This... Avery Johnson is not a great coach, but Id say hes above average, at least way better than the likes of Mike Brown and Vinny Del Negro. There really aint many good coaches available to hire nowadays. Of course it will be better if our head coach is Jerry Sloan, this team is actually constructed pretty well to fit his style. Dont think Deron will like this idea though.
