Coach Terry Stotts handled the team pretty adroitly last year. He is very innovative offensively. A lot of what they ran in Dallas [where Stotts served as an assistant coach for four years before being named Blazers coach in 2012] were things that he designed. Players enjoy playing for him. He has a really positive demeanor, and he's learned from his previous head-coaching stints [with the Hawks and Bucks]. Stotts can grow with this team if the Blazers keep adding pieces.
