Bob Beyer Rumors
Hardaway — who will join Brendan Malone, Bob Beyer, Charles Klask and former Heat forward Malik Allen on Van Gundy’s staff — said a coaching job on Erik Spoelstra’s staff wasn’t realistic because “there are guys before me here and I didn’t want to take anything from them.” The Heat acquired Hardaway and Chris Gatling from Golden State, for Kevin Willis and Bimbo Coles, in a midseason trade in 1995-96, and Hardaway and Mourning — over the next 5 ½ seasons — led the Heat to its most success as a franchise up to that point, though kidney disease sidelined Mourning for most of Hardaway’s final season with the team.
The team said Malone and two more assistants, Bob Beyer and Charles Klask, are joining Stan Van Gundy’s staff. Malone was an assistant on Van Gundy’s staff at the Orlando Magic, from 2007-12. He also was a Pistons assistant coach in 1989-90 when Detroit won consecutive NBA championships under Chuck Daly.
The Saratoga Springs Police Department says Charlotte Bobcats assistant coach Bob Beyer was charged with resisting arrest Thursday night following an altercation with bouncers at Gaffney’s bar. The 51-year-old Beyer was also charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct. All the charges are misdemeanors.
