According to the Indianapolis Star, O'Neill will serve as an assistant to head coach Rick Carlisle. He is expected to sign with the team on Saturday. Toronto posted just a 33-49 record in 2003-04 and failed to qualify for the playoffs in O'Neill's first campaign with the team. He took over for Lenny Wilkens in June of 2003. O'Neill, who had one year remaining on a two-year contract, joined the Raptors after serving as an assistant coach with both the New York Knicks and the Detroit Pistons. It marked his first coaching experience in the NBA after college stints with Northwestern, Tennessee and Marquette.
