Well, he better hope there is still a vacancy after the 2019-2020 season. I don’t think your theory of self sabotage or irreconcilable differences with front office here in Sacramento will make him an attractive target for anybody. I think Joerger is happy with what he has here in Sacramento. I disagree, Minnesota likely isn’t going to tank and if they did they would likely end up in the all so familiar 8-10 purgatory anyway. They fired a coach they believed wasn’t getting the most out of their talent and has quickly become a fossil in today’s game. They’re 19-21 right in the playoff chase. They fired Thibs. They didn’t trade KAT.
Of course you don't like his comments. He was being totally candid in his answer, while making sure it's understood his focus is here. An "unequivocal denial" by Joerger would have just been fodder for those who would immediately accuse him of lying because any coach would at least think about a chance to coach his hometown NBA team.
Joerger made a very unambiguous comment. I find it refreshing.
