    It's blatantly a lie right now lol.




    FWIW both Highkin and Marang saying this is a recent development is significant though. Sounds like no shortage of suitors though.

    I won't be sad if he is let go, but I just hope they don't Caleb Kanales the hell out of the replacement.

    Having been a prime Chauncey naysayer pretty much since he was hired I can't really complain, but I wonder if replacing him would set Ayton back. Seems like somebody finally reached him the last month or so of the season.

    It's funny you used Kaleb as an example in this scenario but not Cronin.

    Just want to point out... I called this.

    Also am calling it again now, if Chauncey is out, he goes to Detroit for their front office opening.

    Surprising to hear he would quickly become a candidate for openings. He doesn't seem to be much of an X's and O's coach. Other than Ayton (and that's marginal improvement) I wouldn't say anybody has really improved. It's arguable that any improvement came just from getting a lot of playing time.
    I hope he finds something he enjoys. I've actually talked to him a few times at his daughter's volleyball matches and he is very down to earth and approachable. He even started conversations with me twice, which celebs don't often do.
    The next thought I have is who is next? Or, what kind of coach is next? I wish Udoka or Monty Williams were available, especially Ime.

    If this is true, I would assume that he did not want to tank another year and the FO does.
    Even though I don't want to tank again, I really can't blame either side.

    This is an occasion when if I were a mod (not that I would ever be allowed to be one) I would change the thread title as misleading.

    I really don't care who the coach or assistants are next season, ideally someone who can develop players and keep sane when the losses pile up. X and O, wins and losses just don't matter at all.

    Chauncey was one of the two people left from the Olshey era.

    Ant is the only one left - although Cronin was the one that gave him his current contract

    There's a big difference between "gone" and "may be gone soon". Also between "bogus" (which might just mean "bad news") and "fake"

    I'm ambivalent on Billups. Don't really care either way...

    but this just seems typical of the 'Vulcans-don't-give-a-shit-about-product' management style

    Hopefully we just get developmental people and bide our time until somebody like that is available.

    For those who want him gone.......how many wins does a new coach (that the Blazers can realistically lure here) increase our total?

    Very little if at all... though I believe the organization will be tanking again, so I'm not sure this is the proper metric to measure anything.
