    Perhaps this is a precursor to the Raps trading Bargnani to the Lakers for Gasol
    Or Odom. Stick Odom at the 3. Doesn't help long term though but it certainly adds a veteran with championship experience who can still contribute.

    Italian Coach Ettore Messina has agreed to work for the L.A. Lakers on Coach Mike Brown's staff.

    According to Zeno Pisani of Rivista Ufficiale NBA, Italy, a deal was agreed to on Friday. Pisani notes Messina will serve as "consultant to the head coach" in a full-time position.

    Messina is one of the most well-respected coaches internationally. He's long-wanted to break into the NBA, ideally as a head coach. He was in discussions with the Toronto Raptors before they went with Jay Triano.

    Although the Raptors job has opened back up, it appears Ettore's first position in the NBA will be with the Lakers.

    Too bad Colangelo takes so darn long to make a move on his coaches. Jay shouldn't have made it to this last season. When Bosh left that was the perfect time to say goodbye.
    Well thats what happens when you got a soft GM and HC.

    I think the perfect coach at this stage would have been Paul Silas. Too bad Colangelo takes so darn long to make a move on his coaches. Jay shouldn't have made it to this last season. When Bosh left that was the perfect time to say goodbye.

    BC I think is more likely to go after Adelman than Frank. Frank has always been tough with his players (which I prefer). Houston's defense last year was 22nd. Adelman has never been known to prefer defense over offense. I prefer Frank.
    Gotta look a bit farther than that (full seasons only, def. rating and league rank):

    Frank
    04-05: 103.1 (7th)
    05-06: 102.4 (4th)
    06-07: 106.6 (15th)
    07-08: 109.4 (21st)
    08-09: 111.0 (24th)

    Adelman

    Sacremento
    99-00: 102.1 (10th)
    00-01: 99.6 (7th)
    01-02: 101.1 (6th)
    02-03: 99.1 (2nd)
    03-04: 104.9 (21st)
    04-05: 108.2 (23rd)
    05-06: 105.0 (12th)

    Houston
    07-08: 101.6 (2nd)
    08-09: 104.0 (4th)
    09-10: 108.0 (17th)
    10-11: 109.0 (19th)

    I'd imagine the players (or lack thereof) are as much to blame as anything.

    Brian Shaw, Mark Jackson, or Mike Woodsen are better than Frank IMO.
    How can you say Brian Shaw and Mark Jackson are better than Frank when neither of them has HC experience? Jackson hasn't even coached...

    a rundown on some candidates (Frank Woodson Adelman)

    The Raptors own P.J. Carlesimo has head coaching experience, but he has already been eliminated from the search by Colangelo.

    Casey never got a shot after Minnesota. He was fired when they were .500 and the team has never sniffed mediocrity since.
    And I forgot he had head-coached. I would be happy with Casey as well.

    Franks was a media darling when he showed up w/ the Nets. He was young, bright and had the attention of his team. He was brought in as the interim head coach and the players unanimously wanted him as a FT head coach. Some transactions occured that didn't endear the Nets brass to Kidd and he tuned out. As far as I can find, it wasn't LF that was tuned out. When that team started 0-16 prior to his removal as HC, he had the talent level of an 0-16 team. His experience working with the Celts should prove to be invaluable and the changes he made to the defense weren't the cause of their demise, the lack of a healthy, quality centre, Rondo's disappearance and the aging of their key players was.

    I hadn't even thought about Mo Cheeks....kinda like that idea. A lot.

    My only issue with Frank is he'll get he team going and he'll shore up the D but the team will eventually tune him out and the Raps will pay him to sit at home (a raptors tradition). I think someone already mentioned the Scott Skiles effect.

    Byron Scott led Cavs to a 26 losing streak, does that mean he is not a good coach?! He just didn't have enough talent in that roster. So just because Nets sucked two years ago it doesn't mean Frank Lawrence is not a decent coach.
    Great point about Byron Scott. I always point to Doc Rivers. He was "crap" before getting KG and Ray Allen.

    And his name is Lawrence Frank .. not Frank Lawrence.





    I'm not all that interested in Dwane Casey. I think there are far better candidates available that should be hired over him.
