Default New Coach for Raps


In particular, Herbert will be working with Croatian guard Roko Ukic, about to start his rookie NBA season, and third-year centre Andrea Bargnani, who regressed last year after a promising rookie season.

Herbert is familiar with both from his time in Europe. Australian rookie Nathan Jawai will be a focus, too.
He will begin to work with Bargnani when the big Italian arrives in Las Vegas this month. Before those sessions start, he will "pick the brain" of David Blatt, Bargnani's head coach at Benetton Treviso and a close friend of Herbert.

"He has tremendous potential, but he's young," Herbert said of Bargnani. "But of course, there are a lot of expectations on him as the No. 1 pick."
