"Kurt and Johnny bring many years of NBA experience both as coaches and as former players to this team,” D'Antoni said. "Kurt is a great basketball mind, extremely good at working with big men, and his experience as a head coach in this league is going to prove very helpful to our staff. Johnny is a two-time NBA head coach with years of experience playing as well as coaching in this league. The vast array of NBA knowledge he brings to the table will be invaluable to us."
