The Utah Jazz find themselves in unfamiliar territory- with a plethora of young and undeveloped big men and a lot of uncertainty surrounding their lineup. The one thing that is certain to me is that WE need to get an assistant that coaching strictly the young bigs on our team. Often times when a team drafts or acquires young and high potential athletes they bring in a big man coach to work exclusively with them. Over the years we’ve seen Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and even Bill Russell step in for organizations and help coach the big men. I’m really surprised to have not heard that Utah is going to do the same thing. Do any of our assistant coaches have experience with big men? As far as I’m aware all of them are only versed in the area of guard play more so than anything else. Has anyone heard anything about this?
Personally I’d love to see Utah bring in someone to help coach our young and talented bigs (Favors, Kanter) but I’m yet to hear this possibility even being mentioned. What do you guys think?
