The NBA coaches who got hired this summer are just starting to round out their coaching staffs. A few interesting tidbits came out on Saturday.

Tony Brown, the interim coach in Brooklyn last season after Lionel Hollins was fired mid-season, will be moving to our nation’s capital to join up with Scott Brooks, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

That’s a solid hire by Brooks.

Arguably the most coveted lead assistant job in the league is the chair next to Steve Kerr with Golden State. The seat Luke Walton is vacating to take the Lakers’ job (Alvin Gentry had it the year before and is head coach of the Pelicans now). So who gets the seat after Walton? Don’t rule out former Lakers’ coach Mike Brown, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

Just some names to watch as the music stops and all the chairs around the league get filled.
