Guest: Casey Hill, New Orleans Pelicans Assistant Coach


New Orleans Pelicans assistant coach Casey Hill joins the Basketball Podcast to discuss preparation for the season and building responsibilities.


Casey Hill enters his third season with the New Orleans Pelicans after spending 2018-20 as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers.


Prior to joining Doc Rivers’ staff, Hill spent the 2017-18 season as head coach of the Clippers’ NBA G League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers, leading the team to a 23-27 record in its inaugural season. Hill joined the Clippers after four seasons as head coach of the Santa Cruz Warriors, G League affiliate of the Golden State Warriors, where he led the franchise to its first-ever G League title in 2014-15. Hill and his staff in Santa Cruz earned the 2013-14 NBA G League “Development Champion” award, an annual honor that recognizes the team that best embodies the league’s goals of developing NBA basketball talent via call-ups and assignments. Prior to joining Santa Cruz’s staff, Hill worked under his father, longtime NBA coach Bob Hill, with the Tokyo Apache, a professional team in Japan.


Hill is a graduate of Trinity University (TX), where he was a member of the Tigers’ basketball team that advanced three times to the NCAA Division III Playoffs, including the 2004-05 Elite Eight, and captured two Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships from 2003-07.
