Sioux Falls, SD
Sioux Falls Skyforce head coach Pat Delany is joining the Charlotte Hornets as an assistant coach, ending his relationship with both the Skyforce and Miami Heat.
Delany was named the 16th head coach in Skyforce history, by the Heat, last August, and led Sioux Falls to a record of 31-19, and the team's first playoff appearance since 2010. Prior to joining the Skyforce, Delany spent eleven seasons in various roles with the Heat organization, including six seasons as an Advance Scout.
The Heat and Skyforce are entering the second season of their single-affiliation partnership, with Miami controlling basketball operations, meaning the Heat, not the Skyforce, will name Delany's replacement.
