New Jersey Nets
Billy King and Milton Lee were in Springfield Thursday, along with an NBA TV camera crew, to familiarize themselves with the Armor's facilities and talk to local media about their search for a head coach and an assistant, which they hope to have done by November's D-League draft.
Lee, appointed the Armor GM last week, and Bobby Marks are screening candidates for the job...and talking as well with Avery Johnson. Lee will make the final decision. Both coaches will be Nets' employees as well as the team's trainer. "We want to get somebody who is the right fit so we don’t want to make a rush decision," King said.
What's the camera crew up to? The Armor, who open November 25 at home, will be featured in an online documentary series by the Nets titled "Road to Springfield."
