Quick: Assistants Dean Demopoulos And Joe Prunty "Will Not Be Retained"

92
Jason Quick of The Oregonian writes that there will indeed be big-time turnover on Nate McMillan's coaching staff this offseason. -------------------------- Sources say lead assistant Dean Demopoulos and assistant Joe Prunty will not be retained, which comes after assistant Monty Williams left the team to become the head coach of New Orleans. McMillan on Sunday said he is "looking to make changes" with his staff but refused to say which coaches will be replaced. When asked if Demopoulos and Prunty were given two weeks notice earlier this month, McMillan was short. "I don’t want to go into that,’’ McMillan said. -------------------------- After Nate McMillan previously denied to Joe Freeman that Bernie Bickerstaff had been added to his staff, Quick writes that both Bickerstaff and his son, John-Blair, are likely to join McMIllan's staff. Demopolous was given a phone interview with the Atlanta Hawks before they promoted assistant Larry Drew to their head coaching position over the weeekend. Prunty's name came up last week as a possible assistant for Avery Johnson's staff in New Jersey. On this week's podcast Dave and Casey touch a little bit on what turnover on the coaching staff might mean. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter PS Thanks to Timmay! in the FanShots who beat me to it.
