David Blatt considering NBA offers?

http://sports.walla.co.il/?w=/151/2652544

Translation of the Subtext:

"Israeli seriously considering offers from the NBA, including Brooklyn, assistant Jason Kidd. The Blatt respond within ten days, may inform about leaving before the end of next week"

I know its primarily for the role of an assistant, but Blatt has been a higher level coach in the Euroleague scene for a few years. He's one something like 6 domestic league championships in the last 12 years. One of the more successful Euro-based American Coaches.

Thoughs?

I only

really remember him from the Olympics, but I thought that he did a great job with that Russian squad.

I would like to see it happen at some point, if it is the right situation for him.

Good coach. Really tough,

Good coach. Really tough, excellent X's and O's, but really gets on his players. I'm not sure how his style would fly as a newcomer to the league. Coaches have much more clout and influence on the game over there than in the NBA. Accepting an ast position is a downgrade for him. If guys who have no head coaching experience anywhere can get head coaching jobs, Blatt should at least get interviewed for a head job somewhere if he's really that interested in going to the NBA.

Very overrated coach. His style of basketball is simplistic and outdated.
