Dave Joerger is making changes to his Sacramento Kings coaching staff.
After Jenny Boucek's departure earlier this offseason -- she joined Rick Carlisle’s staff in Dallas -- the Kings had a vacancy. On Thursday afternoon, they filled the spot with fan favorite Bobby Jackson.
Jackson will work as an assistant player development coach after spending the last three seasons as a collegiate scout for the team.
This is the second go-around on Sacramento’s staff for Jackson, who spent two seasons as an assistant coach for Paul Westphal from 2010 to 2012 after retiring as a player in 2009.
Jackson spent 12 seasons in the NBA, including two stops in Sacramento. He averaged 9.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists for his career. In 2002-03, Jackson was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year with Sacramento when he averaged 15.2 points per game.
