Six weeks after hiring former Lakers head coach Luke Walton to the same position, the Kings have begun filling out his coaching staff.
A source confirmed to NBC Sports California's James Ham that Sacramento hired multiple assistant coaches Wednesday, including Jesse Mermuys, Roy Rana and Bob Beyer.
Just got into Toronto - confirming Kings have hired assistant coach Jesse Mermuys (as expected), as well as assistants Roy Rana and Bob Beyer. Bobby Jackson retained as an assistant player development coach. Mermuys and Jackson have been helping out all week at prospect workouts.— James Ham (@James_HamNBCS) May 29, 2019
As Ham notes, both Mermuys and Bobby Jackson have been assisting with the prospect workouts the Kings have been hosting at their practice facility. Sacramento doesn't possess a first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, but the Kings do have three second-round selections -- No. 40, No. 47 and No. 60 overall.
Walton was accused of sexual assault shortly after being hired by Sacramento. The Kings and the NBA's joint investigation remains ongoing.
