Is he the right man for the job? Yes, in one very specific way. Were better coaches realistically available? How will Miami follow up their trade for Terry Rozier? We discuss what Miami’s main weakness is post-trade, and whether it would be realistic to get out of the tax. Atlanta is perhaps the most active team in trade rumors. What should they be looking for in a trade for Dejounte Murray, and what other players could be on the move with yet another tax crunch looming next season? The Hornets have moved into sell mode, and they do have some solid players to send out in return for questionable salary.

Plus, what the opportunity cost is, and how the Pacers set themselves up to absorb such a big salary.
