Thoughts from the more knowledgable guys?

My concerns are:

ability to develop
Get most from roster
Build for future.

From what I read is that he is a strong defensive minded guy. He plans on bringing Patrick Ewing with him to be his assistant. So we will see what happens.

Seems like he's paid his dues at the pro level; unlike Dunlap.

On the surface, I believe hiring a defensive minded coach, with solid NBA experience, is a good move for the organization...  I believe this plays well to what the team does best...  That said, he will be measured more on how he develops young talent, over how well the team plays defensively...

Don't love the move but thank God it wasn't Sampson or Snyder.

Rick Bonnell ‏@rick_bonnell

Jeff Van Gundy on Steve Clifford: "This guy has It. When he gets his opportunity, he'll knock it out of the park."

 

More JVG: "Steve Clifford is a no-brainer, just like (Tom Thibodeau) was."

@WojYahooNBA already mentioned this, but based on Clifford's (and Jordan's) relationship with Patrick Ewing, I could see him on staff.

High praise from Van Gundy and landing Ewing would be huge.  Hopefully it works out.
