The Los Angeles Lakers have hired Miles Simon as an assistant coach, it was announced Tuesday by General Manager Rob Pelinka.

Simon joins Luke Walton’s staff after serving as a prep coach with USA Basketball. Most recently, Simon served as head coach of the 2017 USA Junior National Select Team for the Nike Hoops Summit, leading the USA to a victory over the World Select Team. Simon won gold medals as an assistant for the 2016 USA Men’s U17 World Championship Team, as well as the 2015 USA Men’s U16 National Team. In addition to his work with USA Basketball, Simon has spent each of the last nine NBA off-seasons working in a player development role with some of the league’s top talent and served as the Director of the Nike Basketball Academy last summer. Simon has also worked as a college basketball analyst for ESPN.

The Arizona alumnus was the 1997 NCAA Tournament MOP after leading the Wildcats to a National Championship as a junior. Upon graduation, Simon played one season for the Orlando Magic (1998-99), before spending time playing oversees and in the CBA. At the conclusion of his playing career, Simon spent three seasons (2005-08) as an assistant coach at Arizona on Lute Olson’s staff.
