    At this point in coaching.
    Their success is more predicated on their ability to control the roster
    He has BEAL/KD/BOOKER - this should guarantee 50 wins right there
    1. Need a competent point Guard - Who's out there and how much money can they throw at them?
    https://hoopshype.com/lists/2024-nba-free-agent-rankings-top-point-guards-available/
    -- honestly Harden would be good cause he is ok with not scoring at all these days
    -- Nets/Philly/Clips didn't work because he needed to score . . .. being 4th and playing his cp3 role
    -- BUT THEY DON'T HAVE HARDEN MONEY - I don't think

    2. Defensive Center - someone else that won't ask for the ball
    https://hoopshype.com/lists/2024-nba-free-agent-rankings-top-centers-available/
    Drummond
    Bismack Biyombo
    Theis
    Precious Achiuwa
    Mo Bamba
    Wiseman
    JAvelle McGee
    EDEY!! LOL

    Their whole thing is to be CHEAP CHEAP

    The guys doing the firing have had more to do with these clubs failures than the guy getting fired.
    But those individuals are not going to fire themselves, are they?

    That roster can't be saved by coaching. Also, is there a tiny pool of options that these franchises are allowed to hire from? It seems like we're seeing the same guys bouncing from team to team.

    Steve Nash?

    I think players don't know what they want in a coach. Just hire a good coach, win games, and things fall into place.

    I think Bud is a good floor raiser. His problem is in game (or in series) adjustments. That may be worth stomaching for this team since getting to and having a competitive 2nd round series would be an achievement.
