SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -The Sacramento Kings hired Shareef Abdur-Rahim as an assistant coach Wednesday, a week after the veteran forward retired because of a persistent knee injury.
The 31-year-old Abdur-Rahim will join coach Reggie Theus' staff after missing most of last season because of knee problems. Abdur-Rahim retired Sept. 22, shortly before the start of his 13th NBA season.
Abdur-Rahim played for Vancouver, Atlanta, Portland and Sacramento during his career, making one All-Star team and winning an Olympic gold medal for the American team in 2000.
