D’Tigers coach Brown to miss AfroBasket qualifiers

D’Tigers will be without head coach Mike Brown for next month’s AfroBasket qualifiers, Saturday PUNCH reports.

The 2021 AfroBasket qualifiers will tip off from February 19 to 21 in Kigali, Rwanda.

Brown, who took charge of D’Tigers last November, said he would be with his NBA team: Golden State Warriors.

D’Tigers got off to an impressive start in the first round of the 2021 Afrobasket qualifiers, recording wins over South Sudan, Rwanda and Mali.

“I will not come back in February for the second round of qualifiers because I have to be with the Golden State Warriors,” Brown told ESPN.

“But all the other guys will be there. We got a nice staff who are all going to return in February.

“We got a couple of G-League coaches, a coach that coaches in the first division in France, and then an ex-NBA head coach, John Kuester, who used to be the head coach of the Detroit Pistons.

“Darvin Ham, who is associate head coach with the Milwaukee Bucks, Jordi Fernandez, who is the second assistant for the Denver Nuggets, (Sammy Gelfand), the analytics coach from the Detroit Pistons, a lot of different NBA coaches from different staff were there to help us out and they will all return.

“And then, there is (Alex) Nwora, who has a lot of experience and knowledge coaching this team.

“All those guys are going to be able to come back in February, so that’s going to help with the continuity going forward.”
