For the Win
Monty Williams, the former New Orleans Pelicans head coach who was an assistant with the Oklahoma City Thunder when his wife died in a tragic car accident in February, opened up to ESPN’s Hannah Storm while working with Team USA as the Olympics approach.
He told Storm about receiving the call about the accident, then added this:
“I still text her. It’s not like I know she’s going to answer, but it’s just part of what I do. I’ll go outside at night and I’ll just look up in the sky and start talking to her. When you’ve been somebody for 26 years and married for 20, you would just have to be around us to know what we were like.”
He also talked about getting back to coaching with the national team and how he “can’t wait to get back to coaching,” which came on the heels of an ESPN report that he’s expected to join the San Antonio Spurs as an assistant:
Sources told ESPN that Williams … has been urged by Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to take as much of a role with the organization as he feels comfortable for the 2016-17 campaign.
The specifics of what role Williams would fill and how much time he could commit have not yet been determined, but sources say San Antonio has opened the door to either a coaching and player-development role or a front-office position (or a hybrid), depending on what he prefers.
