Erik Spoelstra Rumors
Baylor big man Jonathan Motley was star struck when the Miami Heat contingent walked into the room for his interview this week at the NBA Draft Combine. “I just was really honored that I felt important enough to have Pat Riley and (Erik) Spoelstra in the room,” said the 6-foot-10 Motley, who expects to set up a private workout in Miami.
Popovich called D’Antoni and Spoelstra “great choices, well deserved in both cases.” “We all got to vote on it, so it is coming from we coaches, and we are more intimately involved in this than anybody else,” Popovich said. “For those two to share it, is fantastic because of the jobs they did with their teams. It’s as simple as that.”
