Jay Humphries added to Lionel Hollins coaching staff in Brooklyn

Updated: July 17, 2014


A report came out early this morning that Brooklyn Nets head coach Lionel Hollins has hired Jay Humphries to his staff to go with John Welch, Paul Westphal, Tony Brown and Joe Wolf.

Humphries, as Wojnarowski puts it, has paid his dues in China, South Korea and Reno in the D-League.  He was the head coach of the Suns Reno D-League team in 2008 before going to China in 2011.

The Nets coaching staff is almost complete from what has been released with a few specialists still to be announced.

I am still interested to see what transpires with banished coach Lawrence Frank and whether or not he will join Hollins or be bought out to re-join Doc Rivers in LA?

This coaching staff is much more experienced this time around and should help in the transition process early in the season.
