I put this on Rosas, not Saunders. I feel Rosas is trying to implement a system, and there was no variation this season to try to get it in place. Remember Rosas saying last off-season that it wasn’t about wins and losses, and that they weren’t going to play two bigs, even against the biggest teams where it made sense, because “we wanted other teams to adjust to us, not have us adjust to them?”
I don’t think Saunders was given an inch of latitude to scheme. And I don’t think Glen had the final say on Ryan staying, I felt Rosas wanted someone who would be loyal and stick with his system, even though it would lead to losses for now.
Finally, I am not an X and O’s guy, but I still think the system is the right one to maximize Towns - we have just had rotten personnel to run it. Add in KAT’s unwillingness to not stay in the defensive system, and his desire to chase the ball. Neither of these things really fall on Saunders, so my opinion on him as a in-game coach right now is .. To Be Determined.
In his favor is that Towns seems to love him and the locker room seems much better, but he needs to start showing wins this year, or he could lose even that.
