Hammon Reflects on Blazers’ Coaching Search

Following the dismissal of long-time coach Terry Stotts, the Trail Blazers hired first-time head coach Chauncey Billups. Prior to that final decision, Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon was one of a handful of candidates that received multiple interviews in the Blazers’ process.
