    Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey gestures while watching the Raptors and the Boston Celtics in Toronto

    New Raptors head of all things basketball Massai Ujiri has not been shy about making changes — gone is VP of basketball operations Ed Stefanski, some other front office people and a number of scouts. Ujiri wants his people in place. What is not changing is the coach. Despite a rough season last year, Dwane…

    Raptors Bargnani reacts to a missed basket against the Nets during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    We wrap up PBT’s Atlantic Division previews this week by going north of the border. Next week we head to the Midwest and the Central Division. Last season: Sure, a 23-43 record isn’t good. But it really wasn’t that bad. Seriously. Sure, the Toronto offense was dreadful and would have been the worst in the…

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, DeJuan Blair, Gregg Popovich

    The announcement came Tuesday afternoon with a press conference to follow where Gregg Popovich will be uncomfortable answering media questions.

    Raptors Bargnani reacts to a missed basket against the Nets during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    It’s seems weird to write this but… Andrea Bargnani is playing really well this year. Raptors blogs are noticing. Everyone watching them is noticing. He’s shooting better (52.7 percent overall and 37 percent from three), scoring more (22.8 per game) while taking fewer shots, rebounding more, turning the ball over less and has an All-Star…

  5. Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat as NBA champions?

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:16 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    After a trying, decade-long run that consistently placed them along the title’s periphery, the Dallas Mavericks finally claimed their first ever NBA championship last June. The fact that Dirk and the Mavs are the reigning champs still seems like a hazy dream — a vision almost too similar to a storybook to be real, and an…

    dwane Casey

    Last season: 22-60. It was even uglier than it sounds. Head Coach: Dwane Casey, who will finally get another crack at a head coaching gig. Casey seemed to be unfairly typecast as an assistant over the last few seasons, but the Raptors have brought him in on the strength of a championship-worthy defensive system. Casey’s…

    Dwane Casey smiles after being introduced as the new head coach of the Raptors in Toronto

    Put me in the group of NBA bloggers who wanted to see Dwane Casey get another chance at the big seat. First off, he did a pretty good job in the big seat the first time but got thrown to the sidelines because an owner misread how much talent his team really had. And in…

    Jun 21, 2011, 2:13 PM EST

    Somebody is going to hire Dwane Casey and be glad they did. He is the coach behind the defensive schemes that just earned Dallas a ring (or whatever they are getting).

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    While Minnesota and Golden State went the route of hiring television analysts, it looks like Toronto may be going the more traditional route of hiring a top assistant coach who has some head coaching experience. That’s what Doug Smith is reporting in the Toronto Star. According to multiple NBA sources, the Raptors have narrowed the…

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    Would you hire a man who says “Mamma, there goes that man” as your head coach? A guy who says “give me better offense any day” every game? The Golden State Warriors are apparently considering it. Former player and current ESPN/ABC analyst Mark Jackson is a finalist for the Warriors head coaching job, according to…

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    The Rockets are going to offer their head-coaching job maybe as soon as Friday to… someone.

  18. Report: McHale frontrunner for Rockets coaching job

    May 21, 2011, 4:59 PM EST

    Assistant coach Kevin McHale of the Rook

    Honestly, after his last stint as general manager than coach in Minnesota, I didn’t think we’d ever see Kevin McHale walking the NBA sidelines as a coach again. But he has interviewed everywhere this spring (recently with the Warriors) and was one of the three finalists for the Houston Rockets job. Now he is more…

  20. Golden State to interview Lakers assistant Brian Shaw

    May 13, 2011, 10:31 AM EST

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw remains the most likely guy to replace Phil Jackson on the Lakers bench. Getting the endorsement of Kobe Bryant matters. But if the Lakers go another direction (hello Rick Adelman) Shaw is going to have options. The Golden State Warriors got permission to talk to Shaw, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay…

    Apr 21, 2011, 9:54 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    The problem wasn’t Rick Adelman’s body of work, it was the feeling by Houston Rockets management he wasn’t the guy for a rebuilding team. They want a young coach to grow with and mold a rebuilding team, and so they are reaching out to top assistants from around the league, according to the Houston Chronicle.…

  23. Report: Former Cavs coach Mike Brown heads Pacers list

    Mar 11, 2011, 5:30 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    It’s not fair — it’s on the players, not him — but Frank Vogel is not coming back as the Pacers head coach next season. He is this season’s Kim Hughes — good guy, good coach, thrown in an impossible situation and not brought back because he could not herd cats. So who is next?…

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

    Two years ago, the Chicago Bulls were faced with a choice: the experienced and tactically wise Dwane Casey, or the energetic newcomer who had no experience but had a plan for developing young talent in Vinny Del Negro.
