Bobcats Hire Mark Price as Assistant Coach
The Charlotte Bobcats are in the process of hiring former Georgia Tech and Cleveland Cavaliers star Mark Price as an assistant coach, in part to improve the team’s overall shooting.
Clifford emphasized in an interview with the Observer that while Price can help the team’s shooting, that he can do a lot more. Clifford and Price previously worked together in Orlando.
“Jeff (Van Gundy) used to say Mark was Steve Nash before there was a Steve Nash,” Clifford said of Price’s point-guard abilities. “Player-development is a piece that is critical to us, and he can help us with our shooting and our pick-and-roll. But he can also be a resource on a lot of other things.”
