Jewish school hires ex-NBA star Kenny Anderson to coach


NEW YORK (JTA) — A Florida Jewish day school is hiring former NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson to coach its boys’ basketball team.

Anderson, 40, was expected to sign a contract Thursday to head the boys’ squad at the 120-student David Posnack Jewish Day School in Davie, Bloomberg reported.

Anderson, a highly sought-after guard following a sensational career at Archbishop Molloy High in New York City, played two seasons at Georgia Tech before being drafted No. 2 overall in 1991 by the New Jersey Nets. Over his 14-year NBA career he played with nine teams, averaging 12.6 points and 6.1 assists.

The boys’ team at the Posnack School, which is located in south Florida’s Broward County, finished 10-11 last season, athletic director Mitch Evron told Bloomberg in a phone interview. The Rams begin their season Oct. 31.
