Report: Keith Smart set to join David Fizdale’s Grizzlies coaching staff


David Fizdale’s coaching staff in Memphis is coming together. Just days after he hired Nick Van Exel and former Rockets interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff, he’s reportedly set to add former Kings and Warriors head coach Keith Smart, according to’s Marc Stein:

Smart was most recently a colleague of Fizdale’s on Erik Spoelstra’s staff in Miami, so there’s a familiarity there. Smart has also been a head coach, taking over for Donnie Nelson in Golden State and Paul Westphal in Sacramento after they were fired mid-season.
