The Kings have finalized their coaching staff for Mike Brown‘s first season in Sacramento, according to a press release from the team.
As previously reported, former Nuggets assistant Jordi Fernandez is joining the Kings as associate head coach after working with Brown on the Nigerian national team. Jay Triano, Doug Christie, Luke Loucks, and Leandro Barbosa will also be assistant coaches on Brown’s staff, as anticipated.
Dutch Gaitley and Lindsey Harding will be assistants as well, with Gaitley serving as director of player development. Harding and Deividas Dulkys, whose hiring was previously reported, will be player development coaches.
Robbie Lemons (senior director of coaching analytics and strategy), Charles Allen (head video coordinator/special assistant to the head coach), and Garrius Adams (assistant video coordinator) will fill out the staff, which Brown referred to as a “diverse and talented group.”
Roy Rana, Mike Longabardi, and Rico Hines are among the veteran assistants on former head coach Alvin Gentry‘s staff who won’t be returning to Sacramento for the 2022/23 season. Longabardi joined the Hawks, Hines joined the Raptors, and Rana got a job coaching a team in Japan.

Brown is the perfect coach for the Kings
Is that an insult?
Brown can do well in Sacramento. He’s a D coach. And that always makes a team competitive. Kings got talent. Time for them to play like it. Murray was a great pick and fit for this team.
If the Kangz can’t end the drought it’s time to move on from Fox and Domas and see what they can get to fill out the roster around Murray. Or we can trade Murray for an aging fringe all star and miss the play in like we did Halli. Life of a Sac fan
He’s a good dude. Good luck to him in that train wreck of an organization. About the only good thing about the Kings is Gary Gerould.
I’d be surprised if the Kings win more than 20 games this year
Kings won 30 gms last yr. They can be a .500 team. Time for Fox to live up to expectations. I know Sabonis will.
