Raptors Consider JJ Redick As Potential Head Coach Candidate
The Toronto Raptors have looked into the possibility of JJ Redick for their head coaching vacancy, a source has told Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca.
Redick has a fledging career in broadcasting after his retirement in 2021.
Redick has spoken openly about possibly coaching in the future.
Steve Nash, Derek Fisher, Jason Kidd, Mark Jackson, Isiah Thomas and Steve Kerr are among some of the former players who became head coach in the NBA without any prior experience as an assistant coach or as a college head coach.
The Raptors have been linked with a number of current assistant such as Charles Lee, Sam Cassell, Kenny Atkinson, Jordi Fernandez, Adrian Griffin and David Adelman. Other candidates include Becky Hammon, Jerry Stackhouse and Patrick Mutombo.
