Corliss Williamson joins Kings staff
Corliss Williamson is returning to the NBA, this time as an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings.

Williamson, who was drafted by the Kings with the 13th overall pick in 1995, spent the last three seasons as the head coach at Central Arkansas.

"I honestly couldn't see myself leaving for any situation other than an opportunity to go back to Sacramento," Williamson said in a statement released by the school. "It's a place where I cut my teeth as a rookie in the NBA, spent over half of my career there. It's an area that reminds me a lot of Arkansas, with the people, the fans they have there. It's just a great opportunity that I have now to return there and be able to coach at the highest level."

Williamson is the next piece in a sweeping change for the Kings, from new principal owner Vivek Ranadive to general manager Pete D'Alessandro to Malone. Williamson joins Brendan Malone, Dee Brown, Chris Jent and Micah Nori as assistants in their first season with the Kings.

Williamson, a forward who steered Arkansas to the 1994 NCAA championship, played 12 NBA seasons. He started and ended his career in Sacramento, playing for three other teams in between. Known as "Big Nasty," Williamson averaged 10.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 466 games with the Kings, becoming a fan favorite for his gritty play on the court and generosity off it.
