Mike Brown on his Assistant Coaches

During an extended LakersTV interview with head coach Mike Brown, we spent some time talking about his new assistant coaches: Chuck Person, John Kuester, Quin Snyder and Ettore Messina. You can check out the video to get Brown's more extended assessment of his staff, but here's a snippet of Brown's words on each coach:

Brown on Chuck Person: "Chuck interviewed for a head coaching job, he has a nice presence, and he is (loyal, intelligent and has the ability to build relationships). I think he can help with the transition of myself and the rest of the guys coming in new with the players that have been here. It's always, in my opinion, good if you can – if you have a relationship with somebody and feel somebody is good – keep somebody from the old staff to help the transition (go) a little more smoothly. Chuck is a terrific assistant coach, and he'll be a head coach just like the rest of my guys sometime in the future."

On John Kuester: "It's great to have John Kuester, a great guy like all my guys. He did, the last year in Cleveland, run our offense and he did a terrific job at it. He's a guy that knows what I like … he'll help not only the transition between myself and the players, but he'll also be a helpful role player in transitioning the new (coaches) get moved along and understand what we're trying to get done a little bit better so it all won't have to come from me all the time."
