Green: Pelicans’ situation reminiscent of Suns

METAIRIE, La. — When the New Orleans Pelicans were searching for a new head coach, they found the answer in Phoenix Suns assistant Willie Green.

Green, the lead assistant during the Suns’ improbable run to the NBA Finals, now shifts his attention to trying to find success in New Orleans — and he doesn’t think the Pelicans are that far away.

“This is a situation that actually reminds me a lot of Phoenix,” Green said at his introductory news conference on Tuesday morning.

“Really high talented players. The staff, same thing. High character. People that love to come to work. Love to come together. We’re really close to taking the next step. I believe going into next season that’s our goal, that’s our mindset. That’s what makes us a sleeping giant. We have two young All-Stars. Putting a lot of talent around those guys and really just making this team go.”
