The Sacramento Kings have agreed to hire Nancy Lieberman as an assistant coach, a person with knowledge of the deal confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been announced. In a late-night text message to USA TODAY Sports, Lieberman called Thursday, “a crazy, wonderful day.” For at least the past year, Lieberman had been interested in joining an NBA team as a coach and has worked at high-profile camps last summer instructing NBA players.
