Default Jerry Sloan

If at all possible I would give Sloan complete control of basketball operations in Toronto. Make him President, GM and Head Coach.

If at all possible, yes, but I don't think it is.

No chance in hell this happens, but I'd love to have him as our head coach.
Either him or Messina and I'll be satisfied.

This would only work for a younger coach who is seeking that kind of power. Sloan, despite not having the accolades, has built up his legacy nicely and has zero incentive to come a mess like the Raptors are right now.

no way in hell does Sloan accept a job offer to coach the half-assing losers we have accumulated on this team. No way in hell will he be okay with the way our team plays defense, IQ and mindset of some players on this team. The Jazz were still a very good team and he quit on them...he would nuke this raptors team.

Bargnani has a better chance of winning DPOY than Jerry Sloan has of coming out of retirement to coach the raptors.

Sloan would never come to the Raptors. He doesn't need those headaches at his age and why would he risk tarnishing his legacy.

I would be extremely happy with a Lawrence Frank hiring. Great basketball IQ and an emphasis on defense. Exactly what we need.

I would think that IF Sloan decides to coach again, it would be with a team that has a real legit shot at a championship. Something the Raptors do not have.
