Spurs hire Monty Williams as vice president of basketball operations
Brian Wright is the higher-ranking addition, but former Pelicans coach Monty Williams is the big name in the Spurs’ latest batch of hires.
Though Williams joining San Antonio was known, his front-office position comes as a slight surprise.
It’s impossible not to root for Williams, who has shown so much grace and strength following the sudden death of his wife. He’ll do well in San Antonio, and the Spurs’ track record suggests their other hires will as well.
No Tim Duncan on that list – yet.
