The Milwaukee Bucks have hired Trevor Gleeson as an assistant coach, per Woj:

As Woj reports, Gleeson is no stranger to Coach Griffin, having been on the same staff under Nick Nurse the last two seasons in Toronto. That familiarity was presumably crucial to Griffin bringing him in. Prior to that, he’s bounced around the world as an assistant and head coach, including the United States, South Korea, and Australia (his place of birth). He enjoyed particular success in the latter, winning five titles as the head coach the Perth Wildcats in Australia’s National Basketball League (NBL) and receiving Coach of the Year accolades twice. Notably, he even won the NBL cup in 2021 - their version of the IST - which should prove useful if he sticks around. Although Jae Crowder appears less washed than previously thought, at the very least he could provide intel to Jae on a number of NBL teams.

Will Gleeson’s addition be the missing piece to the ongoing puzzle that is the Milwaukee Bucks? Let us know in the comments below.
