Peter (Pete) E. Myers (born September 15, 1963 in Mobile, Alabama) is an American former professional basketball player and is currently an assistant coach for the Chicago Bulls.


NBA career

Myers played in the NBA from 1986 to 1991 and also from 1994 to 1998. A 6' 6" guard for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, he was drafted in 1986 by the Chicago Bulls in the 6th round (120th overall). He played briefly in both the CBA (including the Rockford Lightning for most of 1987-88) and the Italian League (for Aprimatic Bologna a.k.a. Mangiaebevi Bologna in Serie A2 in 1991-1992, Scavolini Pesaro in 1992-1993 and Polti Cantù in 1997 (reached the Italian Cup finals)) and played for seven NBA teams, including the Bulls (1986-87 and 1993-95) and the New York Knicks (1989-90 and 1998). He became the Bulls' starting shooting guard after the retirement of Michael Jordan in 1993, and averaged a career-high 7.9 points per game that year.


Myers joined Chicago’s coaching staff on December 28, 2001. Prior to joining the coaching staff, Myers spent two seasons as a scout. He became the interim head coach for two games when Bill Cartwright was fired in 2003. When the Bulls hired Scott Skiles, Myers went back to his regular duties at assistant coach. When Skiles was fired in 2007, Myers was named once again the interim head coach for one game before Jim Boylan became the head coach for the rest of the season.


Myers is one of five former UALR players to make it to the NBA, and is one of just three to play in more than 25 NBA games. The others are Derek Fisher and Carlos Rogers.
