OKLAHOMA CITY —
The Oklahoma City Thunder has filled two assistant positions on its coaching tree.
Robert Pack and Mike Terpstra were both named assistant coaches Wednesday by Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. They'll join Rex Kalamian, Mark Bryant and Brian Keefe on Head Coach Scott Brooks' bench.
Pack joins the Thunder after spending the previous three seasons as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers where he served as the head coach for the Clippers' entry in the 2012 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Prior to that, he spent one season on the New Orleans Hornets bench.
Terpstra brings over 20 years of experience to Oklahoma City after working in various capacities at the college, junior college and high school levels, with additional experience in the NBA Development League and the CBA. After spending the 2005-06 season as an assistant coach/director of player development with the Idaho Stampede of the CBA, he spent one season working with the coaching staff of the Colorado 14ers of the NBA Development League.
"We're excited to add Robert and Mike to our coaching staff for the upcoming season," said Head Coach Scott Brooks. "These additions bring diverse backgrounds to our group that will help the further development of our players."
