The former Kansas guard, who has 10 years of college head coaching experience (eight at San Francisco, two at Florida Atlantic), has been hired as special assistant to the head coach at Nevada.

Nevada’s head coach is Eric Musselman, who led the Wolf Pack to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 a year ago and has a team expected to vie for a Mountain West Conference title and Final Four berth in 2018-19.

“Basketball has taken me a lot of places. Now I’m in ‘The Biggest Little City in the World,’’’ the 48-year-old Walters said of Reno. He spoke to The Star shortly after Thursday’s announcement of his hiring. “I’m really excited about this opportunity,” added Walters, who started his new job on Labor Day.


I don’t know the rest of the country. I’ve been in the NBA the last two years,” said Walters, who was an assistant on Van Gundy’s Pistons staff last season (he was not retained after Van Gundy’s firing) after spending a season as head coach of the G-League’s Grand Rapids Drive. “They’ve got unbelievable size, unbelievable length, are very skilled, can really shoot the ball and can really defend because of length. They cover so much ground defensively. It’s fun for me to watch how hard they play, how unselfish they are. This team has a chance.”

Expectations are high in the Truckee Meadows. . .
