Former basketball player of the Russian national team Becky Hammon may become the first woman-head coach of the NBA club. Now, 41-year-old Hammon is the assistant to the head coach of “San Antonio”.
The leadership of “Milwaukee” intends in the near future to negotiate with her and invite him to lead the team. However, the short list “Bucks” includes about 10 specialists, including Becky’s colleague for San Antonio and former coach of CSKA Ettore Messina.
Recall that Hammon played for the Russian team in 2008-2012, becoming in its composition a bronze medalist of the 2008 Olympics and vice-champion of Europe in 2009.
