Rick Adelman Rumors
Though the list of NBA coaching vacancies grows by the day, plenty of former head coaches, current assistants and established college coaches are available. Divac, who sought advice from former Kings coach Rick Adelman during the Sleep Train finale, also plans to seek recommendations from mentors Gregg Popovich and Jerry West. “Definitely a long process,” Divac predicted. “It’s a very important decision for us. We have to take the time and talk to as many people we can.”
Former Trail Blazers coach Rick Adelman remembered Jerome Kersey as a gifted athlete who made himself a solid NBA player through hard work. “He had the athletic skills; he could run, he could jump, and he was strong. Every camp he came to — I told him one time, ‘Are you trying to be a linebacker or are you trying to be a basketball player?’ He always came in and worked his tail off,” Adelman said.
