We all know that Juwan Howards best days are behind him. I'm sure Juwan realizes this as well and I would go as far as to say he knows the Blazers are not going to be able to re-sign him. I have heard Juwan on the radio here in Portland talking about how much he loves living here so theres no doubt he is a "Portland" guy. That being said, because of the apparent opening in Nate McMillans staff and the fact that the organization, players and fans all love him; I think the best thing to do to retain him is to offer him an assistant coaching position. Old man river has shown his ability to lead the young guys, he has a calm demeanor and he is a smart basketball mind. If Juwan is done playing and would like to get in to coaching I believe that would be a great hire for McMillans staff. Let me know what you all think.
