    Default Chuck to Kings

    Kings add two more assistants

    The slowly developing Kings coaching staff finally grew Wednesday, when Chuck Person and Randy Brown were hired as assistants to new head coach Reggie Theus.

    Neither hiring came as a surprise: Brown, a Kings player from 1991 to '95, assisted the team during the Vegas Summer League in mid-July, and Person interviewed with Theus late in the session.

    Brown, who won three championship rings with Chicago in the late 1990s and retired after 12 seasons in 2003, was successful in real estate before turning his focus to coaching and seeking the right mentor.

    During Theus' stint as New Mexico State's head coach, Brown paid his way to Las Cruces, N.M., to observe practice and game-time tactics "six or seven times," according to Theus. The choice to learn from Theus, Brown said, was calculated.

    "I wanted to coach, and I wanted to coach in the NBA," Brown said during the Vegas Summer League. "And I knew that Reggie would be here one day. I didn't know it would be this soon, but I knew he'd get there."

    Person, a former Indiana assistant and 13-year playing veteran, is being reunited with small forward Ron Artest. Person was a Pacers assistant during Artest's tenure there, and the two spent part of this offseason working out at the Pacers' practice facility.

    Former Cleveland assistant Kenny Natt, hired in early July, was the first of Theus' assistants.

    Bad for the Pacers; good for Chuck.

    Chuck wasn't/ isn't ready for the hot seat yet, but he's on progress.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Too bad, they should have hired a big man coach instead.

    Good point.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    This must be a rough week for you Jay, what with the Rifleman leaving and the Celtics getting KG and all.

    But can't you tell from my mood? I'm fine.
