Hog alum Sidney Moncrief may rejoin Milwaukee Bucks as assistant

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Bucks are in discussions with

franchise icon Sidney Moncrief about returning to the team as an

assistant coach, a person with direct knowledge of the deal tells

The Associated Press.

The person spoke to AP on the condition of anonymity because the

deal has not been completed. The deal was reported by multiple

media outlets, including Yahoo Sports and the Milwaukee Journal

Sentinel, earlier Wednesday.

Bucks coach Scott Skiles has an opening on his staff after

Kelvin Sampson left to join Kevin McHale as an assistant with the

Houston Rockets.

Moncrief played 10 of his 11 NBA seasons in Milwaukee and was a

two-time defensive player of the year.
