Becky Hammon is closing in on a landmark deal to become the next head coach of the Las Vegas Aces, sources told The Athletic. Hammon's deal will be a record-setting contract for a WNBA head coach, sources said.

Hammon, an assistant with the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, made the decision after being pursued by the Aces and New York Liberty, returning to the WNBA seven years after retiring from the league. Current coach Bill Laimbeer plans to step aside for this move.
