My post was before the news on Nate, and I also agree with it. The question is: will they do something positive, or continue to sleepwalk through the rest of the season. New faces do not assure success.

I think they realized that Nate had lost this team.  Their performances of late made it pretty obvious the players weren't going to play for him any more.

This season is being written off...   Too late to be a significant player.   Everything will be geared toward building for next year and the future.    Hate to, I really do, but I have to agree with Canzano on this....  Hire a dynamic GM and get Paul Allen and his cronies as far away from decision making as possible.

Exactly right, but also highly unlikely.

Im guessing they sleepwalk which is ok. batum will finally be the guy at the 3 Memo is in the final year of his deal. Then you got a couple years to see what you go with flynn and thabeet. next year could be rough. but with the two first rounders and some cap space they could do a rebuild without hitting rock bottom.

My main concern is coaching. Never was a nate fan but i thought it was real interesting they made canales the interim. Hes been the boy wonder around there and i hope they look at all options and not settle on the money ball video wiz

I wouldnt mind seeing d'antoni. I could be wrong but i think he had a bad experiance here as an assistant
