Ryan Bowen, a former NBA player and most recently a Nuggets assistant coach, will join the Kings as an assistant coach and the assistant director of player development, the team announced Wednesday. In the latter role, he'll report to Dee Brown (also an assistant coach). Bowen worked with Pete D'Alessandro the last two seasons in Denver, of course, and likely fills out the staff. The Kings now have a stunning six assistant coaches under Michael Malone. (In the recent past, the Kings have had 3-4.)
Bowen bounced around the league for 10 seasons, spending the longest stint with the Nuggets. He's an Iowa native and was an assistant coach for Iowa State before rejoining Denver. He's also a fan of the band STYX.
Welcome to Sacramento, Ryan Bowen!
