LAS VEGAS - Kings coach Michael Malone's coaching staff had some additions for Tuesday's first summer-league practice at Thomas & Mack Center.
Former NBA player Dee Brown has been hired as director of player development and assistant coach, Micah Nori as an assistant coach and Bill Pope as an advance scout.
Brown and Nori join Malone's father, Brendan Malone, and Chris Jent on the coaching staff.
"There's still a couple of guys to be added," Malone said. "The guys we have on board I feel very happy about. I think we have a great staff that complements me and each other very well."
Brown was an assistant head coach for the Detroit Pistons the past two seasons. He also was head coach and director of basketball operations for the Springfield Armor of the NBA Development League (2009-11) and a head coach in the WNBA for the Orlando Miracle (2002) and San Antonio Silver Stars (2004).
Brown, who played at Jacksonville, was drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 19th pick in 1990. He played for the Celtics, the Toronto Raptors and Orlando Magic in his 12-year career, made the All-Rookie Team and won the 1991 Slam Dunk Contest.
"We're thrilled to welcome Dee to Sacramento," Kings general manager Pete D'Alessandro said in a statement. "His experience in the NBA as a player and coach will serve as a valuable asset to our young players in numerous aspects of their development."
Nori worked for the Raptors for 17 seasons, the last four as an assistant coach. Nori also oversaw the scouting department for Toronto.
Nori was a four-year baseball starter at Indiana and captain of the 1996 Big Ten Conference championship team.
Pope worked as an assistant coach and scout for the Pistons the last eight seasons after joining the team in 2004 as an assistant coach and video coordinator.
Pope has 15 years experience as a college coach, and he led Division II Lincoln University in Missouri to the Heartland Conference championship in 2001. He graduated from Kansas.
