Spurs assistant Becky Hammon will be the first woman to serve on an All-Star Game coaching staff.
Hammon, who was named the first full-time female assistant coach in NBA history in 2014, was selected by Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich to serve on the Western Conference staff in the midseason game.
Hammon, a former WNBA star for the New York Liberty and San Antonio Stars, became the sixth member of the Liberty’s Ring of Honor in August.
The Spurs currently have the second-best record in the league at 39–7.
