David Joerger, currently an assistant coach under Lionel Hollins with the Memphis Grizzlies, is considered one of the top candidates for head coaching jobs in the future. Joerger's assent to the NBA began in the IBA, CBA and D-League. “He loves the craft,” said one NBA general manager. “Look what he’s done with [the Memphis] defense. He’s got Thibodeau’s thing for defense, but he’s a lot more likable than Thibs.”  Joerger is known for having a great understanding of what each player on a roster can and cannot do, maximizing their strengths.
