I think Jones will be considered, but there is something to be said about a totally fresh perspective. Good thoughts, as usual, Clint.

Then again, other coaches may tap him to be a lead assistant. Bottom line is he’ll have options.

Give him several more seasons as an assistant, then maybe. Also, I think it would be wise to move in a truly new direction, something completely outside the Layton/Sloan lineage. I think there are better candidates myself, including Alex Jensen, though I don’t quite think he’s ready for a head position either.

Ever since I heard Messina was an option, I wanted him instead because of the international recognition with him as a Jazz coach. But I don’t think he will be our coach. So Brad Jones is the man for the job. We always give the job to in house assistants, so it is only befitting Jones gets it, because Sanders and Lowe were only here because of Corbin, and all 3 should be long gone by now.
