Pelicans Coach Aims ‘to trust my guys more’

The biggest benefit for (Pelicans head coach Monty) Williams may have come from being around the wisdom and guidance of USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski and national team director Jerry Colangelo, as well as longtime Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, a fellow USA assistant.

“I learned how to deal with elite players,” Williams said. “I’ve got this reputation now – I’ve heard it all summer – of how tough I am on guys. The one thing I learned from Coach K, Mr. Colangelo and Coach Boeheim, they didn’t push it down my throat, but they got it across to me to trust my guys more.  The whole experience was giving guys a little more freedom to play their game, not try to hamstring guys. I thought I did it a little bit, but I think it’s something I’m still working on. I think I can be a lot better at that now.””
