Default Eric Hughes might be heading to Brooklyn

Another one may leave in a potentially busy Raptors week - Doug Smith's Sports Blog

Quote:
Eric Hughes, the teamís basketball development assistant coach Ė the guy who spends countless hours working out players hither and yon during the season and the summer Ė is in Brooklyn today to have an interview for a job with the Nets.

Itís a logical move for the well-respected Hughes because he was an assistant coach at California when Jason Kidd went there and has known Billy King for years and years.

Itíd be a loss if he were to leave, Hughes worked hard to turn these guys into players, and could leave Dwane Casey and Masai with four jobs to fill from a shrinking market and with little more than one-year contracts to offer potential assistants.

Doug doesn't want anyone changed... it's absurd. Maybe this guy will be missed, but come on Doug.

Doug Smith is a meathead. He's often wrong.

A month prior to the Gay trade, Doug said Lowry would be traded instead of Jose. He also said the Gay talks were dead, and that Memphis wouldn't deal Gay until after the season if they did at all. He's also defended Casey to no end saying how great he is and that they couldn't get anyone better if they fired him. Honestly when I hear him I sometimes wonder what planet he lives on.

shit he says in his blog is an opinion. as often as he's wrong, he's also right with his information as well.

for this, smith is right on both accounts. casey needs to start filling out his assistant positions before we're picking from the bottom of the barrel, and it's going to be hard getting good assistants to commit to the uncertainty of casey's employment.

50/50 isn't an issue being that he's not an insider. he's a beat writer.

your lofty expectations doesn't make him less of a writer when it comes to club related news and stories, which he is there to provide.

It does to me. The guy is bias in his opinions and often wrong when saying shit as if it's fact and acts as if he is an insider. He's a dink.

Glad some of these assistants are leaving. The more thorough the closet cleaning, the better.

This can't be though. Jeff said Doug is often wrong. And a dink. What a mindfuck.

I said he's 50/50. And he's a dink, which is putting it mildly. He can't even get shit straight in his own articles.
