*Wednesday, August 25, 2004* –

General manager Kiki Vandeweghe has tapped an old acquaintance, Rex
Kalamian, to round out the Nuggets’ coaching staff.

Kalamian, who spent 2003-04 with the Philadelphia 76ers after six years
with the Los Angeles Clippers as an assistant coach, first met
Vandeweghe at Pete Newell’s big man camp more than a decade ago.

Asked why he chose Kalamian, Vandeweghe said, “I think it’s just
basketball knowledge. He started out as a video guy. He’s got the same
kind of background (head coach) Jeff (Bzdelik) does. He’s great at
looking at what other teams do.”

Kalamian joins Michael Cooper as a new member of Bzdelik’s staff. The
two replace John MacLeod and T.R. Dunn.
