Steve Nash is adding D’Antoni, Ike Udoka, and Amare Stoudemire to his assistant staff. Definitely gonna be the new Suns there.

Jacque Vaughan staying on staff as lead assistant, too. It’s a stacked bench for them.

Dan Burke might be the most likable guy on the 76ers coaching staff.

Interesting about Foster. But more interesting to me is further down the twitter page when they show Alize giving his Mom a new home! Good going young man!

Yeah. He’s made a “big purchase” every year of his pro career. His first year, he bought his mom a car. His second year, he “bought” a new playground and basketball setup for the neighborhood park where he grew up, and this year was a house for the family. He definitely seems like a good guy. Bought his mom a house before he bought one for himself.

Cornrows doesn't mention it, but Greg Foster had a cup of coffee on the Pacers per Twitter.

I hope he has a long term future with the team

Wow. Bayno may stick around, but not as an actual assistant on the bench.

More recent tweets have him on bench. All speculation of course.

O'Brien was the only coach I ever interacted with socially. a business partner of my ex was his neighbor and helped him get some services for a child and so I met him at parties at her house and once sat next to him at a charitable event and talked basketball. I can't say I talked him into trying any of my ideas.

You should have tried harder. :D

That’s just awesome. In especially excited that we’re spending a little extra and going with 4 assistants, instead of the usual 3.
