MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have hired former NBA player DeMarre Carroll and former Utah Jazz assistant coach Vince Legarza as assistant coaches.
Carroll reunites with Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer after playing for him with the Atlanta Hawks from 2013-15. His 11-season NBA career also included stints with the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets, and San Antonio Spurs. Carroll most recently played with San Antonio and Houston in the 2019-20 season.
Legarza has been an assistant coach with the Jazz for the past four seasons. Before Utah, Legarza spent three seasons in the Minnesota Timberwolves player development department.
In other moves, the Bucks promoted Charles Lee from assistant coach to head coach, Blaine Mueller promoted from chief video coordinator to assistant coach, and promoted Sidney Dobner from assistant video coordinator to chief video coordinator. This will be the ninth season that Lee has worked on one of Budenholzer’s staffs.
