Jason Kidd in the sights of the Blazers? | NBA
Eliminated in the first round, the Blazers are preparing complicated days and weeks because the current workforce is at the end of the cycle. Extended at full cost, CJ McCollum disappointed and last fall rookies like Derrick Jones Jr or Robert Covington were unable to stop Michael Porter Jr on this series.
Badly surrounded, Damian Lillard grew impatient, and the first who could pay the price is none other than Terry Stotts, in place for nine years. Already in April, his dismissal was mentioned. » My job ? I have two years of contract left. We are all going to be evaluated as is the case every year ” he recalled at a press conference. “Players, coaches, management,… everyone is evaluated. So we’ll see what happens. «
And according to Yahoo! Sports, he could actually take the door, and the leaders would already have a name in mind to replace him: Jason Kidd! The Lakers know that their assistant is being courted, and the former coach of the Nets and Bucks should also quickly meet the leaders of the Celtics.
A divisive character, he did not leave only fond memories in Brooklyn and Milwaukee, but he recently confided that his experience as an assistant to the Lakers had changed him. He learned to relax and be less demanding.
» Just be more relaxed, appreciate the progress of the team, of each player and not to be too hard, wanting them to be perfect ” he had said. » The most important compared to Milwaukee or Brooklyn is the way the message is delivered, which could have been different. Not so rough, with a little more fun ”.
