Kings name former WNBA player Boucek assistant coach

The Kings officially added former Sacramento Monarchs coach Jenny Boucek to the staff as an assistant player development coach, the team announced Friday.

Boucek now has 18 years of coaching experience in the WNBA, starting in 1999 as an assistant coach for the Washington Mystics.

Former Seattle Storm coach Jenny Boucek has joined the Sacramento Kings staff as an assistant player-development coach.

Boucek will be on the bench Friday night alongside coach Dave Joerger and the rest of the staff when the Kings visit the Dallas Mavericks. Boucek most recently coached the Storm for three seasons from 2015-17.

The WNBA season did not go well for Jenny Boucek, who was sacked 26 games into her third season as the head coach of the Seattle Storm. As she told ESPN.com, "The guys have been super receptive".
