Quick: Olshey Doing Agent Favor With Canales Promotion?

60
Jason Quick of The Oregonian writes that Portland Trail Blazers GM Neil Olshey may be pushing the head coaching candidacy of interim coach Kaleb Canales because the two men share an agent, Warren LeGarie. ------------------------------ This reeks of the slimy underbelly of NBA politics these days, with agent Warren LeGarie positioning both of his clients -- Olshey and Canales -- for a big payday. Other qualified candidates be damned if they aren't in position to scratch the back of a fellow LeGarie client. I really don't know whether Canales is a good coach. I can say he is energetic, enthusiastic and seems to work hard. And I remember veteran Joel Przybilla saying Canales was prepared and organized when he took over for McMillan for the final 23 games. But I also remember some pretty horrible team defense, although it's difficult to judge good or bad those 23 games because the roster had been so depleted by trades and injuries. ------------------------------ -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
