“We always said when he was here, we always thought Quinny would be a coach,” guard Dwyane Wader said, “somebody who would work around the game, maybe even be in management one day.”
From the unpredictable roads of Moscow to the capricious streets of Miami, Quinn has navigated himself back to a place that felt like home from the moment he joined the Heat in the 2006 offseason after going undrafted out of Notre Dame that year. “We’ve always kept in touch,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who was an assistant for the start of Quinn’s playing tenure with the Heat. “And when I coached Chris, I always thought he would eventually make a good coach one day. I viewed him as a coach on the floor, somebody I really respect to get every ounce out of his ability to end up playing almost seven years in this league. “And we kept in touch over the years. In fact, this past year, when we were in Chicago, we got together for dinner and I told him then that, ‘Hey, one of these days if this is truly what you want to do, let’s continue to talk. Down the line I may be coming after you.’ And it happened a little bit sooner than we even thought about back then.”
The Miami HEAT announced today several front office hirings, including Keith Smart as Assistant Coach, Chris Quinn as Assistant Coach/Player Development, Brandon Gilliam as Assistant Trainer/Director of Rehabilitation, Wes Brown as Assistant Trainer and Eric Foran as Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach.
Northwestern hired former NBA player Chris Quinn, a Dublin Coffman graduate, as director of player development. Quinn, who played collegiately at Notre Dame, joins the staff of new coach Chris Collins after a six-year run in the NBA and overseas stops in Russia and Spain.
Jason Lloyd: As I said last night, the release of Chris Quinn right now is good timing for him. He’ll probably wind up back overseas.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have waived forward Kevin Jones and guard Chris Quinn, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Jones played in 32 games this past season for the Cavs, averaging 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game. Quinn played in seven games for the Cavs, averaging 1.4 points and 1.3 assists in 11.3 minutes per game.
Jason Lloyd: #Cavs have decision to make on Chris Quinn. Not likely to make team & teams overseas showing interest. Could cut him soon to do him a favor
Former Syracuse star Scoop Jardine has been practicing with the Cavaliers summer league team in Las Vegas, but Cavs say no decision has been made as to whether he’ll be added to their roster. The Cavs, who are short-handed because Kevin Jones and Chris Quinn have concussions, don’t play again until Thursday
With this all in mind, it’s no surprise that the organization is reportedly set to bring 66ers’ guard Tony Taylor Jr. aboard its Summer League team this coming July. OKC clearly appreciates promising young talent, and Taylor undoubtedly did what he could all season long to prove he was just that. After starting the season off strongly, the GWU alum took a back seat to NBA veteran Chris Quinn, who was brought in by the team midseason.
Ira Winderman: The Cavaliers have added ex-Heat guard Chris Quinn from the D-League. Byron Scott,. “He’s very steady.He just knows how to play.”
Priority Sports: Congrats to @ChrisQuinn11 on signing with the Cleveland @cavs! #Perseverance #AllForOne
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Chris Quinn from the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League for the remainder of the season, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. The signing of Quinn marks the 28th GATORADE Call-Up of the 2012-13 season. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not announced. Quinn will wear No. 20 for the Cavaliers and be active for tonight’s game against the Miami Heat at Quicken Loans Arena. In 25 games (23 starts) this season for the 66ers, Quinn has averaged 12.7 points on .475 shooting, 2.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.3 steals in 32.4 minutes per game.
The injury bug has bitten the Cleveland Cavaliers hard as of late. Already without Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao, the Cavs recently learned that Dion Waiters will sit out a week to nurse a sore knee. The guard may end up needing surgery. Unable to find a way to quite stop the bleeding just yet, a source tells RidiculousUpside.com that Cleveland will turn to the NBA D-League for a bandaid of sorts. The source says the Cavaliers will bring aboard NBA veteran and current Tulsa 66ers guard Chris Quinn, who was not seen in uniform on Tuesday night when his team took on the number one seeded Bakersfield Jam. A five year veteran of three NBA teams, Quinn last appeared in The Association during the 2010-11 season with San Antonio. He was also one of final cuts during training camp last fall with the Utah Jazz.
Matt Moore: Tulsa 66ers acquire Chris Quinn, who you may remember from the Heat team that helped them land Michael Beasley.
Chris Quinn will leave Valencia when his one-month contract with the Spanish team will expire, Solobasket reports. The American guard with NBA experience was averaging 9ppg, 2rpg and 2apg in ACB.
Chris Quinn is officially a new player of Valencia. The American guard returns to Europe after a season in Russia with Khimki where he won Eurocup title.
So, for now, Quinn is back in his offseason home of Columbus, Ohio, doing drills and cardio work with a trainer to try to simulate NBA shape. But nothing can substitute for going up and down the floor, again and again, day after day. Quinn’s agent, Mark Bartlestein, works the phones to Europe and basketball leagues around the world and in the States. “He’s an NBA player, no question about it,” Bartlestein said. “He proved it this preseason. If the right opportunity came over in Europe, he’d take a look at it.”
Bill Oram: As reported elsewhere, and as expected, the Jazz waived Darnell Jackson and Chris Quinn tonight. Roster is now at 15, including Raja Bell.
The Jazz officially announced Wednesday forwards Trey Gilder and Darnell Jackson, center Brian Butch and guard Chris Quinn have been added to the team’s 2012-12 training camp roster.
Former Spurs guard Chris Quinn is among 23 NBA players who did not have opt-out clauses that would enable them to return to the United States from overseas when the lockout ended. Quinn, who made $875,000 while playing with the Spurs, signed with the Moscow-based team Khimki in late July.
Point guard Chris Quinn, who spent last season with the San Antonio Spurs, has signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Russian League team, Kinki, based in Moscow, according to his agent. Quinn’s contract does not have a clause that would allow him to return to play in the NBA next season should the current lockout end.
As reported by sources close to the situation, Chris Quinn will play for Khimki Moscow next season. Former Notre Dame point guard spent last season in the NBA with San Antonio Spurs averaging 2.1ppg in 38 games played.
BC Khimki Moscow Region brought a familiar face back and announced a new player with the signing of Timofey Mozgov and Chris Quinn on Thursday. Mozgov (2.16 meters, 25 years old) played four seasons with the club from 2006 through 2010.
From afar, Quinn is hopeful his former team will hang with his former coach. “I think more than anything, ever since the Big Three went there, everything got magnified a lot – wins, losses, everything,” Quinn said. “Obviously they have a lot of talent, successful guys who have been in the league a long time. I think they’ll be fine in the long run.”
Spurs guard Chris Quinn isn’t sure who is to blame for the Miami Heat’s sluggish start. He just knows it isn’t all on coach Erik Spoelstra. Quinn, who spent the first three seasons of his career with Miami from 2006-09, considers himself “a Spoelstra fan.” “He works extremely hard. He’s dedicated to the game,” Quinn said. “He knows his Xs and Os.”
