Jay Triano to Step Away from Canadian National Team

Good news for Andrew Wiggins it seems.

Former Toronto Raptors Head Coach is stepping away from Canada’s Senior Men’s National Team. The 60-year old has a 27-5 record with the national team over the past four summers.

“I can’t thank Jay enough for all he has done for basketball in Canada,” said Glen Grunwald, President & CEO. “As both a coach and player, Jay is a Canadian icon and has played a major role in the development of basketball within our country and we will forever be grateful for his contributions. After speaking with Jay, I’m hopeful we can find a role where he can continue to contribute to Canada Basketball in the future.”

Triano cited “personal reason” as to why he opted to move on from the team.

There has yet to be a replacement named, but the decision will ultimately fall on the lap of Rowan Barrett, the father of Duke University phenom RJ Barrett, who was recently promoted to general manager. Roy Rana, Gord Herbert, and Etorre Messina are three candidates vying for the job.

Rana most recently guided the Canadians to U-19 World Cup gold.
