Nuggets add Bird to front office staff

On Friday, the Nuggets announced that 11-time WNBA All-Star Sue Bird will be joining their front-office staff. Bird will become a Basketball Operation Associate, according to a press release from the team.

"I'm really excited to join the Denver Nuggets organization", Bird said in the release. "Her resume certainly speaks for itself and as an active player she will offer an extremely unique perspective". She plans to continue playing for the Storm in the summer. Bird also alluded to the fact that she's still under contract with the team.

Bird, 38, is first in WNBA history in games played (508), minutes played (16,173) and assists (2,831).

Bird was originally the Storm's No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 WNBA Draft after a stellar collegiate career at CT.

Sue Bird #10 of the Seattle Storm reacts during game three of the WNBA Western Conference Finals against the Phoenix Mercury at Talking Stick Resort Arena on August 31, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. "It's somewhat reminiscent to what I've actually gone through first-hand in the last couple years". Not that Denver was rebuilding, but all of a sudden you blink, and a couple of years go by, you've got this great young core, talented group that's trying to make noise. For Denver, it's Paul [Millsap]. That's kind of how I view the Nuggets.
