Duke To Hold Two Pro Days, Close All Other Practices To NBA Scouts

Sep 14, 2016 10:20 AM

Mike Krzyzewski is barring NBA teams from scouting Duke's practices this season except for two pro days scheduled in October.

NBA executives were extended invitations to pro days on Oct. 19 and 25 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

“All other practices will be closed,” Duke told teams in an email.

NBA executives and scouts are free to scout any and all college games.

John Calipari instituted consecutive preseason pro days in October for his program, although those have been held on back-to-back days, which allow team executives to make a single trip. 

Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles are anticipated high lottery picks in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Stacey Augmon To Join Bucks' Coaching Staff

Sep 7, 2016 11:24 AM

Stacey Augmon is close to joining the Milwaukee Bucks' coaching staff.

Augmon worked with the Bucks' Summer League team this year.

Augmon has spent the past five seasons as an assistant for UNLV.

Augmon had hoped to be considered for the UNLV head-coaching job after the departure of Dave Rice and expressed "disappointment" to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he was passed over for the job. The position first ‎went to Chris Beard, then was given to Marvin Menzies after Beard lasted only a week before taking the job at Texas Tech.
