Don't get it twisted - Jennings and Ellis are the root of all problems Bucks. Not because they are bad players, but because they are being asked to do too much. They aren't the top two guys on a really good team. They are a the top two guys on a pretty average team. And that's what's happening.
Hammond announced today that Boylan is the coach for the rest of the season. Skiles was grateful in the release the team sent out for the opportunities he's had.
Also coming out that Hammond is working on an extension with Kohl. Everything is happening all at once.
You hit the nail on the head. Jennings and Ellis are very likable players, and their effort, for the most part, is unquestionable. But neither of them are guys that can lead a team on a nightly basis, and they're also not a very good combination on the court as a whole.
Keeping Boylan for the rest of the season makes sense, like Patti alluded to. Getting a new coach mid-season is hard on a team, given that they'll need to learn a whole new system. Furthermore, there's no way Kohl is paying for a new coach right now.
Skiles, unfortunately (and I'm guilty of this as well) was kind of the scapegoat for all the Bucks' failures. I did question his rotations quite often, and even now I'm kind of perplexed at the notion of him wanting to be a rebuilding team and develop young players, yet he consistently sat the likes of Henson, Harris etc. Still, he was the best coach we've had in quite a while, so thanks for everything you've done, Skiles, and I hope you have better luck with whatever team you coach in the future.
