MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Bucks have rounded out new coach Larry Drew's staff with three assistants, including an NBA veteran with roots to the division rival Chicago Bulls.
General manager John Hammond on Wednesday announced that Jim Cleamons would join the staff. He most recently coached in the Chinese Basketball Association following two decades assisting Phil Jackson with the Bulls and Lakers.
Cleamons also served as head coach of the Mavericks in 1996-97, and also had a stint as an assistant in New Orleans.
Former NBA center Scott Williams is joining the Bucks after serving as an assistant for Idaho in the NBA D-League. He played in Milwaukee from 1999-2001.
Also joining Drew as assistant coach/player development is Josh Oppenheimer. Bob Bender and Nick Van Exel were named Bucks assistants earlier this summer.
