Keith Smart And Bobby Jackson, Sacramento Kings Assistant Coaches

The Sacramento Kings have two new assistant coaches they can debut whenever the NBA lockout ends. They should be happy to see one familiar face back, and Warriors fans will be intrigued to see their former head coach back on a sideline. Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area reports.

Bobby Jackson was a former bench star for the Kings during the heyday of the franchise a decade ago. Jackson helped provide instant offense and won Sixth Man of the Year.  Jackson has been hanging around the Kings staff lately and has worked with the players before, so his promotion to assistant coach makes sense.

Keith Smart was the Warriors head coach last season, replacing Don Nelson. Smart led the Warriors to a pretty mediocre season and Golden State decided to part ways with him.  Smart has proven he can handle assistant coaching duties, although it's unclear what his duties will be in his new team.
