Bobcats name Dell Curry assistant coach

Story body

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- The Charlotte Bobcats have hired Dell Curry as an assistant coach and named former assistant John Outlaw as director of pro player personnel.

Curry, who played 16 years in the NBA, including a 10-year stint with the Charlotte Hornets, had served as the Bobcats' director of player development.

He'll join first-year coach Sam Vincent's staff, which includes Phil Ford, Lee Rose, Jeff Capel and Paul Mokeski.

Outlaw will take over many of Curry's former duties.

The Bobcats have had a complete makeover of their basketball operations in the offseason. Former coach and general manager Bernie Bickerstaff stepped down from both roles to become vice president of basketball operations.
