BOSTON (CBS) – New Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has reportedly added one of the top assistants to his staff in Boston.

According to multiple reports, the Celtics have hired former Chicago Bulls assistant Ron Adams.

Adams served as Tom Thibodeau’s lead assistant in Chicago last season, but was not brought back. He has also had coaching stints with the Philadelphia 76ers, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Milwaukee Bucks. Adams began his coaching career in the college ranks at Fresno Pacific University in 1969, and was inducted into the School’s Hall of Fame in 2011.

Now, he brings over 20 years of NBA experience to the Celtics, who are led by an NBA rookie coach in Stevens.

Adams joins a Celtics bench that includes Jay Larranaga and Jamie Young, who were both with the Celtics last season, and new hire Micah Shrewsberry, a former Butler assistant under Stevens.
