Grizzlies to name assistant coaches

I have no idea how this is not in the paper. Here are the names of the 3 assistant coaches that will join Marc Iavaroni's staff and will be announced soon. Two of them had been speculated on correctly. They are... Johnny Davis from the Pacers, Gordon Chiesa from the Seattle Sonics, and the third guy is one that I have never even heard of but I am told he is very well respected. His name is Dave Joerger and he has been a multiple-time champion with the Dakota Wizards (NBDL) and in the CBA. He started coaching at an extremely young age and he has a great reputation.
