Milwaukee Bucks Coach Doc Rivers Hires Former Lakers Coach Darvin Ham as Top Assistant!

Los Angeles, California – Former Los Angeles Lakers coach Darvin Ham has agreed to join Milwaukee Bucks coach Doc Rivers’ staff as the top assistant, sources confirmed on Monday. Ham, who was let go by the Lakers after a 94-70 record and a trip to the Western Conference finals in two seasons, is returning to the Bucks where he previously spent four seasons and was part of their 2021 NBA championship team.

Highly sought after as a top assistant coach this offseason, Ham’s return to the Bucks comes as the team looks to bounce back from an injury-riddled season that saw them exit in the first round against Indiana. Known for his strong relationships with key players like two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Ham brings experience and expertise to the coaching staff.

Rivers, who took over 42 games into the regular season after the departure of first-year coach Adrian Griffin, has been actively reshaping the Bucks’ coaching team. With Ham’s addition, the Bucks are aiming to strengthen their coaching staff and build a winning culture for the upcoming season. The collaboration between Ham and Rivers is expected to bring a fresh perspective and new strategies to the team.

Having previously worked together, Ham and Rivers share a good understanding, which could prove beneficial in enhancing the Bucks’ performance on the court. With Ham’s track record of success and Rivers’ leadership, the Bucks are looking to make a strong comeback in the next season. As they gear up for the new challenge, the partnership between these two experienced coaches is set to make a positive impact on the team’s development and overall success.
