The Sacramento Kings have named Rex Kalamian as the team’s newest edition to head coach Luke Walton’s coaching staff. He will fill the position recently vacated by former assistant Bob Beyer, who recently accepted a new role with the New Orleans Pelicans.
With nearly 25 years of NBA coaching experience, Kalamian brings a winning tradition to a club looking to take the next step. Most recently, he spent time as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers, Toronto Raptors, and Oklahoma City Thunder – all of which made deep playoff runs during his tenure.
He is also very familiar with Sacramento. He was a member of Reggie Theus’ staff with the Kings from 2007 to 2009. While many of us might not recall Kalamian’s time in Sacramento, he apparently made quite an impression on some.
