Could George Karl be coming to Toronto? There is actually a high possibility.
On Wednesday Karl announced his resignation with the Denver Nuggets, and it is only natural to think he could be on the sidelines with the Raptors next season.
Ok. Dwane Casey is still the Raptors coach. But wih Karl, Lionel Hollins and Vinny Del Negro on the market, it is ridiculous for one to think that Casey is in the same calibre of coaches as those three mentioned.
Karl is the reigning coach of the year in the NBA. He did remarkable things with little to work with in Denver. He has made the playoffs only once since 1992, and has an outstanding regular season record of 1131-756. Oh yes. And he has close ties to the Raptors GM Masai Ujuri who was the NBA Executive of the Year last year in Denver.
It is simply Ujuri’s time to shine. He needs to fire Casey this week and go after Karl!
