What does an ideal team look like built around Scottie Barnes?
Raptors Republic
by Louis Zatzman
16h ago
Raymond Chandler was many things before his protagonist detective Philip Marlowe entered the public consciousness. He worked in the navy. He was a reporter. He was a poet. He worked for an oil company. He was good at some things but far from a influence in the broad fields of his different endeavors. Eventually, out of money during the Great Depression, he decided to write some pulp fiction to stay afloat. Within a few years, hardboiled detective fiction was born. All this to say: It can take time for a fertile context to yield seeds for the right person. Scottie Barnes is a brilliant NBA play ..read more

Day 39/59: Countdown to Change
Raptors Republic
by Louis Zatzman

Still no Raptors news. Lotta coaching names out there right now. Is it just me, or does Miami fracture the entire concept of analysis? God I wish I could write about them for FiveThirtyEight. But they’re pretty much breaking history by even making it this far — the Knicks made the Finals as an 8 seed, of course, but it was in a lockout season, so the regular season was less predictive with fewer games. Right now, the Knicks can just assume they’ll shoot better as a team than should feasibly be possible, and they’ll do it with very mediocre shooters simply hitting all their shots. How can you a ..read more

Nurse and Griffin are rehired. Where does that leave Toronto?
Raptors Republic
by Louis Zatzman
6d ago
For a long time, the fruit of Toronto's coaching tree grew in lands far and wide. Two of Nick Nurse's assistants became head coaches in far-flung cities; Chris Finch in Minnesota and Nate Bjorkgren in Indianapolis. Head coaches of the Raptors 905 like Jama Mahlalela received promotions to join other teams -- the Golden State Warriors for Mahlalela. Others, like Jerry Stackhouse, became successful NCAA coaches. Still others became the seeds of coaching talent that helped grow the Canadian Elite Basketball League, including Ryan Schmidt, Charles Kissi, Charles Dube-Brais, Arsalan Jamil, and Wi ..read more

Some movement in the coaching carousel. Adrian Griffin, former lead assistant under Nick Nurse for your Toronto Raptors, was hired as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. I have a long, long piece about that coming out for the Milwaukee Bucks sometime very soon on nba dot com, which is cool. It’ll be free and unlocked, and once it’s out, I’ll hyperlink it to here. I don’t see this as affecting Toronto’s coaching search very much. Griffin did factor into Toronto’s search, and he did interview, but it doesn’t surprise me that the Raptors wanted an outside voice to change the team entirely. Mos ..read more
