It appears Lionel Hollins will have an experienced and familiar face at on his bench.

Former longtime head coach Paul Westphal is finalizing a deal to become an assistant under Hollins, a source confirmed Wednesday. Westphal, 63, coached the Supersonics, Suns and Kings over 16 years.

Hollins, who is expected to join Brooklyn’s Summer League team in Orlando on Friday, was an assistant under Westphal in Phoenix from 1992 to 1995, advancing to the Finals once with Charles Barkley as the star.

Westphal’s most recent gig with the Kings didn’t go so well, though. He combined to win 49 games in his first two seasons and was fired seven games into his third.

Hollins also recruited Mavs assistant Tony Brown and Ukrainian national team assistant Joe Wolf to his staff, according to CBSSports. John Welch, who attended the same Las Vegas high school as Hollins, will remain on Brooklyn’s bench. This week Welch has been guiding Brooklyn’s Summer League team, which lost Wednesday to the Sixers, 92-86, without injured players Mason Plumlee (sore left foot) and Jorge Gutierrez (bruised ribs).

Jason Kidd took three assistants with him to Milwaukee – Eric Hughes, Sean Sweeney and Joe Prunty. Lawrence Frank, meanwhile, who is still under contract with the Nets, has reportedly been targeted for a spot on Doc Rivers’ bench in L.A.
