Frisco General Manager DEL HARRIS Accepts Position With New Jersey Nets

NBA D-League Frisco’s First “Call-Up”

FRISCO, December 1, 2009 –

NBA D-League Frisco is proud to announce that General Manager Del Harris has accepted a position with the New Jersey Nets as an assistant coach. Harris represents D-League Frisco’s first NBA “call-up” as he returns to the NBA ranks. Harris was announced as Frisco’s General Manager at a press conference on November 5th, and while his time with the Frisco franchise was relatively brief, his impact will continue to be felt. “I am very excited for Del and the opportunity he has before him,” Head Coach Nancy Lieberman commented. “He’s been such an asset for so many people for so long, and he is deserving of this position to share his wisdom with the players in New Jersey. If I have any questions, he’s only a phone call away – and I will be calling. I wish him the best of luck.”

Owner Donnie Nelson put together a star-studded cast in Frisco as Lieberman was named head coach, Spud Webb the President of Basketball Operations, and Harris the General Manager at the November 5th press conference. “Wow, our first NBA call-up and we don’t even have a name yet.” Nelson said. “It’s only fitting that it’s Del Harris. He’s been a trailblazer and innovator throughout his decorated career. When you have someone as talented as Del on your staff, with more than 50 years of basketball experience and countless awards and honors, you know losing him is always a possibility. But this is what the D-League is all about, making dreams coming true. Kiki has chosen one of the wisest coaches I’ve ever served with and a man of impeccable integrity. We wish the ‘Silver Fox’ nothing but success… starting Friday night of course.” The Dallas Mavericks take on the New Jersey Nets Wednesday night at 6:30 pm in New Jersey. “Del has seen it all, and will be a tremendous resource for the New Jersey Nets,” President of Basketball Operations Spud Webb said. “There’s no question that he’ll do a great job. Our Frisco franchise is growing by leaps and bounds, and Del is a big part of that.”
