Building the new coach Chauncey Billups bench is a task in itself for Balzers but they have locked in the first dependable piece by hiring the former Wizards and Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks.
Billups’s lack of experience at a head coach level has stirred controversy across the state, though with Brooks they have someone with significant head coaching experience on the coaching staff. Portland Trail Blazers have taken a significant step forward in getting the public support with their new hire as they hope to improve their record next season as well as work on their defense. Brooks has helped develop players like Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook and would be a boost to Blazers. Billups has a long way to go as he develops his coaching bench one piece at a time.
