Kings hire ex-WNBA player Harding as assistant coach

Augmon most recently served as the head coach for Jeonju KCC Egis of the Korean Basketball League during the 2018-19 season leading the team to the KBL Semi-Finals and a 32-30 record.

The Sacramento Kings have hired former Duke and WNBA star Lindsey Harding as an assistant coach. Augmon played for six teams over 15 National Basketball Association seasons.

Harding was selected by Phoenix Mercury with the first overall pick in the 2007 WNBA Draft, but she was later traded on draft night to the Minnesota Lynx. Harding joins the Kings after working in player development and scouting with the Philadelphia 76ers.

The former NCAA Player of the Year at Duke played nine seasons in the WNBA and spent time overseas before retiring from the professional game.

Harding was serving as a member of the Sixers' player development staff. Harding had two-season stints with the Lynx, Washington Mystics and Los Angeles Sparks before capping off her WNBA career in 2016 with the New York Liberty and Mercury. The team plucked Ime Udoka - considered one of the better assistants in the league - away from the Spurs along with player development coach Cameron Hodges.

Walton's staff also includes assistant coaches Igor Kokoskov, Bob Beyer and Jesse Mermuys, assistant coach/chief of staff Roy Rana, assistant coach/player development Bobby Jackson, advance scout Jonah Herscu and head video coordinator/player development coach Will Scott.
