Joe Wolf Rumors
Spearheading Sheboygan’s mission to garner the Bucks’ D-League is Joe Wolf, who is considered by some the greatest high school basketball player ever in Wisconsin. Wolf played in the NBA, including one season with the Bucks, and later was an assistant coach for the team. He is also familiar with the D-League, having been the head coach of the Idaho Stampede and Colorado 14ers. “No news,’’ Wolf said Tuesday about whether Bucks officials had contacted him about the D-League situation. And Dickert said on Tuesday night, “We haven’t heard anything from them (the Bucks).’’
Bucks president Peter Feigin said five cities from Wisconsin have submitted bids to become the home of the team’s new D-League team. They are Racine, Sheboygan, Green Bay, Oshkosh and La Crosse. The Sheboygan contingent is being spearheaded by Kohler native and former NBA player Joe Wolf. Feigin said the Bucks expect to select a city “in the next six to eight weeks.’’ The Bucks plan to have a team in place for the 2017-2018 season.
The Brooklyn Nets have named Paul Westphal, John Welch, Tony Brown, Joe Wolf and Jay Humphries as assistant coaches and Jim Sann as an assistant coach/advance scout on new head coach Lionel Hollins’ staff, General Manager Billy King announced today.
