    But Billups has been the "frontrunner" since Stotts was fired. Olshey has not hidden that he wants Billups. But he can be overruled.

    and Shams said "locked in"

    it's Woj/Shams' way of revealing real news without explicitly saying it. Similar to how they broke draft picks.

    Probably because Olshey asked em not to officially say it as Chauncey is still employed

    This type of tweet by Woj or Shams doesn’t happen unless it’s almost a done deal.

    So we get Chauncey who was a lot of our number one choice and who I imagine after Kidd dropped out was Dame's number one choice. Let's see what he can do, what staff he can bring and hopefully he won't be the only difference making move we have made heading into next season.

    Well look like they made there mind up it's just not official. I wish him luck and hope he make changes that will make us better ball club. Olshey better hope this pan because it's his job on the line.

    They probably finished interviews earlier today or late yesterday and had some time to decide today. And they probably wanted to make the decision ASAP because there are a lot of openings so if they like someone they should just make the push instead of trying to deliberate. A coaching staff needs to be built as well and without a decision on the head coach, they can't proceed. Good assistants may be gone by then.

    Eric Gunderson and Mike Richman said that Blazers had among the lowest paid asst coaches in the league recently.

    I hope that changes now.

    Really vital to get someone with real head coaching experience in the past to be on Chauncey's side.

    If it doesn't he's fired as well, so no harm there.

    well they didn’t have one assistant worth a fuck, so it lines up.

    Don't care for Fizdale as a head coach, and feel like his impact was overstated in Miami while he was assistant mainly because he was just close to the stars. But at least he has been a HC before.

    I would look at stealing someone from GS (Mike Brown is screaming at me)
