Former head coach, defensive minded, Spurs tree. Makes sense. Pretty strong resume for an assistant, granted most of the big stuff happened a decade ago.

as long as he isn't stuck in the 90s and 2000s. He seem like he will be a switch up from Brett pertaining to him not being afraid to get on players

Im good with this. I like that he continues to fill his vacancies with guys with experience (D'Antoni,O'Brien,Monty) on top of the younger coaches on the staff...creates a good balance IMO.

Avery likely see's this as a way to build himself back up to another NBA gig. Say what you want about Brett and his coaching, but this position has helped springboard several guys to head coaching gigs fairly quickly.

Lang (albeit college), Williams, Pierce, D'Antoni. That Assistant position has been fruitful for many. Avery is no dummy.

I am not against Avery. My concern is that we hire someone to help Brett with his Xs and Os
and who can step in mid-season if we're struggling and/or Brown isn't using or developing his
bench. I don't know if Avery's that person.

I like the decision on the medical staff IF IT MEANS Brand and Harris plan to take managing
Embiid's minutes, diet, etc. seriously. Which means: Brand will have to bring in a backup
center. Kyle O'Quinn and Robin Lopez are both out there. So are Noah and possibly Nerlens.
My preferences are O'Quinn and Lopez.

I'm expecting he will draft the next Landry Shamet.

But we can't go into the playoffs again with seven players the coach will play and then he
doesn't play two in the second half of a Game 7 we should have won.
