How Terry Stotts could steady the Pacers

With the Pacers announcing last Wednesday that the team has fired Nate Bjorkgren, the search for a new head coach begins now. According to Chris B. Haynes of Yahoo Sports, former Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts, who was rumored to be a candidate for the Pacers even before Bjorkgren was formally dismissed, is expected to get a look for the gig. Known for implementing a deliberate, pick-and-roll heavy offense geared around the limitless range of Damian Lillard, what worked as a base in Portland, where defenders routinely got caught off guard by quick threes and pulled toward the logo, obviously isn’t going to be directly applicable for the Pacers.
