EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. (AP) - Chuck Person and Quin Snyder have been hired by the Los Angeles Lakers as assistants to new coach Mike Brown.

They join John Kuester, the former Detroit Pistons head coach, on Brown’s staff.

Person spent the last two seasons working with the Lakers under retired coach Phil Jackson. Previously, he spent two seasons each as an assistant with Sacramento and Indiana, where he played 13 years in the NBA.

Snyder spent last season as an assistant with Philadelphia. Previously, he coached the Austin Toros in the NBA D-League for three years. Snyder coached seven years at Missouri, where his tenure ended in NCAA violations that led to probation and off-the-court problems with players.
