    Clippers interviewed assistant Sam Cassell for franchise’s head coaching job on Tuesday, sources tell ESPN. Cassell spent six seasons on Doc Rivers’ staff.

    Mike D'Antoni a candidate to join Steve Nash's coaching staff with Nets.

    By Jeremy Chua Clutchpoints:


    Former Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni recently emerged as a candidate to land a position in the coaching staff of newly-hired Brooklyn Nets head tactician Steve Nash. Another notable individual potentially included in the mix is Phil Handy who currently serves as an assistant coach to the 2020 NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, according to Frank Isola.

    This is a shocker as Daryl Morey steps down as Rockets GM.

    The Clippers don’t have a strong voice in that locker room

    so they hire the guy that would literally be outside of team huddles while Lebron drew up plays in Cleveland lol

    yeahhhh... I don’t think this works at all. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Clippers don’t go the way of the early 2000’s Blazers who had a boatload of talent, blew their big shot against the Lakers in that Game 7 in 2000 and then just never kind of recovered.

    biggest difference... this Clippers team never even got to take their shot at the Lakers because of their meltdown.

    I don't think that's too surprising. The roster was built for D'Antoni and once he was canned it'll be a difficult task to return it to normal for another head coach to compete. Wouldn't surprise me if Harden is moved this offseason or before the trade deadline this upcoming season.

    Morey's tweet about Hong Kong didn't help either.

    Morey had a analytics based philosophy and a master at maximizing assets... until the last couple seasons. In their desperation to get over the hump they made some moves that went against the methodology that got them to the brink. Stuff like signing Carmelo and trading for Westbrook, players that did not fit the analytics that the team had been built around. They have used up virtually all their trade capital in order to build a roster that seems significantly worse than it was a couple seasons ago.

    They really over extended themselves. Virtually all their draft picks for the next SIX years are owed to other teams, they have no cap space for years, James Harden is probably their only asset that would give them a good haul in a trade.

    Morey got out while before the ship sank. If the new GM isn't a miracle worker that franchise is about to go down the drain.
