat of the battle. But everybody said the exact same things about Jason Kidd. Kerr is the exception, not the rule, btw.

    This could be an inspired hire or it could be an un-mitigated disaster. Respect to the Nets for the ballsy move.

    That came right out of left field. It's either going to work spectacularly well, or it's going to be an epic crash & burn. Nash did a terrible job with Canada Basketball, as a GM.

    I agree, I don't think he was ever too focused on the job. Imagine hiring ujiri to recruit for us with nurse as the coach. The players would probably finally show up.

    Steve Nash has just signed a 4 year deal to coach the Nets … Somehow I think he is going to hire Jay Triano to be his assistant ..

    The CEBL 2020 season is done almost two weeks ago, so we took some time to do analysis of best players during the season.
    Check out who are the best Five and bench, using the advanced statistical parameters at following link:

    The link take me to a Croatian article. Is there one for the CEBL?

    It's been said before but Canada's PG position is quite amazing for years to come ..
    Jamal Murray put on quite the show today ..

    With Murray and SGA it is easy to play them both together as they would provide great size and play-making in the back court.
