UPDATE: More on Bryan Gates via Sam Amick’s Twitter. This article on Gates from minorleaguenews.com:
Bryan Gates knows how to win: His 2008 National Basketball Association D-League Idaho Stampede championship banner proves it. He knows how to coach: he was named the league’s Coach of the Year in his second year at the helm for Idaho. But more than anything, he knows how to develop players.
For Gates, melding chemistry, teaching fundamentals and winning games is a formula that he has mastered in his time with the Stampede.
“There are different scenarios with each player. In our situation with Idaho, I understand that it’s a developmental league where we receive assigned players from the NBA (to get significant minutes),” Gates said. “But to make the transition, it really comes down to the attitude of the player.”
