NewmanAccording to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Spurs assistant coach Don Newman will be returning to the Spurs’ sidelines.

Suns coach Alvin Gentry had considered Newman among others to fill a new role within the Suns coaching staff as defensive coordinator.

Newman has been an assistant under Gregg Popovich since 2004 and his defensive experience will come in handy with the Spurs looking to get back to their defensive roots when the NBA season starts.
