Pacers hire Popeye Jones

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers hired Popeye Jones as an assistant coach Wednesday.

Adding the 43-year-old ex-NBA player gives the Pacers a full staff. Indiana lost Brian Shaw to Denver and Jim Boylen to San Antonio earlier this summer. Coach Frank Vogel hired former NBA head coach Nate McMillan to replace Shaw.

Jones spent the last three seasons with the Nets, the first year in player development and the last two as an assistant coach. He worked for Dallas in player development the previous three seasons.

The Murray State alum was Houston’s second-round draft pick in 1992 then was traded to Dallas. Jones played one season in Europe before returning to Dallas in 1993 and wound up making stops with Toronto, Boston, Denver, Washington and Golden State before retiring in 2004.

Purdue fills final coaching spot with Brantley

WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) — Purdue coach Matt Painter hired former Boilermakers player Brandon Brantley as an assistant coach Wednesday.

Painter now has a full staff with three Indiana natives as assistants.

Brantley spent the last two years with Basketball University and as the EG10 AAU Under-16 head coach. He also served as a head coach at the Indianapolis Pro-Am Summer League from 2008-12. From 2006-10, he worked on the coaching staff at Indianapolis Ben Davis.
