Default Smith: Triano pleased with progress

Quote:
It's been just over four months since Jay Triano got a life-changing phone call from GM Bryan Colangelo with an offer too good to refuse.

And it has been a trying few months since he was elevated from assistant to interim head coach of the Raptors, with more losses than wins, much more disappointment than elation, but ask Triano today if he's a better man for the experience and the answer comes quickly and unequivocally.

"Absolutely," Triano said yesterday after putting the Raptors through their final practice of the season at the Air Canada Centre. "(I've got) a better understanding of things. At first I was overwhelmed by the Xs and Os and the preparation for a game that an assistant coach does, and I still do that, but I think as time went on, I got to understand it's a lot more about the personal dealings with the players and the different ways to motivate different guys and different buttons to push."
