My apologies: the Raptors are also hiring Tom Sterner, late of the 76ers, Mavericks, Golden State and Magic, to the staff.

Just found the rest of the story on NBA.com:

Raptors coach Casey completes staff

Quote:

New Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey has completed the bulk of his coaching staff, with former Raptors assistant and 76ers and Magic head coach Johnny Davis agreeing to join his staff as lead assistant coach.

Davis coached Allen Iverson in his rookie season in Philadelphia, but was fired after one season. He spent parts of two seasons as Orlando’s head coach, and was interim head coach in Memphis after Marc Iavaroni was fired two years ago, before the Grizzlies named Lionel Hollins head coach. Davis, a former teammate of Hollins’ on Portland’s world championship team in 1976, remained on Hollins’s staff.

Davis will join assistant Scott Roth, who had interviewed for an assistant’s job with the Lakers under new head coach Mike Brown, but will remain in Toronto. Roth had been at Golden State, Memphis and Dallas before joining the Raptors in 2009, and also has extensive international coaching experience. Assistants Eric Hughes and Micah Nori will also remain as holdovers from Jay Triano‘s staff. Triano was fired at the beginning of the month and Casey was officially hired to replace him last week. Toronto is also hiring longtime assistant coach and scout Tom Sterner to the staff. Sterner was with the 76ers last season and has been with the Warriors, Magic and Mavericks in almost three decades as an NBA coach.

The Grizzlies might lose another assistant coach. Dave Joerger was interviewed earlier this month to join Kevin McHale‘s staff in Houston, but a final decision has not yet been made.

They will probably buy him out...

Shifty.py 06-29-2011 02:48 AM

crap

Alex English will be missed

Aamir 06-29-2011 05:44 AM

I actually want PJ and English back. Could care less about Nori or Roth, Hughes is good though to keep around.

I guess Alvin isn't coming back or he's not labeled an assistant??

LX 06-29-2011 07:25 AM

Alvin was moved into the ranks of the suits last year.

They should have said Roth was from somewhere else. He coached here and nobody even knew it, although I guess that made it hard for him to be scapegoated.

Why do you guys pine for coaches that were part of the losing here? I'm sure they're good coaches in their own right..and English was a legend on the court..but I don't get this wanting assistants with no nba coaching success.

Shifty.py 06-29-2011 09:41 AM

English was credited with shot improvement of several of our players. And he is a really nice guy

Yeah, too bad. On a lot of interviews with the younger guys you always hear, "Coach English helped me out with my shot" or something like that.

DanH 06-29-2011 10:01 AM

Huh. I thought Eric Hughes was the coach that worked out with the players most often, working on their shots.

agreed
new head coach...time to clean house as well
fresh philosophy, new faces and voices right down the line
makes sense :)

unlike the Leafs who hire all new assistants and keep Wilson at the helm
baffling to say the least :(

Wilson is on a short leash, if they start poorly yet again he's a goner.

I agree. Look at the amount of people that wanted Triano back as an assistant. He's been ccoaching on this team what 8yrs or so before this summer, that i don't get.
