Default Toronto Sun: Triano keeping club's rotation close to his vest

Quote:
Raptors coach Jay Triano may not have had his complete arsenal at his disposal yet this pre-season, but that hasn't stopped him from going ahead and making some key decisions with regard to his rotation.

"I'm pretty much set," Triano said after practice yesterday.

"You guys only get to see the pre-season games, but I get to see these guys every day in practice.

"And guys have played themselves in and out of positions.

"I feel pretty comfortable where we are rotation-wise."

While calling an eight-or nine-man rotation ideal, Triano isn't about to put a ceiling on the number of players he may call on regularly.

You guys are witnessing the beginning of what will be a very successful and respected NBA coaching career.

Jay Triano know's his job.

I sure hope so. I have faith in Jay. He's a hard worker - always has been.

Let's wait until he has a 500 season before we predict his career as respected and successful.

A. Miss you two.

B. I've seen many good things from Jay, his passion and his professionalism has been superb. Only factor that will dictate his future will be the number of wins, and I just hope he can pull it off.

The odds are very good that he'll be respected. There is a pretty small percentage that doesn't achieve that (outside of where they coach - because practically no coach has respect in their own market).

Success? He has a lot of things going for him. There looks to be a lot of cohesion from top to bottom. That bodes well for any coach, and success will be something that is shared and then need to be maintained. He's got a shot at that, and probably the awareness of what lies before him. Luck always enters into that equation though, in one way or another. I'm hoping he's lucky as much as anything else.

I wonder if Amir broke the top nine? Tough accomplishment with Reggie Evans in town.

I don't see rasho getting into the rotation to be honest, unless there are injuries. I'd rather have amir over rasho any day, based on what I've seen so far

Amir seems too small and off balance to play Centre, isn't he a PF. In fact he said he can play SF, which is bullshit.

Rasho will be there. He's solid, this team needs to perform this year and he's the only true center on the team.

agreed...but I have Amir/Rasho spliting time depending on matchups...good to hear Triano is willing to play more than 8/9 guys. Not sure why Triano would limit the rotation to 8/9 players (unless it's a motivational tool) now that the Raptors have depth. Rasho may not see a lot of floor time (but will be valuable in practise/lockeroom/injury) but against the Howards/Shaq's etc. he should see some PT.

If Belinelli's shot isn't falling I wouldn't be surprised if Jay has a quick hook and put's Sonny into play, he may even have the back-up role over Beli.

Wright will get the PT if anybody does. Amir can play both forward spots and could cover backing up Hedo to allow for Wright to play the 2 should Marco flop.

check out his pre-season stats bud. The NBA is no longer all about 7-footers. I think for some matchups Rasho will be called on but not regularly.

My rotation would be:

Calderon
Derozan
Turkoglu
Bosh
Bargnani

Jack
Belinelli
Wright
Evans
If Belli or Wright don't peform well put in Sonny
If Evans doesn't perform well put in Amir
For big man matchups put in Rasho

incase of injury:

Douby
Banks
P.O.B

amir is better than rasho in every respect, but offense. But let's not kid ourselves, these days rasho's offense is limited to mid range jumpers when open. Amir's defense is incomparable, and the only matchups where I can see rasho having an advantage is against the big guys (howard, shaq), when amir might get into foul trouble. Although Rasho couldn't defend howard 2 years ago, he won't be any better now.
