yes but they have assistant coaches also
Yes, there are usually several assistant coaches on a basketball team. These coaches can be in charge of offense, defense, shooting, playmaking, and other parts of the game. The Washington team in the NBA has an assistant coach in charge of free throw shooting.
At least one for every team
17 including coaches

For every team there is a coach
The number of assistant coaches varies from team to team but here is what I understand the standard most teams carry. There are two assistant coaches on the bench along with the head coach. One assistant is for offense and the other for defense. There is also a goaltending coach who watches the game from a pressbox, "bird's eye" view and sometimes does doubles as the video coach. There is also a strength and conditioning coach. I have heard of teams carrying additional coaches for developing propects and are assigned to the minors and junior teams.
