Nate Tibbetts Joins Portland’s Coaching Staff


Former Cleveland Cavaliers assistant Nate Tibbetts, who interviewed with the Charlotte Bobcats for their head coach vacancy, will be joining the Portland Trail Blazers as an assistant for Terry Stotts.

The 35-year-old Tibbetts has been praised for his efforts as a player development coach, particularly in Cleveland with Kyrie Irving. Tibbetts is belived to be one of the fastest rising assistant coaches in the league, but it looks like he won’t get his chance this season. Tibbetts was one of many assistants who the Bobcats have courted for their coaching gig.
