Pack, who spent three seasons on Brooks’ staff in Oklahoma City (2013-15) and he will be reunited with Mike Terpstra, with whom he served on Brooks’ staff in OKC.
Pack then spent two seasons on Alvin Gentry’s staff with the New Orleans Pelicans before taking a job in the Portland Trail Blazers’ organization last season.
As a player, Pack started 31 games for the Washington Bullets in the 1995-96 season, averaging 18.1 points and 7.8 assists until a leg injury ended his season.
Pack fills the vacancy on the Washington bench when Sidney Lowe departed to join new Pistons coach Dwane Casey’s staff in Detroit.
