Crazy idea but would you like a system where coaches could be traded for players, draft picks or other coaches? It is not totally without any precedent. When Mike Keenan left the NY Rangers the NHL handed out a punishment that included the compensation trade of Esa Tikkanan for Petr Nedved

I did not hear about this. Was it coach for coach? Coach for player? Coach for picks? Or coach for cash?

Coaches can be traded.

Can you really? I know that in baseball you can trade managers but I'm pretty sure you can't trade coaches.

coach for player


That is pretty cool. I did not know that. I can see the positives and the negatives in allowing coaches or managers to be traded.

As a Sacramento King, I would LOVE this idea. Won't happen though either way.

Miami traded Stan Van Gundy to Orlando for a 2nd round pick a few years back. This was after Van Gundy "retired for family reasons", but was still under contract with Miami.

You can already trade coaches but it doesn't happen very often.

I totally forgot most of those examples so you guys showed me something. The only thing that would be different is that in those scenarios the coaches were choosing to move. What about trading a coach in the off season in the same manner as players are traded (not the coaches idea)? Would that be possible?
