When the ongoing NBA lockout that has delayed the start of the 2011-12 season eventually ends, the Sacramento Kings will have themselves a new assistant coach.

According to a Bobby Jackson account verified by Twitter as authentic, the veteran guard will join the Kings coaching staff this upcoming season.

Jackson was a basketball-smart guard and had a very solid NBA career, mostly as a top backup off the bench. It is no surprise that he will go into coaching.

Jackson’s NBA career began in 1997. He bounced around to many teams but spent many years as a member of the Kings. His career NBA average was 9.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 755 total regular season games. He last played in the 2008-09 season.
