Bonzi Wells, the No. 11 overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft, is joining coach Damon Stoudamire’s staff at Georgia Tech, according to a release from LeMoyne-Owen College.
Wells, 46, coached LeMoyne-Owen for the past two seasons and was 34-22 at the Memphis, Tennessee, school that competes in Division II.
“I am extremely grateful for LeMoyne-Owen College and my athletics director William Anderson, he gave me such a great opportunity,” Wells said in the release.
A Ball State graduate, Wells spent 10 years in the NBA and played for Portland, Memphis, Sacramento, Houston and New Orleans. He will join a coaching staff that already includes associate head coach Karl Hobbs and assistant coaches Terry Parker and Pershin Williams.
