Lemanis' replacement?

Once Lemanis' time is up, I would like to see someone different in the job.

I don't know that a U.S. Coach will suit our style, and I don't believe any Aussie coaches really have the wide support or international experience to succeed.

So, who should we target? A Euro-League coach? A top-level South American? What do you think would be a good fit for the team we're likely to have over the next four years?

"Once Lemanis' time is up, I would like to see someone different in the job."

So would I. Mostly because if his time is up and we don't appoint someone different to the job then we're left without any coach, and to me that's not ideal for a basketball team.

If he brings home a medal I'll be in no hurry for his time to be up though.

I'm sure there's plenty of up and coming nba assistants that if the offer and commitments allow would be a better appointment than the same old re runs. With the influx of talent hopefully it'll be an attractive job.

The comments he made in an article that was posted recently (Bullets website IIRC) indicate he's not planning on sticking around regardless.

re: Lemanis' replacement?

Basketball Australia want a full time coach. Lemanis cannot be that due to the Brisbane role. I am wondering why the Boomers really need a full time coach anyway? He spends most of the year not coaching games and apparently he has been out of contact with some of our best prospects. So what really does the year round salary pay for? I can't see why a coach couldn't do both but basketball australia wants to piss money away.

The players don't like him and don't respond to him. He's gone regardless of what he wants.

There'll be international games during NBL season from next year.

Australia's coaching talent pool is very dry and has been for a while now. I wouldn't mind looking overseas.

"apparently he has been out of contact with some of our best prospects."

I also recall Lemanis being reported as being in the loop on decisions by Ingles not to play for the Boomers last year, Simmons not to play Olympics, Bogut's latest drama and the situation with Exum's availability. That all seemed to point to him keeping lines of communications open with Boomers and prospective Boomers.

Also, according to Boti Nagy 2 months ago, "No previous Boomers coach in the history of the sport has spent as much time communicating and visiting his overseas playing contingent as Lemanis."

Did that all change over the last couple of months, though (the China tour aside)?

Well, for instance, Lemanis expects Thon Maker to chase him.

Lemanis is a joke, just happened to be at Breakers at the right time. Remember he still sucked the first two or three seasons then NZ started recruiting well for the first time in their history and it all fell into place for him. So lucky to be a three time winning coach, Stacker must be like "wtf" at his former assistant lol
