Former Rockets coach returns to Turner Sports as NBA analyst

A year after his premature firing as head coach of theHouston Rockets, Hall of Famer and Boston Celticslegend Kevin McHale will return to the Turner Sports team as an NBA analyst.

McHale, who helped lead the Celtics to three NBA championships as a part of the original Big Three with Larry Bird and Robert Parish, previously worked for Turner Sports from 2009-11 and served as a guest analyst for TNT's coverage of the 2016 playoffs. He'll return as a member of the studio team for NBA TV's weekly Fan Night alongside Ernie Johnson, Chris Webber and Greg Anthony, as well as an analyst for select NBA on TNT game telecasts.

“My two years with Turner Sports were some of the most enjoyable I’ve had in basketball,” McHale said in a statement. “I look forward to being back with the NBA TV Fan Night team and calling games for TNT, as we share our perspectives on the game in a manner we hope is entertaining for fans.”

“Kevin is one of the most respected basketball minds in the history of the game and we’re thrilled to welcome him back to the Turner family,” said Albert Vertino, GM of NBA Digital and senior vice president of programming for Turner Sports. “He is one of the NBA’s most celebrated players and his insights as a former player, coach and front office executive will add a unique perspective to our roster of leading commentators.”
