The article cites a person familiar with the situation who must remain anonymous because no official hiring decisions have been made. The person says that Charlotte assistants Rob Werdann and Ralph Lewis will not be retained, but the Bobcats are working to keep Stephen Silas, who was an assistant under his father Paul Silas the last one and a half seasons in Charlotte.
Augmon, who played in the NBA for 15 years after helping UNLV win the 1990 national championship, returned to Las Vegas last year to join former teammate Dave Rice’s staff at their alma mater. From 2007-11, Augmon was a player development coach with the Denver Nuggets. Dunlap was an assistant on that staff from 2006-08.
Former UNLV assistant and longtime NBA assistant Tim Grgurich, who worked with both Augmon and Dunlap in Denver, has been rumored to be among the candidates to be on the staff. However, Dunlap told the Charlotte Observer on June 20 that Grgurich probably isn’t interested in the lead assistant role. Grgurich had spent time at some UNLV practices this past season and supported Augmon at the Southern Nevada Hall of Fame reception on June 8.
A phone call placed to Augmon was not immediately returned.
