Bucks add Vin Baker to coaching staff; Prunty confirmed as interim coach

He's been back in Milwaukee as part of the WTMJ Radio and the TV broadcast teams for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Now, he's a coach.

WTMJ's Doug Russell reports, citing a source, that the Bucks have added Vin Baker to the coaching staff. The team confirmed Doug's report later Friday morning in their announcement confirming GM Jon Horst's words Monday that Joe Prunty would remain head coach for the rest of 2017-18.

Baker had a 13-year NBA career, four of those years in Milwaukee where he was one of the top power forward in basketball, averaging 18.3 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.

Mistakes with alcoholism and numerous other issues led to a disintegration of his career.

His rehabilitation has led him down a path of sobriety, towards affecting other people's lives in coaching and in mentoring - a role he will now play with the Bucks.
