Larry Krystkowiak Will Be Nets' Fifth Assistant

Although there's been no announcement, Avery Johnson made it clear Wednesday that former Bucks head coach Larry Krystkowiak will be on his staff this season. Krystkowiak has also confirmed he's joining the Nets. He will be the team's fifth assistant coach.

"We're going to have a coaching staff that has a lot of experience, especially head coaches, with Sam Mitchell on my staff and Larry Krystkowiak, who was the head coach at Milwaukee," Johnson told season ticket holders in a conference call. "We retained John Loyer, we brought in Popeye Jones from Dallas who's going to be a really good big man's coach and Tom Barrise, who's going to be my do-it-all coach in every facet of the game. So we feel we have a really competent coaching staff that's going to be energized and are really good teachers".

Krystkowiak, who played nine years in the NBA, was head coach of the Bucks for 100 games at the end of the 2006-07 season and all of 2007-2008, winning 31 before being fired. In an interview earlier this week with his hometown paper, Krystkowiak said, "I feel real lucky to be able to go to work with a guy like Avery who’s had a lot of success.”
