Grizzlies assistant coach Barry Hecker leaves teamPosted by Inside Hoops
Grizzlies assistant coach Barry Hecker left the team during the Western Conference semifinal against the Thunder for what Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said is a “personal matter.”
Hollins said after the team’s shootaround Monday morning that Hecker’s departure is “nothing that’s public consumption.”
Hecker was with the Grizzlies for their Game 2 win in Oklahoma City but was not with the team in Memphis for their Game 3 win Saturday night. Team officials said only that Hecker is no longer with the Grizzlies.
Hecker had been on Hollins’ staff in Memphis the past five seasons.
