Elston Turner Rumors
Dane Moore: New Timberwolves assistant coach Elston Turner on his role: “My role is defensive coordinator… To improve some things that the team wasn’t in the top-half in.” The Wolves ranked 27th in defensive rating, 27th defensive rebounding, 26th in transition defense.
Darren Wolfson: Before Chris Finch and the #Timberwolves ultimately hired Elston Turner as the No. 3 ass’t, they had a tough call between him and #Kings ass’t/player development coach Lindsey Harding. She was impressive through the process. Once upon a time, she played for the Lynx.
Darren Wolfson: Mentioned on @SkorNorth today of a #Timberwolves hiring being imminent. And here we go: Elston Turner is joining Chris Finch’s staff, I hear. Once upon a time interviewed for the Wolves’ head gig. Long-time NBA player and ass’t, has a defensive background. Nice add.
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced additions to the coaching staff, including Joe Boylan (Assistant Coach/Director of Player Development), Nate Bubes (Quality Control Coach), Chris Hines (Player Development Associate), Ashlee McGee (Video/Player Development Associate), Alex Stepheson (Video/Player Development Associate), Elston Turner (Assistant Coach) and Addison Walters (Video Associate).
Alykhan Bijani: Looks like former Sacramento Kings Head Coach David Joerger was a guest at #Rockets practice. For those wondering, both new assistant coaches Elston Turner and Dan Hartfield were with Coach Joerger on the Kings coaching staff.
