JS: Switching to offence for a minute, you’ve said you want a “free-flowing” offence this season. Can you expand on that?

DC: The NBA now is so sophisticated and so well scouted that I've found -- and the only way I can describe it is where I was previously in Dallas -- that it's much easier to score when you have different weapons and things are random, but there's a method to the madness.

Random pick-and-rolls and random pass-and-cut. It’s about ball movement more so than coming up and calling a set play every time down the floor. Now will we have set plays? Yes. But when we don't have anything, when we push the ball down the floor, we want to flow into our random play. It makes it more difficult for defensive teams to get set, to set on your play, to sit in our offensive players' laps and play their tendencies. But all at once something happens that's random that hasn't been scouted, but that’s within our system. We're going to be organized with it, but it can't be scouted because it’s in the flow of play. Maybe it’s pick-and-rolls, maybe it’s pin downs, but it will be something with the ball going side-to-side with ball movement.


love this. Tough and disciplined on D and this as our tactic on O. To me sounds very promising.

One of the reasons we won 47 games in 06-07 was ball movement and unselfish play. And that kind of offense is fun to watch. Let's hope this is how our offense is run. This all sounds good, we'll see soon enough what happens. Going to take time though and there isn't much of that to go around.

could be good for us that there is less time, in a perverse way. Bad start to the season, get ourselves a bad record and then towards the end of the season they start getting it and we see some good performances, but not enough wins to take us out of the bottom 7!

I thought this was pretty cool - and something I was unaware of.

Quote:
JS: Jonas' club team Lietuvos Rytas is coached by Alexander Dzikic, one of your former assistants in Minnesota. What's the level of communication going to be like between the two of you?

DC: I plan on saying staying in touch with Alex. They're using the same terminology and some of the same offensive sets that we used and are going to use here, so that's going to help. Alex is going to help him with his English and try to get Jonas ready and let him know what NBA culture is about, so that will help the transition be a little bit quicker. He’ll tell him some of the things he can or can't do and just prepare him for being in an NBA setting. That's a big plus for us to have him there as his coach. He's got a job to do, which is try to win for his team, but on the other hand he's going to try to help Jonas as much as he possibly can.

yeah, interesting. Doubt many knew that one. Added little bonus in his development/transition.

So, he's looking for a free agent defensive center veteran who's vocal and got leadership abilities but who can still play at high level, huh?
Sounds like Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
