One of the Spurs’ highly regarded assistants is joining another Pop disciple.
Udoka will take Monty Williams‘ spot on Brett Brown’s staff, a major hire by the 76ers. Udoka is a highly-regarded assistant coach who has had strong head coaching interviews over the past two years. https://t.co/dOTKLTn9h1

Udoka played for the Spurs in two different stints (2007-09 and 2010-11) and has been an assistant coach under Gregg Popovich since 2012. Also a former teammate of LaMarcus Aldridge in Portland, he was an integral part of the Spurs’ largest free agent signing under Pop. It will be a large vacancy to fill, and it will be interesting to see who the Spurs hire (or promote from within) to fill his spot, so stay tuned.
