SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KXTL) — The Sacramento Kings officially announced Mike Brown as the team’s new coach in a press release Monday.
According to multiple sources, FOX40 previously reported that Brown has agreed to a four-year deal with the Kings to become the 21st head coach in the Sacramento era, and the 11th since Rick Adelman, who last coached the team to a playoff appearance back in 2006.
In the release, the Kings said the terms of the deal were not disclosed per team policy.
Brown, 52, is making his way to Sacramento from the Golden State Warriors coaching staff.
Brown has served as an associate head coach on Steve Kerr’s staff since 2016. He will continue to remain with Golden State through their playoff run.
Mike has consistently demonstrated his ability to lead winning teams throughout his long and successful coaching career. He has worked with some of the best players in the NBA and is one of the league’s premier defensive minds. I am excited to bring his extensive experience to Sacramento.”Sacramento Kings General Manager Monte McNair
