Arizona State Rumors

Arizona State men’s basketball coach Herb Sendek hired two assistants with NBA experience Tuesday. Eric Musselman has had two NBA head-coaching stints — with the Golden State Warriors from 2002-04 and the Sacramento Kings in 2006-07 — and Larry Greer was an assistant with the Portland Trail Blazers last season. “In talking to several people it was clear to me Larry and Eric were great additions to the Sun Devil family because of unique backgrounds and a passion for the game,” Sendek said in a statement. “I love the fact Eric has coached at so many levels, including leagues where guys are trying to make the next step. Larry comes highly recommended by several people in the basketball world that I have a lot of faith in and are good friends with. Together with coach Dedrique Taylor I am really looking forward to our future as we bring the experience of the NBA game to our program.”
