EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Chuck Person and Quin Snyder have been  hired by the Los Angeles Lakers as assistants to new coach Mike  Brown.

They join John Kuester, the former Detroit Pistons head coach,  on Brown's staff.

Person spent the last two seasons working with the Lakers under  retired coach Phil Jackson. Previously, he spent two seasons each  as an assistant with Sacramento and Indiana, where he played 13  years in the NBA.

Snyder spent last season as an assistant with Philadelphia.  Previously, he coached the Austin Toros in the NBA D-League for  three years. Snyder coached seven years at Missouri, where his  tenure ended in NCAA violations that led to probation and  off-the-court problems with players.
