Ding: Former Blazers Assistant Coach Bernie Bickerstaff To Join Lakers

Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register reports that the Los Angeles Lakers will add former Portland Trail Blazers assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff to coach Mike Brown's staff. ---------------------------------- It hasn’t exactly been a secret around the NBA that Lakers head coach Mike Brown has been courting Eddie Jordan to join his staff as an assistant coach. The official hiring of Jordan, who played for the Lakers in 1980-83 and ’84, is expected to occur in the coming days — and Brown will be hiring longtime NBA sage Bernie Bickerstaff, too. Bickerstaff, 68, gave Brown his first NBA job as a Denver Nuggets intern when Bickerstaff was the general manager of the team. ---------------------------------- Bickerstaff spent two years in Portland coaching under former Blazers coach Nate McMillan and interim coach Kaleb Canales. Back in July, the Los Angeles Clippers announced the hiring of former Blazers assistant coach Bob Ociepka. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
