She will become the first woman to act as the head coach of an NBA Summer League team.

This is the usual plan for young assistant head coaches, as San Antonio’s previous young assistant Ime Udoka was the head coach for the Spurs’ entry in the 2014 NBA Summer League.

We are one more “first” away from this not being news, anymore. Just coaching as usual.

And that is a fantastic thing.
