Sam Mitchell Doing Color For Raptors Tonight
I don't want to say 100% that this hadn't happened since he came on board but I am 99.9% sure that it hasn't.

Can he do that? Accepting a check from a network to do color on a nba game while being a college assistant? I dont know much about that subject.

I don't see why not. He's not an "amateur athlete". He's a professional coach.

True but I dont remember seeing a college coach doing commentary for a nba game. I could be having a brain fart tho. Getting over the flu and a few beers. So theres that.

Yeah, I remember some doing studio stuff or pregame stuff....but as far as calling the game, not sure.

Yeah I don't see any issues with it...

I would assume this was the understanding when he got the job...That he would not be required to do the normal grind of being a college assistant but he would be leaned on for his knowledge of the game.

Our own football HC did commentary for the CFP semifinal last season between Notre Dame and Clemson.

A NCAA coach doing a NCAA sanctioned game. Not the same.

Maybe. But I'm assuming it's the Raptors radio broadcast. So only recruits in the Toronto market might pick up on it. But im sure most would be watching the TNT broadcast.

The main point is that I am almost sure he hasn't been on since we hired him. I don't know if it does or doesn't mean anything.

Also, I might have missed the beginning, but I would think if it was his first time back they would have mentioned Memphis, but I don't think they did at all. Again, not trying to imply anything, but it just seems weird.

It seems obvious that he has been cut loose. Jason and John have been hinting at it all week.

I’m thinking he may no longer be with Memphis. As MGR stated. Jason and John have been hinting that Mitchell is no longer at Memphis for a week now.
