Time for a coaching change. They either don't listen to him, or he doesn't actually coach.

Last few possessions, Demar ISOs. Not even an attempt to move the ball and get an easy look.

Starters still working shit out. Bench is paying fantastic D, I'd consider moving OG to the starters and have Norm play the 2 more. FVV needs some time on the bench until he stops cutting so much with the ball.

Poeltl
Siakiam
Miles
Powell
Wright

Is a nightmare defensively. If Siakam and Anunoby can keep up shooting 3's the team is going to be fun to watch.

Ibaka is pissing me off this season, I know he's putting up decent numbers, just something about his body language or decisions or something. He just doesn't look like he fits with the rest of the lineup.

I still cut ties with Casey. I don't see him coaching this team past what they've already accomplished.

I don't really see him as the issue. Either DeMar and Kyle play the new style or they retreat to isolation ball. If they do retreat I'm doubting a new coach is going to fix it without moving out one or both of them out.

The ball movement game seems to have lifted him. I suppose it's easier to feel involved when you're actually involved.

It's why the bench unit has been so good. They might not have the best offensive unit, but, that ball whips around between them.

The amount of young guys that have turned into actual NBA players is pretty insane considering the hit rate in the NBA is so low. Wright, Powell, Poeltl, Siakam, and Anunoby. That every player selected in the last three drafts is in the rotation is fantastic.

Most of them by necessity, but yes. All have passed Bruno, who I expect will be lost. One cannot overlook what Raptors 905 has brought to the table. It has really helped development.

They're in the rotation because they deserve it. Bruno isn't because he doesn't. This isn't a Rafael Araujo or something of his ilk situation getting play time because they have nothing else.

No. If the Raps are moving two 5's Nog would be the second and then depending on how the cap works for trades(Gasol makes 22.6/24.1/25.6) they're between 4 and 7 million apart. The team is already flirting with the Luxury tax and this would push them into it and I'm not sure Ujiri would do that for a guy about to be 33 and making huge money. And the team is already looking at being into the luxury tax next season when Norm's extension kicks in.

It's not happening. The team is already into the luxury tax for next season, they're not going to add another 4 or 5 million to land a guy who's almost 33 and probably won't work well with Ibaka. The team should be looking for a 4 and move Ibaka over to the 5.

He'll work fine because he passes the ball well and reads well too.

Much better than Valanciunas
