The most prolific shooter in Cavaliers history is heading down south: Mark Price will reportedly join the Charlotte Bobcats coaching staff this upcoming season. According to the latest from Bobcats beat writer Rick Bonnell, Price will re-enter the assistant ranks underneath new head coach Steve Clifford. Fellow former NBA All-Star Patrick Ewing is also on the Charlotte staff as well as Stephen Silas, son of former Cavaliers head coach Paul Silas. Price, 49, has long served as a coaching and shooting consultant since retiring from the NBA in 1998. He has received some of the credit for working with Josh Smith and Rajon Rondo over the years. Most recently, he served as a player development coach for Stan Van Gundy and the Orlando Magic during the 2011-12 season. A four-time All-Star in Cleveland, Price finished his NBA career with a 90.39% free throw shooting mark, just barely behind Steve Nash (90.42%) for the best ever mark. Constantly hampered by injuries, Price played over 1,500 minutes only seven times in his entire career. Previously this offseason, some Cavs fans, as led by the crew over at Stepien Rules, had petitioned for Price to be a possible candidate for the Cleveland head coach opening. Former coach Mike Brown later received the gig. Yet it’s not a surprise to see that the fan-favorite has landed back on his feet in the NBA coaching ranks.
