Blazers hire Terry Stotts as coach




The Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday named Mavericks assistant Terry Stotts as the team's head coach.

"I'm very pleased to be a part of a great franchise in a beautiful city with such a proud history," Stotts said in a statement released by the Blazers. "I look forward to working hard with Neil and our players toward the ultimate goal of bringing another championship to Portland."

Stotts, 54, is 114-168 in four seasons as coach of the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks. He spent the past four season as an assistant with the Mavericks.

"Terry is one of the elite offensive minds in the NBA, has extensive experience with multiple organizations and was instrumental in the Dallas Mavericks winning the 2011 NBA Championship," Blazers GM Neil Olshey said in a statement. "He understands the vision for the future of the franchise, appreciates the process involved and will create an environment on the court that will produce championship habits."

Stotts was one of two finalists for the job, along with interim Blazers coach Kaleb Canales, a source close to the situation confirmed last week.

After Stotts' initial interview, Mavericks coach Carlisle gave Stotts a ringing endorsement, telling The Oregonian, "Of all the coaches presently in play, Terry is by far the best available."

This is the dude that bearhugged Matt after that incident between Terry and Blake. :man10:

Honestly I had no idea who he was so I'm surprised to hear how everyone say he's terrible but I guess its hard to find someone that wants to coach the Blazers with how cursed that franchise is.
