Mike Brown’s coaching staff continues to grow, as Lakers assistant Chuck Person has been brought back to continue implementing the change in defense that he began in the second half of the 2010-11 season, according to SI.com’s Sam Amick via Twitter:

Person played in the NBA for 13 years before becoming an assistant with Cleveland, Indiana and Sacramento before his last two years as an assistant with the Lakers. Known for his outside shooting, Person won the 1987 Rookie of the Year and went by the nickname “The Rifleman”.

Person will be reunited with Mike Brown, as the two served as assistants for the Indiana Pacers under then head coach Rick Carlisle.
