Former NBA player and three-time NBA champion Scott Williams and former Manhattan coach Barry Rohrssen have joined the Idaho Stampede as assistant coaches, the NBA Development League team and its NBA affiliate the Portland Trail Blazers announced Thursday. Ed Flory, a former Stampede assistant coach, will be the team's director of basketball operations.
Williams won three championships with the Chicago Bulls in a career that spanned 15 years. He also played for Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Denver, Phoenix, Dallas and Cleveland, averaging 5.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Williams, who has been in broadcasting since 2008, played at North Carolina in college. He is one of two players in NBA history to be teammates with both Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
The team announced earlier in the week that Michael Peck, a high school coach from Henderson, Nev., will be the team's head coach.
