It was announced on Tuesday that the Spurs will be adding WNBA player Becky Hammon to their staff for this upcoming season following the WNBA season. Hammon will be retiring from active competitive after this season, concluding a 16-year career on the court.

“Nothing in my life has really ever been easy. I've always been someone who did it uphill,” Hammon told ESPN. “I'm up for challenges. I'm up for being outside the box, making tough decisions and challenges. ... And I'm a little bit of an adrenaline junkie. Throw those all in there and this was the perfect challenge and opportunity.”

This season, Hammon is averaging 8.6 points and 4.2 assists per game for the San Antonio Stars. She averages 13.1 points and 3.8 assists per game for her career.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Spurs have been given 4/1 odds to repeat as NBA champions this upcoming season. Cleveland is the favorite with 5/2 odds, while the Chicago Bulls have 11/2 odds.
