Blazers hire Dickau, promote Greer

submitted 6 years ago by in Rip City

Two days before training camp is scheduled to begin, Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan has completed his coaching staff, hiring one of his former players and elevating a scout to assistant coach status.

Dan Dickau, a graduate of Prairie High School who twice played for Portland during a six-year NBA career, has been added to McMillan’s staff as a player development assistant, the team announced this morning.

The Blazers also promoted Larry Greer to assistant coach. Greer served as an advanced scout the last four seasons and was credited with gaining the team tactical advantages in key victories.
