Poll

I think he will be gone as the head coach.

If you guys think he's gone, who do you think should (or will) be brought in to replace him?

Well if Leiweke is serious about thinking big, we should be like the Clippers and reaching out to JVG/SVG.

But if we're unable to get one of them, I'd look to hire Brian Shaw. I've never been a fan of hiring someone with no head coaching experience, but I think Shaw is capable of coming in and becoming a good head coach immediately from his experience working as Phil Jacksons right hand man, and being coached by him before that. I honestly think he'd turn out like Thibodeau did, after his years as JVGs right hand guy.

JVG would be awesome, any of those guys would be awesome hires, but highly unlikely

Doesn't matter - tanking means no big name coach. This team's future coach will be hired a few years from now.

Hopefully.

A year from now. Casey's deal expires and IF we're going to tank why hire a new coach when the current one only has 1yr left?

A new coach should be Ujiri's first move. He has to start establishing a new culture from day one. If he decides that Casey can be his long term coach, he'll keep him on. If he decides Casey isn't, he'll cut him loose. He's been around the NBA long enough to make the decision. He doesn't need to keep Casey around for another year to make the decision. Don't think he'll let grass grow under his feet. None of this manana stuff. I don't think he's about tanking. If that was the preferred route, they just would have picked up BC's option for one year only. Anything that BC would have wanted to do would have to have been OK'd by TL, so stupid things would have been stopped in their tracks.

i'm with niggles. the GM should bring in his guys that will be working with his philosophy so they can have a strong relationship and share the same vision on players roles and expectations. casey isn't ujiri's guy, so get rid of him.

The timing might not be great to get his guy. And Karl might give Casey a good reference worth a year.

If we are en route to tanking, I don't know how Casey will respond to it. He seemed reluctant to tank even with a losing record for the past years, and if he's on his final year I would assume he would want to win and save his job. If he listens to Ujiri reluctantly to go with the tank, he'd be gone regardless since Ujiri would probably want a dif coach. I think it's a lose-lose for Casey.

The key to tanking is to still try to build a winning attitude in how you play - a competitive coach and competitive players are a good thing. It is up to the GM to ensure that the players there to be played are developing, rather than developed enough to generate significant wins.

I mean, the young guys can try. They're going to lose morale eventually.

You're trying to win yet playing to lose. It's not pleasant nor easy.

Agreed. I mentioned Shaw a while back. I think he'll do well.

I don't think Casey is good enough for the team we are hoping will be built. I also don't think he'd be on board with any tanking, overt or otherwise, so I think he won't be back for next season.
