Former Trail Blazers associate head coach Nate Tibbetts has found a new opportunity coming with the Orlando Magic, joining Jamahl Mosley’s staff, per Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer.
Tibbetts spent a majority of his coaching career with the Blazers and spent each of them with Terry Stotts. He spent his first six seasons as an assistant before being named the associate head coach the last two seasons.
Heading to Sacramento and joining Luke Walton’s staff was also a possibility for Tibbetts, before deciding on moving across the country to Orlando.
Tibbetts and Mosley will be reuniting after 10 seasons apart. Both spent the 2011-’12 and 2012-’13 seasons with the Cavaliers.
During Tibbetts' time with the Blazers, the team made the playoffs in eight consecutive seasons.
