Charlie Bell may be retired from professional basketball but he’s still connected to the game. The Texas Legends of the NBA D-League recently announced that the former Michigan State star and NBA veteran has been hired as an assistant coach. The Legends are the minor league affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks. Bell, 37, earned the job through the NBA’s Assistant Coaches Program (ACP). More than 150 former NBA players have participated in the program since 1988. He will be working under head coach Bob MacKinnon. “I want to help guys get better. I love the game of basketball,” Bell said. “I’ve been playing it all my life so I know quite a bit about the game of basketball so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to get my foot into the coaching door.”
The NBA players will be joined by NBA Global Ambassador and Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo (Democratic Republic of the Congo); former NBA players Charlie Bell (U.S.), Jason Collins (U.S.), Olumide Oyedeji (Nigeria); and former WNBA players Astou Ndiaye-Diatta (Senegal) and Jenn Lacy (U.S.). “We are pleased to partner with FIBA to bring the 14th edition of Basketball without Borders Africa to Angola for the first time,” said NBA Vice President and Managing Director for Africa, Amadou Gallo Fall. “Africa’s growing basketball ecosystem led to a record 10 African players on NBA rosters at the start of last season and five African players selected in the 2016 NBA Draft. This year’s camp will once again provide young players from across the continent with the tools to succeed on the court and in life.”
