I hope some team just takes one for the entire league and its fanbase and hires JVG, Mark Jackson, Chris Webber and Reggie Miller as their coaching staff. I would love that team forever for that (as long as it isn't the Bulls).

Jackson never gets hired because of how his exit from GS went down and no one wants to touch that after review.

JVG is only leaving for the right situation and the one he desires to be in.

Lue is a good coach, he just thinks too highly of himself with regards to contract length.

Yeah, the intel that is out on Mark Jackson will likely make him never land a head coaching job. JVG and Lue are safer hires.

JVG has the best agent. He has been out of the league for 13 years and is as old school as they come. He should not be mentioned for any of these openings.

I think most look at the player development under him and see how well liked by the players he was and think it's a good idea, then they take a peak below the surface and say "nevermind"

Really? I think he rode the LeBron train and hasn't done much coaching at all. I'd take him on as an assistant, maybe.

Found this play on Twitter and thought it was pretty clever. Honestly didn't know where to post it, so here it it.

@Dakota_Schmidt: I don't think I've ever seen a play like this that's both pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop but I love it. https://t.co/e5UZKNZSgu
I don't know anything about college basketball. I would rather trade down/out. My Bulls big board for the 2020 Draft (as of October 26th):
1-Edwards; 2-Hayes; 3-Ball; 4-Haliburton; 5-Nesmith; 6-Williams; 7-Vassel; 8-Maxey; 9-Avdija; 10-Okongwu.

Please no - can't stand James Harden. I know that sounds dumb, but we won't be a chip contender with him, and all his iso ball will wear my eyes out.

Sounds like the Heat will go after Giannis. I wouldn't bet against Pat Riley getting him either. As much as I used to not care for the Heat, anything that makes it less likely that Lebron will win again is fine by me.

They'd surely have to trade Bam. Which they should for Giannis.

Nah. Bam is the defensive center that would allow Giannis to keep playing the same free safety role he has next to Lopez. If you want Herro/Robinson/Nunn to keep playing big minutes, you really need to surround them with defense.

And I bet Bam is going to be shooting a lot more threes next season.

Fair question: is there any reason for Giannis not to sign with MIA or DAL next year? Either spot would be an excellent organization with an excellent perimeter co-star with excellent 3D role-players and excellent coaching staff. Best of all, everyone would be rooting for them to beat the Lakers or Clippers.

If I'm MIL, I'm either going for the mortgage-the-future grand-daddy 1y run, knowing there's a 75% chance of bust (since frankly LAC, LAL and the others are contending favorites regardless who MIL adds) and 2-4y Nets style crumble, or risk just quietly losing Giannis in another squeaky Eastern conference run, and getting ready for a rebuild with no timeline since they'll basically be the 2010-14 Cavs.

I don't know how they can do it (well, a LOT of future FRPs), but they should really go all out and try to offer the whole kitchen for Harden or Beal. Like, 2021-2029 picks, as absurd as it sounds.

Middleton, Hill, DiVincenzo, Bledsoe, 21-29 unprotected FRPs and swaps for Harden

Or put some light protections (top-2 or 4) on the back-end of the 2025-beyond picks for a Beal/Wall package.

Is it too crazy? MIL might not get a star like Giannis ever again, and I really don't see what the mid/late FRPs are gonna do for them. Sure, I see the risk in a decade of FRP annihilation. On the other hand, MIL has seen stars come and go (Vin Baker, Big Dog, Ray Allen, Cassell) with nothing remotely close to the success they'd had with Giannis. If you get Harden or Beal, Giannis probably sees a nice 3-5 year contending window.
