Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 11/8/15

Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger appears to be on the hot seat, according to a recent report from ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, because of the way his team has looked in losses. It’s still very early in the season, but reports of these kind are not unusual in the NBA. The league always has a large turnover in head coaching positions year-to-year and moves often happen during the season.

With style, tempo and chemistry being large focuses in the league, front offices look to shake things up if a team is struggling. Sometimes, the easiest — and least expensive — way to do that and send a message is by relieving the head coach.

That leads us to tonight’s shootaround topic: Which head coach is occupying the warmest seat right now?

This is just me speculating, but Nets coach Lionel Hollins comes to mind because not only is Brooklyn without a win, the team has been blown out in several games.

Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on the matter. We look forward to what you have to say.

      Yes he needs to go ASAP but probably after the end of the year

        I think you’re right. Scott is someone to keep an eye on after the season if the Lakers do not perform well. I have a feeling that if Bryant stays healthy, they will be near .500 and that should keep Scott around. I don’t see them making a move mid-season.

    • Byron Scott keeps saying he’s not focused on developing young players, and rather is focused on winning games. If that’s his attitude, he’s exactly the opposite of what the Lakers need right now. The future of the Lakers rests partly on Russell, Clarkson, and Randle, and having a coach who seems to have no interest in rookie development is foolish. The Lakers are not a playoff team; Byron Scott is not a magician, and Kobe is no longer in his 20’s. Keeping up this pretense of contending is, at this point, counter productive.

      The same goes for Lionel Hollins in Brooklyn. He’s done a fine job keeping the defense well-oiled, but there’s no offense and no plan in place in Brooklyn. Hollins, Joe Johnson, and Jarrett Jack do have significant value for contending teams, but are of little value keeping the rotation warm in Brooklyn.
