To be fair almost all teams lost players due to injury or covid this season. There are also reports, true or not, that Warren asked for a trade once Nate was hired because of the time he spent with him while with the Suns. I do not even want this guy back with the Raptors to be honest. Where there is smoke there is fire.
You must also missed the reports where Warren welcomed Nate to Indiana upon learning of the hire and that Warren tweeted out that the media not use him for their false narratives.
Don't believe everything what the "reports" say, especially considering Nate was with the team for 2 years and the Raptors players showed their support for him.
I'm not sure how real those reports are...
I don't doubt that Nate may well be a difficult guy to work with as a head coach...but what was published about him a couple of weeks ago screams hit piece by the front office to push him out...the reasons why I cannot figure out...but nonetheless it's totally unprofessional.
I don't know for sure how TJ reacted to Nate's hiring...and TJ could have said nothing but instead tweeted this out when Nate was hired:
This doesn't seem like a dude that knew Nate was going to be bad news at the start. Like I said...saying nothing at the time of the hiring would have been the way to handle things if TJ really didn't like Nate.
