According to Shams Charania, Senior lead NBA Insider for The Athletic and Stadium, The San Antonio Spurs have hired one of their most iconic players to join the coaching staff.

Mr. Big Fundemental stayed loyal to the city of San Antonio for the entirety of his career and is now awarded for it. During his 19 seasons in the league, Timmy averaged 19 points and 10.8 rebounds, enough to enter NBA's top 15 in three statistical categories — points, rebounds, and blocks. He'll go down as one of the best and most versatile big men in NBA history.
