Nets announce assistant coaches

Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Westphal headlines a group of assistants that will be aiding Brooklyn Nets head coach Lionel Hollins this upcoming season.

John Welch, Tony Brown, Joe Wolf and Jay Humphries were also announced as assistant coaches on Wednesday. General manager Billy King made the announcement.

Westphal reunites with Hollins, who was named Jason Kidd's replacement in early July after Kidd left abruptly for Milwaukee. The duo were assistants together with the Phoenix Suns from 1988-92. Westphal was then named head coach in 1992, and Hollins remained on the staff as an assistant for the next three seasons.

Westphal, 63, brings more than 20 years of coaching experience to the staff, including three stints as head coach with the Suns, SuperSonics and Kings.

Along with the five assistants, Brooklyn named Jim Sann as its advanced scout.
