Finch spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach with the New Orleans Pelicans, including last season as associate head coach. He was an assistant with the Denver Nuggets (2016-17) and Houston Rockets (2011-16) before joining the Pelicans.

Mahlalela coached Raptors 905 in the NBA G League the past two seasons, compiling a 51-42 record. He was an assistant with Toronto for five seasons (2014-18) before coaching in the team's G League team.
