With Jordi Fernandez being named the new Brooklyn Nets head coach and Deividas Dulkys following, Mike Brown is filling some of those spots on his staff for 2024-25. During a Friday press conference, Italian National Team head coach Gianmarco Pozzecco announced that his assistant, Riccardo Fois, would join Sacramento next season as an assistant, per Cesare Milanti of Eurohoops.

After five years in various roles at Gonzaga, Fois joined Monty Williams’ staff in Phoenix from the 2019 to 2021 seasons, when the Suns reached the NBA Finals.

Since then, Riccardo Fois has played a significant role as an assistant coach in the player development program at the University of Arizona. With Fernandez and Dulkys headed to Brooklyn, Fois will help fill their void by bringing his variety of experience to the Kings.
