–  Can Billy Donovan or Fred Hoiberg repeat Steve Kerr’s success?  (from Kurt Helin,  NBC Sports):

” Has any first-year NBA head coach ever walked into a more “win now” situation than Billy Donovan?

The Oklahoma City Thunder are have been considered title contenders ever since they stepped on the court in the 2012 Finals. However, they have yet to return to that stage due to a combination of personnel moves and injuries. Next summer their superstar Kevin Durant is a free agent and he’s the kind of franchise-changing player who will draw 29 other suitors. If OKC is going to keep him they have to prove to Durant he can win it all without having to change addresses. It’s a lot to ask of a rookie NBA coach.

Maybe the guy who can best relate is Fred Holberg, who was brought in from Iowa State to take over a Chicago Bulls team that has not lived up to expectations the past several seasons. He takes over for an innovative coach, but with with a mandate from management to rest guys more, modernize the offense, and lift a team known for physically breaking down up to challenge Cleveland.

That’s setting the bar ridiculously high.

Donovan and Hoiberg can thank Steve Kerr for that — he cleared that bar his rookie season.”

–   Grizzlies’ training camp invitees work to get noticed  (from  Ronald Tillery, commercialappeal.com):

”  Sampson Carter, just like the four other training camp invitees, realizes making the Grizzlies’ roster is a long shot. However, these outsiders don’t see themselves as just live bodies to be props for the players with guaranteed contracts. The training camp invitees are performing for their basketball livelihood, hoping they’ll get noticed and eventually paid for their performances in preseason games.

“They’ve stayed within their own games,” Griz coach Dave Joerger said. “We’re not looking for anybody to come in and isolate them and feature them. All of those guys have been conscientious about doing the right thing and that makes camp better.”
