Sidney Moncrief to Become Assistant Coach for the Bucks

by July 28, 2011

Sidney Moncrief, one of the greatest players in Milwaukee Bucks history, is on the verge of joining Scott Skiles’ coaching staff. Reports Yahoo! Sports: “Moncrief will replace Kelvin Sampson on Scott Skiles’ coaching staff, and have significant responsibilities on the defensive side. Sampson left the Bucks to become Kevin McHale’s lead assistant with the Houston Rockets. A five-time All-Star in his 10 seasons with Milwaukee in the 1980s, Moncrief was the catalyst of perennial Eastern Conference-contending Bucks. He was twice the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year, and was named four times to the All-Defensive first-team.”
