View Full Version : Raptors Hire New Assistant- Gord Herbert

I will try and flesh this out for tomorrow's paper but real quickly: The Raptors have hired another Canadian assistant coach. His name is Gord Herbert. A former national team member who has been the most successful Canadian ever to coach in Europe, Herbert will be an assistant coach in charge of basketball development with a special focus on developing the likes of Bargnani, Ukic, Jawai et al. Makes sense.

I like the move. It is good to have a guy focusing on our young guns, and although he isn't necessarily a big man coach, it should help Bargs to have a guy watching his back.

Sounds good. Hopefully he can help our players.
