The Kings have continued to restructure the front office and staff this offseason, and are expected to bring in another mind to help head coach George Karl soon.
Sacramento has offered an assistant coaching position to Nancy Lieberman, the team confirmed to CSN on Thursday.
“Definitely I’m going to offer her a job,” Kings vice president Vlade Divac said Thursday, according to the Sacramento Bee. “George (Karl) and I talked about bringing her back after she helped us at Summer League (in Las Vegas). She was terrific. She brings a different dimension. I think is a nice opportunity for her.”
Lieberman has reportedly accepted the position, according to the story.
Lieberman is a former WNBA star and coach, who is a member of the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
She has been a coach of the Texas Legends in the NBA Developmental League, which is an affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks.
Lieberman is the first woman to coach a professional men's basketball team.
Becky Hammon was hired by the San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich a year ago. The NFL Arizona Cardinals hired the league's first female assistant earlier this week in Jen Welter, and the Memphis Grizzlies added Nicki Gross to their D-League staff.
The Sacramento Bee was the first to report the possibility of Lieberman joining the Kings' staff.
