Back on July 27th, Nevada announced that assistant coach Ronald Dupree had accepted a job in the NBA, but the team Dupree will be working for and his position within that organization would be made known at a later date.
It has now been officially announced that Dupree has been hired as a scout by the Milwaukee Bucks. The following was released today:
The Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Operations department has expanded with the following additions: Milt Newton as Assistant General Manager, David Mincberg as Director of Basketball Strategy, Tony Bollier as Director of Basketball Operations and Ronald Dupree as Scout. The team also named Frank Johnson as Assistant Coach.
A native of Biloxi, Miss., Dupree spent last season as Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at the University of Nevada, Reno. Undrafted in 2003 out of LSU, Dupree went on to an 11-year professional playing career, including six seasons in the NBA with Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, Seattle and Toronto. Following his retirement in 2014, he returned to LSU as a student assistant on the men’s basketball team.
