Quin Snyder Rumors
Jazz coach Quin Snyder is pushing for the deal, according to the source, because the 6-foot-6 Temple would give the team a big defensive presence in Exum’s absence.
Snyder and Temple established a good relationship when the guard was with the San Antonio Spurs at the end of the 2009-10 season. Snyder was the coach of the Spurs’ D-League affiliate, the Austin Toros, at the time.
Kenny Atkinson pushed me to take my game to another level. Darvin Ham shared the tricks he picked up during his long NBA career to help me develop my skills around the basket. And then there was Quin Snyder, who was the first coach who took me under his wing while he was an assistant here. The big difference between regular NBA players and superstars isn’t just talent, but the way they train. Quin and I just kind of clicked right away when I came to the Hawks, and he began working with me to develop skills that I hadn’t really touched before. His belief in me built up my confidence so much.
