Literally hundreds of coaches fit that profile. The Thunder brought a coach out the G league and I think it’s safe to say he’s on a good track.
O.K. if that is true then why the focus on Redick when as you say there are tons of options out there who would fill the HC position similar to or better than a guy like Hurley??

Yeah people don’t get how many guys are good at X’s and O’s

The real talent is being able to manage egos and get buy in from yo ur top players and develop your young guys into key rotation Pieces

Sone teams think they have to have a splash, or at least the appearance of trying to make one. Get a basketball guy and stick with him.

This is where a team can really help a young coach by helping him put the right staff around him.

I agree. But the Lakers often get caught- up in the big splash players and coaches when sometimes what they want is among the less glitzy candidates.

Not really. Offensive pace is a huge part of a team. Donovan played on a slower pace in Utah and Snyder too. Style of play matters
Cannot say I have followed Borrego's career that closely but if memory serves would seem like it would be tough to know exactly what he is or wants to be coaching only one team that was not very good.

Coaches have coaching styles, whether they coached for a long time or they learned from others. He was an assistant under Pop. Spurs teams also have slower paces so I mean...it is what it is. It doesn't mean he is a better coach than Atkinson. My entire point was fit will matter a lot when hiring a coach.

I lie Atkinson and he never should’ve been fired in brook

Borrego should be good in theory but only worked for a dumpster fire

I hear ya....and my point was I prefer a coach who can adjust his style based on his players and how they might fit/play together. Has there not been a coach who coached under Pop to run a faster pace when his situation called for it?

Hell, if I'm not mistaken, our most recent coach went from one of the slower paced teams to more middle of the pack, didn't he?

Of course it is


They overpaid medicore role players for 3 years because the entire Memphis front court got hurt

Now they have no expiring contracts

Their best bet is dejounte Murray depending on the price

But you need both him and reaves to step up their defense in that case
