Ex-Bucks coach Porter joins Pistons as assistant
"Terry was a fierce competitor during his playing days and he has excelled as both a head coach and assistant coach in this league," said Joe Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations. "We feel his experience is a good fit for our team."
Porter compiled a record of 71-93 during his two seasons as the Bucks' coach (2003-05). The team made it to the first round of the 2004 playoffs.
He was an assistant coach with the Sacramento Kings in the 2002-03 season after a 17-year NBA playing career with Portland, Minnesota, Miami and San Antonio.
In 1,274 career games, Porter averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 assists and 1.24 steals. He was an All-Star in 1991 and 1993.
