    Maybe. I don't know how good he is as a coach. I think he would certainly be a good consultant as a part time big man coach. Defense is tough to coach. I'd rather have somebody who is highly experienced at coaching it and has proven results.
    Was looking around on the net and from what I read people seemed pretty happy, if not surprised, with his work as Assistant to Paul Silas. The guy knows the game and I can guarentee you he'd have the players respect. I'm not suggesting he be named Lead Assistant, but an Assistant none the less. You can have quite a few on your staff, and he'd be great to have around Ed and Amir.

    Having guys like Alvin, JYD, and hopefully Oakley, come back and join the club post retirement, would reflect well on the Organization as a whole as well.

    Alex English on offense, and Oak on defense, thats a nice combo.
    If we get someone thats a well rounded coach like Adelman or Woodsen, we might have a chance at the 7th seat.

    Oakley out as Bobcats Assistant? Come back to us Oak!

    Back problem could force Oakley to leave Bobcats' bench

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Charlotte Bobcats assistant Charles Oakley isn't sure he'll be able to return to his job because of a painful back condition he says was caused during an assault last year in Las Vegas.

    Oakley has sued the Aria hotel-casino, claiming he was beaten by security guards in May 2010. Oakley said Saturday that two slipped disks from the incident led to a painful sciatic nerve condition that forced him to miss the Bobcats' final 13 games. He's still having trouble walking.

    One of the NBA's all-time tough guys as a player, Oakley was in his first season as an assistant. He says he doesn't know if he'll need surgery and if he'll be able to be on the bench in the fall.

    Coach Paul Silas says he'll decide soon whether to replace Oakley on his staff.


    If he's replaced now, and is then able to return at some point, I wonder if he'd be interested in being an Assistand under whoever our new HC is.

    I'd love to have Oakley back with the Raps.
Working...
