Latest on 36ers head coach, global search

https://www.foxsports.com.au/basketball

I wonder whether Goorjian is in the mix, considering he has coached in Asia?

I actually believe the 36ers on this one.

I think you will find they are searching far and wide.

Most coaches around the world will know about the NBL now because I'm sure more than a few were curious to see how Lamelo Ball went.

Since when is "global search" a good thing when it comes to NBL???

What they're basically saying is that they won't pay for any of the existing well-qualified coaches. Instead they hoping to find somebody, with a sellable resume, who is tired of being shot at, and is prepared to come for peanuts.

With a bit of luck, they'll land another Billy Beaver, and if they have $5M to spend on players they can also fail to win a championship.

Top flight unemployed coaches are turning down the opportunity because they want nothing to do with the admin or the owner.

The coaches club is small and reliable

What continues to go on in Adelaide is a joke. No self respecting coach wants any part of the sideshow and drama.

- The only names mentioned as being considered are Caporn and Brooks.

- Smyth was told quickly early on in the process thanks but no thanks.

- Aaron Fearne hasn't been spoken to nor expressed interest in the job.

- Both Drmic & Froling have been given early permission to speak to other teams. The team are already looking at candidates to replace Froling.

Oh well glad to hear Fearne isn't being considered and Froling won't be re-signed.

Agreed they're spinning like tops at the moment. How is JVG saying that the pick of the coach will essentially be an executive appointment by the owner? He's already distancing himself from the selection. The Froling back and forth BS too.

Clearly they've been dropping names like Gaze & Smyth (and Fearne being mentioned to Boti) to make it appear as though everyone and their dog wants the gig which is why the two in consideration are Caporn & Brooks two guys desperate for a HC job they will even put up with a meddling owner. Now they're having to look at guys from overseas.

Also doesn't sound great that a HC might not be named until 2-3 weeks into free agency, I'm sure any coach worth their salt would love hearing that being handed a roster of players already chosen for them.

Humphries and Adel are G league reserves, they don't play. JVG in charge now so I’m not surprised. Adel is a poor version of Noi and Kelly could not find a lot minutes for him in Cairns.
Imports and quality Australians coming home could be good if the virus takes a lot longer to go as the European market could be down. On the flip side imports get paid in US dollars and the Australian dollar is so low you need double to get them here.

If it's Caporn I wonder what his staff will look like. Will they continue the clean out and KB on his bike or keep him as a bit of continuity. Or keep Golley that spoke out on behalf of players.
Or does he go with young staff of his choosing or experienced ex coach.
Would like to see if we could get a CJ or someone else that's been assistant for a while and has experience of different systems. But as a rookie head may have some job security issues.

Not sure CJ Massingham right direction. With KB have vast experience and succession plan. So double barrel benefits caporn hopefully can attract young Aust and dev. Need to retain some experience but squad looks too mature with white dillion treys.
Why does drmic want out. Opportunity to establish himself in starting 5. Approaching his peak and new coach should give him the confidence he seem to seeking and not receiving. Expectstions were too high. Keen for new generalional sixers to emerge.

Why is KB seen as succession plan, been there how long, if he was viewed as that then he would have gotten job. Don't think he'll do a Cooks at Illawarra and stay there no matter what. Keep Teys, the other 2 only been there this season and did stuff all. Plus it could attract Motum, played here before, mates with Teys and probably wants out of Europe now with young family and situation over there.
Drmic was one of Joey's guys, smart thing would be to stay, doubt there's better opportunities elsewhere. Let Froling go, will be out of league soon or 3rd big in rotation somewhere.

You can compare Clarke and Caporn. In fact in Clarke's era it was easier to turn a team around as there wasn't such a big discrepancy in talent between teams. No better evidence of that than the last to grand final turn-around under Joey the very next season with the only real change being Gary Ervin.

Caporn has done nothing. Got a gig at St Mary's as a AC, then a plum COE role. When you talk to him he almost seems self aware of how inexperienced he is.

Why do we pick up another L plate coach. I love the fact that Grant has bought the team and pumped money into it but man does he have no idea in terms of basketball operations.

Maybe we have to think of the other way. Who would want to coach Sixers at the moment. No real young talent to build with, aging DJ, one of the biggest scandals ever with Joey (that has only gone quiet because of Corona), unknown future for league, weak Aussie dollar so overseas free agents are taking huge pay cut.
Overseas coaches would be ruled out. Who else is left, not much. So biggest name is really Caporn, no-one else is stupid enough which in itself could be a worry though.
On reflection I'm going to give him a go. Marty Clarke was just a really shit coach. Our first year we should stuggle, second aim for playoffs, third be in contention. If we're really bad after year 2 then it was failed experiment.

And it wasn't until Creek's seventh year that they got any real return on their investment.

Creek is an excellent athlete but had far too many limitations to be considered a good investment. NBL teams can't afford to spend six years developing a player.

Giddy is seemingly a PR stunt, maybe to deflect from the club's other shortcomings?

Caporn will need some experienced / veteran guys on court and they will need to be ready to support a rookie coach.

It will be fascinating to see it unfold.

DJ is not a winner and Teys' behaviour seems to too much reflect his former coach. Move them both on.

Dillon and White - surely not another year.

Opportunity for Caporn to build his team.

"Te rangi was a waste at Brisbane,"

Agreed, but only this last season. And that was more of a recruitment issue rather than Te Rangi under-performing. With Singler & Braun in the team, hard for him to get mins. Wasn't he best 6th man last year? Reckon he'd actually be a very good prospect as he'd want to re-establish his value in the league and, with another year to seal his spot for Tokyo, with the Tall Blacks, too.

964, short of the international crisis, there's a lot I disagree with your post, or is just wrong.

1. Joey's tenure coincided with Creek's prime. That doesn't mean Joey was personally responsible for that improvement. The fact that young players have improved under him is as much a sign of natural mental and physical maturity as anything Joey might have done.

2. The anti-Caporn sentiment is that he's an underwhelming choice. He hasn't coached for very long, hasn't accomplished much, and hasn't left a lasting impression like, say, Seebohm did on the women's side of international competition, or experienced coaches have.

3. Regarding a list: we don't know who applied. Most journalists have gotten it wrong so far e.g. Boti with Fearne. NBL assistants (McCains, Forde etc.) have more of a claim, except for having a relationship with Giddey. I'd be disappointed to learn if the 36ers' worldwide search didn't include reaching out to those kind of candidates.

4. How was Smythe told to piss off when the 36ers approached him, and Smythe turned down potential opportunities?

Of course Forde is going to publicly say Caporn is going to do a good job.

There's a lot of people who will say that Caporn is going to do a good job, but privately are shaking their heads in disbelief at the 36ers choice.

To be clear I'm not suggesting those are Forde's private views, I can't speak for him.

I hope Caporn is a success for the sake of the club, but there is nothing in Caporn's coaching history that suggests he will be, nothing at all.

1) Chicken or the egg. Did Joey push Creek into the player he's become or did Creek do it all by himself. Pretty sure Creek has credited Wright a lot with his development.
2) Good example with Seebohm numbnuts, any idea of how he became head coach in WNBL and coach of the year in his rookie campaign? Less experience than Caporn.
3)Of course we don't know who applied, you're the one telling the story of how many great coaches are out there.
4)You interview then immediately pull name out of hat, out of courtesy you get the interview but when you get told you're not getting it then you quit to save face, pretty simple for a reasonable person to surmise.

991,

1. Creek has credited Joey, correct. Having seen how he coaches and how hard Creek has pushed himself though I don't buy it. To be fair, Joey definitely allowed Creek to thrive as they had a good relationship, but that doesn't mean he's the cause of Creek's improvement. I'm confident another coach could have achieved the same result, if not better because Creek has always had the determination to be elite.

2. Resorting to name-calling because you can't put forth a cohesive argument? Nice.

Seebohm was well-respected coach before he won a junior gold medal and drew praise from the entire basketball community. Then he was given a WNBL head coaching gig. That seems like a logical progression based on tangible accomplishments, rather than just assistant roles that seem to be at least somewhat the result of connections in the case of Caporn.

Experience doesn't mean shit if you coach to a worse capacity than other candidates. I don't have an opinion of him, but Stacker has his name thrown around a bit, and his vast experience doesn't mean much to most.

3. I'm not the same anon from earlier in the thread saying there were heaps of coaches out there better than Caporn... I'm just pointing out that there are highly competent coaches in Australia that, if interested, potentially have a better claim to the role. I also gave you two examples of coaches I've been impressed by, so I don't get what your point is here.

4. Do you have any inside knowledge of this or are you implying this is how it went down? Because I've been told differently by people close to the situation. I also don't get why Smythe would need to 'save face'. Smythe doesn't need the job: he makes a very cushy living by doing public speaking gigs, and not being successful for the position really isn't an indictment on him - just a reflection of the other candidates.

Smyth told them from Day 1 he wasn't interested and went as far as contacting media outlets to tell them to stop using his name, or so the story goes

This is the same guy that also turned down the director of basketball job with the 36ers according to some people.

Brunson, I said I'm trying to put the pieces together but I think there was/will be 1 Aussie boomer signing. Having a guess I'm thinking either a PG or SG/SF.

Again they're not going to go into the season without a C, so you'd assume a centre will be signed and better than Froling if not you'd keep him . With Caporn apparently the new coach and with his relationship with Humphries maybe an option.

I'm with Isaac and thinking the team was highly paid. JVG said the same. Does 400k (Griffin money) get you Delly/Broekoff/Motum etc.

I may be way off but,
Import Pg
Broekoff
Import SF or Adel
DJ
Humphries

Why even guess. Let's hope the new coach picks the side. Not like JVG did with the Kings.

Griffin wasn't on 400k. Ask his agent.

If you think 400k gets you Griffin how do you think that gets you the names you mentioned that are NBA fringe or entrenched.

36ers already have White, Mudronja , Dillon , Teys and Giddey committed to contracts so another PG isn't going to happen without 2 of those being paid out.

Depends if you think White was being told what to do by his boss or not
