ANALYSIS: This is a massive addition for the Aces, who will pry Hammon away from the San Antonio Spurs, where she was a longtime assistant under Greg Popovich. The six-time WNBA All-Star has been interviewed multiple times for NBA head coaching gigs. According to the story, current Aces head coach Bill Laimbeer could move into a front office or advisory role.
