Chauncey Billups has made his first big addition to his coaching staff for the Blazers.

Former Wizards head coach Scott Brooks reportedly will become Billups' top assistant coach.

Brooks coached the Wizards for five seasons before being let go at the end of the 2020-21 season. He led the Wizards to a 183-207 record with three playoff appearances.

He previously coached the Oklahoma City Thunder from 2008 to 2015. Brooks was named coach of the year during the NBA’s 2009-10 season. Two years later, he led the Thunder to a Western Conference championship before the team lost to LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the 2012 NBA Finals.
