Former Wake Forest player and NBA alum Rusty Larue will be joining the advisory board for the Winston-Salem Wolves,
a minor league franchise playing in the East Coast Basketball League this season. The addition of the Wolves was announced by the league earlier this week.
The advisory board will be a key factor for the team to make sound decisions regarding personnel, business development and operations. The team has announced that open try outs are expected in early January, although some closed practices will have started before then. Additionally, the team expects to name a head coach for the 2019 season within the next few days.
Larue played basketball, baseball, and football at Wake Forest University. He later played for the Chicago Bulls team that won the 1998 NBA championship, and has remained involved in coaching at both the collegiate and high school level in recent years.
