Jordi Fernandez Rumors

Jordi Fernandez has received his NBA call-up. The Canton Charge head coach has agreed to take an assistant coaching job with the Denver Nuggets, a Charge team source confirmed Tuesday to the Canton Repository. The Denver Post first reported Fernandez’s hiring. Mike Malone is the head coach for the Nuggets and Fernandez worked with Malone on the Cavaliers staff during the 2009-10 season. Malone was a Cavs assistant from 2005-10.
Fernandez, 31, spent last season as an assistant coach with the Charge on Steve Hetzel’s staff. Before joining the Charge, he served as a player development coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2009-13. In both prior roles, Fernandez’s responsibilities included conducting individual skill workouts with players, assisting with practice and game preparation, and forming international scouting reports. “The Cavaliers and Charge are the model relationship for NBA D-League as far as the right balance between developing individual talent and attaining collective team success, and I am very thankful that they have given me this opportunity,” said Fernandez. “Canton has been like a second home to me since I arrived last year and I cannot wait to get started with a team that Charge fans can be proud to get behind.”
