Brendan Suhr Rumors

While talking to folks for Sunday’s column about rookie Hassan Whiteside, I learned that longtime NBA scout/assistant Brendan Suhr has taken over basketball operations at Central Florida University. (Whiteside’s former coaches at Marshall relocated to Central Florida at the end of the 2009 -10 season). What makes this interesting is that Suhr, who spent almost a decade on Mike Fratello’s staff in Atlanta before joining Chuck Daly in Detroit, was the lead assistant on the Pistons’ 1989-90 Championship teams …. headed by Isiah Thomas. All of which means Suhr will be recruiting against his former superstar, currently the head coach at Florida International.
