Cavaliers lose to Bucks at buzzer on controversial finish
“I take full responsibility for that,” Scott said. “I put him in a bad situation against a guy who’s just so athletic, so long.”
Paul Pressey, Scott’s lead assistant, played previously in Milwaukee. There is a picture inside a club lounge in the Bradley Center of Pressey going up for a basket while Scott looks on.
The two didn’t have much of a relationship during their playing days, but really met through Doc Rivers. Pressey used to be an assistant for Rivers.
“I heard around the league what a good coach he was and what a terrific person he was,” said Scott, who brought Pressey to New Orleans for an interview. “Most of the coaches I’ve hired, it’s about a 15-minute sitdown and I can tell right then if I want him or not. Right away I knew. This guy is going to be on my staff until he decides he doesn’t want to coach basketball anymore. We’ve been together ever since.”
