The opportunity to join Luke Walton’s staff in Sacramento came up very recently while she was at summer league in Las Vegas. She’d previously worked with Kings assistant coach Jesse Mermuys, when they were both on the Toronto Raptors summer league staff, and he recommended her for this position. In addition to being an assistant, she will be a player development coach as well.
