Nevada Smith the basketball coach might bring a wild west offensive mentality to the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
The team formally introduced their fourth new head coach in four seasons this afternoon. Smith Follows three predecessors who took NBA jobs after success with the Skyforce and this is the second time he's taken over a team coming off a D-League title.
From 2013 to 15 at Rio Grande Valley Smith's teams were known for their fast paced offense.
Now he's looking forward to working with Skyforce and Heat, and everything else Sioux Falls offers.
The defending D-League champions open November 12th at home against Salt Lake City.
