Lindsey Harding, who became the first female coach in franchise history, is taking a job as an assistant with the Sacramento Kings, a team source confirms. Augmon, Harding and Hines will join Kings Legend Bobby Jackson, now serving as assistant coach/player development.

Augmon and Harding were given assistant coach/player development roles.

In 270 career WNBA games played, Harding averaged 9.8 points, 4.0 assists and 2.9 rebounds.

She was the first overall pick in the 2007 WNBA Draft. Augmon was a member of the 1988 United States Olympic Team, which captured a bronze medal at the Seoul Olympics. She most recently worked as a player development coach for the 76ers in 2018-19. Harding had two-season stints with the Lynx, Washington Mystics and Los Angeles Sparks before capping off her WNBA career in 2016 with the New York Liberty and Mercury.

Hines brings over a decade of professional and collegiate basketball coaching experience and is known for his basketball development prowess. The team plucked Ime Udoka - considered one of the better assistants in the league - away from the Spurs along with player development coach Cameron Hodges. Hines will work as a player development coach.

Harding is just the latest addition to a growing list of women climbing the National Basketball Association coaching ladder.
