Default Re: coaching staff?

The Jazz's new coaching foursome could become a five piece.

With young Utah big men Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter in need of isolated training and veteran Al Jefferson yet to reach his ceiling, Utah's front-court loaded roster would benefit from a player development coach.

Much like the recent hiring of assistant Sidney Lowe, though, the addition hinges on timing.

If the NBA lockout ends by Monday and the league preserves a full 82-game season, the Jazz believe that adding a player development coach makes sense. But if the work stoppage continues and a shortened season is in the future ― one that features hectic travel, back-to-back-to-back contests and a lack of downtime ― hiring a skills coach whose job is predicated upon productive practice dates will likely be tabled.

“We'll look at it,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. “We'll see how it plays out.”
