Kenny Anderson named head coach of Krunk

Albany, NY (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Krunk of the CBA announced the hiring of Kenny Anderson as their new head coach for the 2007-08 season.

Selected with the second overall pick in the 1991 NBA draft out of Georgia Tech by New Jersey, Anderson enjoyed a 14-year NBA career, averaging 12.6 points and 6.1 assists with nine different teams.

"I am very excited about being a part of the CBA organization," said Anderson. "Becoming a coach after playing in the NBA has been a goal of mine that I dreamed about fulfilling for many years. Many great coaches started their career with the CBA, such as, Phil Jackson, George Karl, and Flip Sanders. I feel that coming back to the city where I was a college star at Georgia Tech to coach, is a blessing."

The Great Falls Explorers also announced on Tuesday the hiring of Scott Wedman as their new head coach for the upcoming season.

"I am glad to be in Great Falls as the new head coach of the Explorers," said Wedman. "They are a class organization and they do things the right way here. Joe Clark is a great owner, Ryan Acra does an outstanding job, and I am excited to be able to work with them to bring the best players here to Great Falls. I expect nothing but success here in Great Falls. It is a great city and I am happy to be a part of it."

Wedman, the sixth overall pick in the 1974 NBA draft by the Kansas City-Omaha Kings, averaged 13.2 points a game in his career, which included an All-Star appearance in 1976.
