McMillan still interviewing assistant candidates, source says
Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan is still interviewing candidates to fill out his coaching staff and nothing has been finalized, a source said.
AOL Fanhouse has reported that Bernie Bickerstaff (Chicago), Jimmy Lynam (Philadelphia) and Chuck Person (Los Angeles Lakers) will join the Portland Trail Blazers as assistant coaches.
The Blazers have already lost two assistants since the end of the 2009-10 season. Monty Williams was named New Orleans’ head coach, while Maurice Lucas will not return to Portland due to health issues. In addition, lead assistant Dean Demopoulos and assistant Joe Prunty are not expected to return for the 2010-11 season.
