Billy McKinney Named Director of Scouting for the Milwaukee Bucks

From the Bucks' website:

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks have named Billy McKinney to the position of Director of Scouting, General Manager John Hammond announced today. McKinney comes to the Bucks with 30 years of NBA experience as a player, assistant coach, scout, administrator or broadcaster. For the last four seasons, McKinney worked as the radio analyst for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“With 30 years in the NBA, Billy brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our organization,” said Hammond. “I respect his strong work ethic and passion for the game of basketball.”

Prior to joining the Timberwolves broadcast team, McKinney served as executive vice president of the Seattle Supersonics and the WNBA’s Seattle Storm. Additionally, he partnered with play-by-play announcer Kevin Calabro behind the microphone to provide analysis for all Sonics television and radio broadcasts.

Congrats to McKinney.  Who will replace him as the team's radio color commentator?  Here's hoping that Kevin McHale decides it's finally time for a change of pace.
