HoopsHype Tyrone Corbin rumors

November 22, 2013 Updates

Tyrone Corbin doesn't appear to be in any danger yet, since the mandate from ownership is for player development over wins and losses. (Plus, with assistant Jeff Hornacek now coaching the Suns, there isn't a logical interim replacement on the bench.) With lottery pick Trey Burke back from injury to solidify the point guard position, let's see if things get better. CBSSports.com

One coach who could have cause to be nervous is Utah’s Tyrone Corbin. The Jazz will be the last team to win a game, starting the year with five straight losses, and are dealing with inexperience all over the roster. Sure, there are injuries, but Corbin points out that there is no cavalry waiting to rescue the Jazz, and the players will have to fight the temptation to throw in the towel. “This is where we are. ... We don’t want to give up and start thinking we can’t get over the hump. We have got to continue to fight. One of the fears you have with a young group, because they haven’t been through it before, is to know how you get over the hump.” Sporting News

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said last week that Corbin, whose career record is 87-89, has "performed really well under these circumstances," but declined to comment on anything related to his contract status. Corbin’s agent, Los Angeles-based Steve Kauffman, said the sides have not begun negotiating an extension. "I don’t expect anything to be done," said Kauffman, whose other clients include Jeff Hornacek and Monty Williams. Salt Lake Tribune

Hall of Famer Jerry Sloan was introduced Thursday as a senior basketball adviser, an undefined role that allowed him to rejoin the Jazz after abruptly resigning as head coach in 2011 and paving the way for Corbin. "I wished I could have called him down to sit beside me at times," Corbin said, sitting beside his longtime mentor at the Jazz’s practice facility Thursday morning. The last time they shared the dais, Sloan’s eyes were red and he fought back tears. It was February 2011 and he announced his sudden departure from the team. Since then, he has been courted by nearly every team with a coaching vacancy. He said Thursday he always hoped that a new role with the Jazz would materialize." Salt Lake Tribune
