Kings Add Stacey Augmon Lindsey Harding and Rico Hines to Coaching Staff

In most recent times, the league has begun seeing many qualified women being given the opportunities they have always been denied.

Philadelphia 76ers player development coach Lindsey Harding joined the Kings' staff Friday. Receive comprehensive coverage of your teams and stream the Flyers, Sixers and Phillies games easily on your device.

Augmon and Harding were given assistant coach/player development roles.

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. Augmon was a member of the 1988 United States Olympic Team, which captured a bronze medal at the Seoul Olympics.

After a nine-year career in the WNBA, Harding spent time within the Philadelphia 76ers' player development department working as a scout from 2018 until her recent hire with the Kings.

Harding, 35, played for the Minnesota Lynx, Washington Mystics, Atlanta Dream, Los Angeles Sparks, New York Liberty and Phoenix Mercury as well as stints overseas in Turkey and Russian Federation.

Hines brings over a decade of professional and collegiate basketball coaching experience and is known for his basketball development prowess.

The trend of National Basketball Association teams hiring female assistant coaches doesn't appear to be ending any time soon.

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.
