Nicki Gross is a little preoccupied. So she doesn’t dwell on the uniqueness of her new position with the Iowa Energy. “To be honest, I’m just focused on helping our team,” Gross said of her promotion to assistant coach for the NBA Development League franchise. “I don’t really take (gender) into consideration, because basketball is basketball.” The Energy and their parent club, the Memphis Grizzlies, will officially announce Gross’ move up from video coordinator on Thursday.
