PBT Extra: Talking Knicks, Lakers, Timberwolves coaching changes

Apr 14, 2014, 5:58 PM EDT

There are going to be a number of coaching changes coming not long after the season ends this Wednesday, a few likely unexpected (remember the rash of firings last summer), but we likely know a few.

In Monday’s PBT Extra Kay Adams and myself talk about three of them. First is Mike Woodson, who will be let go in New York soon and the question is really about who is next (Steve Kerr if he wants it).

Then we go out to the other coast where due to the frustration in the fan base it’s hard to see Mike D’Antoni coming back to coach the Lakers. Then in Minnesota Rick Adelman is expected to step away, but will that really help keep Kevin Love in a Timberwolves uniform?

    I will watch for Kay Adams, that’s it.

    Never been a huge Adelman fan. He never seemed to adapt over the years to the fact that players coming out in the draft, even in the lottery, aren’t finished products any more. If they can’t fit his system, they sit and don’t develop. He either has no player development skills or no desire to do so. When Adelman took his leave to care for his wife, Love was out, and the acting coach gave Derrick Williams big minutes and he produced. Adelman comes back, Love comes back, and DW sits, not even getting regular bench minutes. Wes Johnson never developed there, either.

    LMAO, Phil’s top candidate for head coach is Neil Patrick Harris/Doogie Howser (Steve Kerr).
    Phil has reiterated vocally & through his books that Scottie Pippen was the catalyst
    (besides himself) behind the Bulls championship. If Doogie is head coach then one would hope that
    Pippen is also part of the coaching staff.
    With Kerr as a front runner, I would have my bags packed if I were Melo, that is if Melo really wants to win.
    There is only HOPE that Love or another big name free agent signs in 2015. The Knicks have their hired gun in Melo, so I don’t see Love as a good fit. Rondo would be an upgrade but I’ll bet the house that Ainge
    trades him next season to a team he prefers to sign with (Not the Knicks).
    I see Phil as being hired as a PR man with no impact on creating a championship contender.
    Melo to the Bulls, Heat or a sign & trade to the Clippers. (Rockets will be in on the bidding also)
    Knicks stay mediocre during Jacksons rein!
