Where Are They Now: Bryant Stith
Former Denver Nuggets Guard Enjoying Successful Coaching Career
By Aaron J. Lopez, Nuggets.com, 9-6-13
Bryant Stith averaged 10.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in eight seasons with the Nuggets.
After a productive 10-year NBA career, former Denver Nuggets guard Bryant Stith moved back to his hometown of Lawrenceville, Va., with his high school sweetheart and their four children.
The quiet retirement was going according to plan until the new principal at Brunswick High School approached Stith about coaching the boys’ basketball team.
The principal, Lawrence Whiting, had made a list of his top three candidates.
“I asked him what those were,” Stith recalled during a telephone interview this week. “He said, ‘Bryant Stith, Bryant Stith and Bryant Stith.’ ”
Whiting obviously knew his stuff. With Stith on the bench, Brunswick advanced to the 2A state title game for seven straight years. Brandan and B.J. Stith played leading roles on the team as their dad guided the Bulldogs to championships in each of the past three seasons.
The move from high school to college could be another stepping stone for Stith’s eventual return to the NBA.
