  • Forget D'Antoni in Toronto

    Nice words. They go without saying because a long term relationship usually means success. But they were still go to read regardless.

    Colangelo and Casey's futures are intertwined. I think Colangelo's pitch for this two season extension was turning over a new leaf. That being, a focus on a two way game and a focus doing a traditional rebuild. If he were to ditch that plan now to sign MDA and then the team didn't meet the expectations we know Colangelo would be done here after next season. If he sticks to the plan and doesn't meet expectations he still has a shot at a long term deal if it's obvious there has been significant steps forward.

      Maybe Pringles can be brought in as an offensive consultant

        Bringing in D'antoni as an offensive coach would be awesome. Although, i doubt he would take the job.

          I think it would send the wrong message to Casey as well. Coaches typically pick their crew. He would instantly be looking over his shoulder and I think trust would become an issue. In essence, it might hurt Colangelo and Casey's relationship.

            Agreed. Bringing in D'Antoni would have to be Casey's idea...

              And even then, the more I think about it, it sounds like too many cooks in the kitchen. The reason coaches like to bring in their own crew and the reason why managers support and respect that is they want people who agree with their own philosophies and coaching style. That's my take on it anyway. It's the same reason why most new GM's immediately axe the old head coach when they enter the scene.

                  Yeah but if you want to attract Nash to come to Toronto as some of you alluded to then there is no better attraction to Nash (other then a proven winner) then having D'Antoni as part of the coaching staff.

                    Being in and playing in Canada, and coming into a team with a lot of potential talent should be well enough for Nash to want to come here, but that would be even more attractive for sure.
