Sources: Hammon, Aces near richest WNBA deal

NBA

San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon is finalizing a five-year deal with the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces that’ll make her the league’s highest-paid coach, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday.

Hammon plans to finish the season with the Spurs, sources said.

A six-time All-Star during her playing career in the WNBA, Hammon, 44, has been an assistant under Spurs coach Gregg Popovich since 2014. She has been interviewed for several head-coach openings in the past but hasn’t gotten an offer to be the first woman to lead an NBA team.

News of Hammon’s deal with the Aces was first reported by The Athletic.
