Hawks hire Jent
as assistant coach
ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks have hired Chris Jent as an assistant coach.
Jent spent last season as an assistant at alma mater Ohio State, but has spent most of his coaching career in the NBA. The Hawks announced his hiring on Friday.
Jent has worked for the Philadelphia 76ers (2003-04), Orlando Magic (2004-05), Cleveland Cavaliers (2006-11) and Sacramento Kings (2013-14). He was the interim head coach with the Magic for 18 games, going 5-13.
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer says Jent “has a track record of improving players’ skill level and understanding of the game at every level.”
The former Ohio State player spent two seasons in the NBA during a 10-year professional career.
Jent served as head coach of the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA G League in 2015-16.
Heat send McRoberts
to Mavs, gain cap space
MIAMI — The Miami Heat have traded oft-injured forward Josh McRoberts to the Dallas Mavericks for center A.J. Hammons and a 2023 second-round draft pick.
The move frees much-needed salary cap space for Miami, which owed McRoberts just over $6 million for next season. McRoberts was limited to 81 games with the Heat in the last three seasons.
Hammons is set to make $1.3 million.
Both players got to the NBA out of Carmel High in Carmel, Indiana. McRoberts graduated from Carmel; Hammons left there and transferred to Oak Hill in Virginia for his junior and senior seasons.
Dallas would become McRoberts’ seventh team. He played for Portland, the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando, Indiana and Charlotte before Miami.
Mexico soccer coach
banned from Gold Cup
ZURICH — Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio has been effectively banned from the Gold Cup by FIFA for insulting match officials.
FIFA banned Osorio for six matches on Friday for his behavior during the Confederations Cup third-place game last Sunday, when Mexico lost to Portugal 2-1.
Mexico will have to play up to six games to retain the Gold Cup in the U.S., starting on Sunday against El Salvador in San Diego.
Osorio was incensed when his team was not awarded a penalty against Portugal.
FIFA said Osorio “used insulting words towards the match officials while displaying an aggressive attitude towards them.”
If Mexico plays fewer than six games at the Gold Cup, Osorio’s suspension will carry over to its next internationals.
