In a bit of a surprise on an otherwise exciting day, Indiana Pacers assistant coach Jim Boylen is well on his way to joining Gregg Popovich's coaching staff for the San Antonio Spurs according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Boylen moving on will leave Frank Vogel's staff with not one, but two coaching vacancies, forcing something of a wholesale summer not only with the players on the bench, but the coaches as well. Boylen joined the staff as an assistant alongside Brian Shaw in 2011 and brought championship experience along with Shaw, having won two titles as an assistant for Houston.
