Lakers hire 3 assistants, sign 2nd-rd pick Sacre - Sacramento Bee

The Los Angeles Lakers have added assistant coaches Eddie Jordan, Bernie Bickerstaff and Steve Clifford to Mike Brown's coaching staff.

The Lakers also signed second-round draft pick Robert Sacre on Friday.

Jordan is the former head coach at Sacramento, Washington and Philadelphia, leading the Wizards to four consecutive playoff appearances.

The 68-year-old Bickerstaff was a head coach in Charlotte, Seattle, Denver and Washington.

Clifford was Stan Van Gundy's assistant in Orlando the past five seasons.

Kuester essentially was Brown's lead assistant last season. The former Detroit Pistons head coach will be an advance NBA scout for the Lakers, based on the East Coast.

Los Angeles lost assistant coaches Quin Snyder and Ettore Messina to CSKA Moscow earlier this summer.

Sacre is a 7-foot Canadian who played at Gonzaga.
