NUGGETS NAME D'ANTONI AS NEW HEAD COACH

The Denver Nuggets named Mike D'Antoni head coach Tuesday, assigning him the daunting task of rebuilding one of the worst teams in NBA history.

D'Antoni, who spent seven years coaching in the Italian League, becomes Denver's seventh coach this decade.

General manager Dan Issel made the announcement after the team had gone several months with the vacancy unfilled. It was created when first-year coach Bill Hanzlik was fired following the Nuggets' horrid 11-71 season.
