WWJD: NBA OFF SEASON

By on April 16, 2014

The regular season is about over, the playoffs are about to start for some and offseason moves will come a bit sooner for others.  Which coaches will not be back next and who will fill the vacant slots they left open? Well here is what I would do:

 

UTAH JAZZ:

Fire head coach Ty Corbin and replace him with Byron Scott. Coach Scott wasn’t given a proper time frame in Cleveland and is a wiz with young PG’s, so Trey Burke will thrive in his system. I would also sign Nick Young and resign Gordon Hayward. In the Draft I would select Julius Randle. Give Coach Scott 3 years to turn this Franchise around and continue to add weapons around Burke in the meantime.

 

Milwaukee Bucks:

Fire head coach Larry Drew and hire Lionel Hollins. Try my best to move Larry Sanders for a lottery pick this year and draft Joel Embid and a guy like Aaron Gordon with the additional pick from the Sanders trade. . I would sign Trevor Ariza in Free Agency and be rocking a lineup with a ton of young talent.

 

New Orleans Pelicans:

Fire head coach Monty Williams and hire Jeff Van Gundy. The Pelicans have a decent lineup so it must be the coaching, go out and snag a JVG and sign an athletic center like Marcin Gortat to round out my roster.

New York Knicks:

I’m sure Phil Jackson has a plan in place and I’m sure Mike Woodson isn’t in that plan, so let’s fire him and hire Steve Kerr, a guy that Phil loves and trusts to run the Triangle. Keeping Melo is key and making the rest of the team buy into the system shouldn’t be an issue. (USA TODAY Sports / The Star-Leger)

Orlando Magic:

Fire head coach… what’s his name? Oh yes.. Jacque Vaughn and replace him Vinny Del Negro. Having Oladipo and Afflalo to build around will be fun, both guys can run and move like the wind so adding Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins only makes sense, I would also go out and sign Michael Beasley and Jordan Hill to complete my new ultra-athletic run and gun team.

 

Minnesota Timberswolves:

Fire head coach Rick Adleman and hire George Karl, let George take over and see if he can get the most out of Rubio and Love. I would take a solid baller in the draft a kid like Stauskas from Michigan would make sense. Look, the Wolves have a short window to do something before they lose Love to the Lakers so they better make it happen now!

 

Cleveland Cavs:

Byron Scott should have never been fired, but since he was and they rehired Mike Brown they should just forfeit the next 2 seasons, but I can help. They need to fire Mike Brown immediately if not sooner and hire David Fizdale as their next head coach. Irving, Waiters and Thompson can all play and drafting a kid like Anderson from UCLA or McDermott from Creighton would be a great fit for the Fizdale ran offense.

So there you have it, I’ve just solved the problems for 7 of the worst teams in the NBA this past year… when in doubt ask yourself.. WWJD…WHAT WOULD JOSH DO?
