Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

TORONTO — The Toronto Rap­tors have hired as­sis­tants Jerry Stack­house, Rex Kalamian and Andy Greer to round out Dwayne Casey’s coach­ing staff. It’s the first NBA coach­ing po­si­tion for Stack­house, who played 18 years in the NBA and was an all-star with Detroit in 2000 and 2001. Stack­house av­er­aged 16.9 points, 3.3 as­sists and 3.2 re­bounds in 970 ca­reer reg­u­lar sea­son-games (564 starts). He helped Dal­las reach the NBA fi­nals in 2006 and played un­der Casey in the Mav­er­icks’ 2008-09 sea­son, when the Toronto head coach was an as­sis­tant on Rick Carlisle’s staff. Kalamian joins the Rap­tors af­ter six sea­sons with Ok­la­homa City, in­clud­ing the last two as lead as­sis­tant. He had pre­vi­ous as­sis­tant coach­ing stints with Sacra­mento (2007-09), Min­nesota (2005-07), Den­ver (2004-05) and the Los An­ge­les Clip­pers (1995-2003). Greer spent the past five sea­sons as an as­sis­tant with the Chicago Bulls. The new ad­di­tions will join re­turn­ing as­sis­tants Nick Nurse and Jama Mahlalela on Casey’s staff.
