Gentry said he is still looking to fill the one remaining spot on his staff. But Gentry retained Kevin Hanson and Fred Vinson, who both were assistants on former Pelicans Monty Williams’ staff. Hanson will continue working with Davis, while Vinson is expected to remain as a shooting coach to help players like swingman Tyreke Evans. Gentry hired Darren Erman as his lead assistant and New Orleans native Robert Pack earlier this month
New Orleans native Robert Pack will be joining Alvin Gentry’s staff as an assistant, league source said Tuesday afternoon. Although Pack has yet to sign a contract with the Pelicans, a source said, but a verbal agreement has been reached. Pack is expected to work with the guards. Pack graduated from Lawless in 1987 and spent two years at Tyler Junior College before playing at Southern Cal. Pack, a point guard, played in the NBA from 1991 to 2004. He played for the then-New Orleans Hornets as a backup guard during the 2002-03 season under former coach Paul Silas. He returned to the franchise as an assistant coach in 2009-10.
The Thunder has an array of video analysts, trainers and shooting instructors, but we’ll narrow it down to the five listed on their website as assistants – Rex Kalamian, Robert Pack, Mark Bryant, Mike Terpstra and Darko Rajokovic. At this point, none of the five have been relieved of duties. But Kalamian, Pack and Terpstra were very close to Scott Brooks. It’s likely they don’t return and possible they follow Brooks to another job, should he get one. All five remain candidates to stay, but two stick out as the most likely.
Where are they? A look at the whereabouts of members of the 1993-94 Nuggets: Coach Dan Issel: Working in the oil and gas industry for a Windsor company. Broadcaster for a couple of Nuggets games this season. Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf: Lives in suburban Atlanta. Gives private basketball training sessions. LaPhonso Ellis: College basketball analyst at ESPN. Tom Hammonds: Went into drag racing after 12-year NBA career. Briefly owned a car dealership in South Carolina. Now in the construction business in Florida. Reggie Williams: Resigned in September as coach of Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. Rodney Rogers: Paralyzed as a result of a dirt bike accident in 2008. Lives in North Carolina. Brian Williams (Bison Dele): Presumed dead after disappearing during a sailing trip in 2002. Robert Pack: Assistant coach with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bryant Stith: Assistant coach at Old Dominion University. Dikembe Mutombo: Humanitarian and NBA global ambassador.
The Oklahoma City Thunder has named Robert Pack and Mike Terpstra as assistant coaches, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. They join Rex Kalamian, Mark Bryant and Brian Keefe on Head Coach Scott Brooks’ bench. “We’re excited to add Robert and Mike to our coaching staff for the upcoming season,” said Head Coach Scott Brooks. “These additions bring diverse backgrounds to our group that will help the further development of our players.” Pack joins the Thunder after spending the previous three seasons as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers where he served as the head coach for the Clippers’ entry in the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Prior to that, he spent one season on the New Orleans Hornets bench.
Robert Pack, not Iavaroni, is the Del Negro assistant at the front of the interim line, but Pack’s promise and presumed ability to connect with Chris Paul after working with him in both New Orleans and L.A. doesn’t change the fact that he’s never been a head coach before. That would make it a hard handoff from Del Negro to Pack, given how much pressure the Clips are already facing to salvage something from this season, with Blake Griffin eligible for a contract extension in July and CP3 under contract only through June 2013.
Bill Simmons: As I tweeted before DS’s staff wanted to replace VDN w/ Robert Pack on Friday. DS overruled, wanted to see 1 home game before deciding. VDN is a lame duck. Players think he’s gone, so does Clippers staff. DS won’t extend him. This just drags on. 2 home W’s didn’t fix it. forgot I didn’t tweet Pack as VDN’s replacement on Saturday (just the other stuff). Pack is interim choice (not Iavaroni) if VDN goes.
