OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Thunder have added Adrian Griffin an assistant coach and also promoted Vin Bhavnani and Royal Ivey as assistant coaches.

The team made the announcement on Friday.

Griffin joins Donovan’s staff after spending last season as an assistant coach with the Orlando Magic. In 2014, he worked with the USA team that captured gold at the FIBA World Cup.

Bhavnani spent the past six seasons as Oklahoma City’s manager of advanced scouting/player development.

Ivey was promoted after serving as a player development assistant with the Thunder last season.

Mark Daigneault, who joined the Thunder staff earlier this year, will return to his role as head coach of the D-League affiliate Oklahoma City Blue and lead the Thunder in the Orlando Summer League.
