Chris Finch Close to Joining Pelicans Coaching Staff?


The New Orleans Pelicans, looking for a potential spark for their All-Star frontcourt duo of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, are closing in on hiring Denver Nuggets assistant coach Chris Finch, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN that the Pelicans have pursued Finch to add his offensive brainpower to head coach Alvin Gentry’s staff after announcing earlier this week that both Gentry and general manager Dell Demps will return next season.
