Alvin Williams Could Join The Raptors

I’m not crazy about Jay Triano as a head coach anywhere. However, if Triano hires Alvin Williams as an assistant coach it would be a near genius move.

“Alvin Williams played an integral part in the greatest success the Raptors have known and he wants the chance to help return the franchise to that level. The iconic point guard – whose clutch deciding-game jumpshot clinched the only playoff series Toronto has ever won, a five-game set against the New York Knicks in 2000 – is in line to join Jay Triano’s staff as an assistant coach for skills development, bridging the Raptors’ past and future. “It’s just a great opportunity,” the 34-year-old Williams said in a telephone interview yesterday. “I just feel like I’ve been away from the game so long and I want to get back involved in NBA basketball.” 

It’s really too bad Williams’ body broke down on him to early in his career, but with his basketball IQ he should have a job on an NBA coaching staff. Lets hope he gets hired.
