“It’s rare when you can strengthen your staff with someone who has similar experiences and such a passion for basketball. Luke is someone who identifies with our five core values ​​as a coach, but also with the traits he was recognized for as a player, both in college and in the NBA”rejoiced the coach. « I’m glad our players have another valuable support they can work with on the pitch as we continue to do things the right way to achieve lasting success. »

In addition to having tasted the intoxication of success as a player and then an assistant, Luke Walton also has the advantage of knowing his new environment, he who ended his playing career with the Cavaliers.
