As NBA's training camps approach, teams continue to fill out their coaching staffs with new hires — we heard last night that the Lakers have added a pair of assistants in Eddie Jordan and Bernie Bickerstaff, while Eastern Michigan's Rob Murphy elected to stay at EMU rather than joining the Magic's staff. We have a few more updates to round up this morning, so let's check out the latest:
- Former Raptors head coach Jay Triano is expected to land on Terry Stotts' staff with the Trail Blazers, tweets ESPN.com's Marc Stein.
- Triano figures to be one of a handful of new coaches hired by Stotts, who said earlier this week that he plans to add four assistants in addition to Kaleb Canales. The new coach in Portland said the new staff could be announced one at a time or as a group.
- The Mavericks had been eyeing Triano to replace Stotts on their own bench, according to Stein. Former Knicks assistant Phil Weber is still on Dallas' list of potential targets, as is Jim O'Brien, who was the head coach in Boston, Philadelphia, and Indiana (Twitter links).
