The Stockton Kings are making history.
On Tuesday, the team announced Lindsey Harding as the team’s next head coach. Previous head coach Bobby Jackson departed the team earlier this summer to join Nick Nurse’s coaching staff in Philadelphia. Jackson spent the last two seasons with the Stockton Kings, leading the team to a 25-7 record last season.
The Stockton Kings also announced the promotion of Anjali Ranadivé from Stockton Kings Assistant General Manager to General Manager. This is the first time in G League history that two women will lead a G League affiliate.
Former Stockton Kings GM Paul Johnson is set to join the Sacramento Kings front office.
