Kings hire Chris Jent as assistant

  •  

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings have hired Chris Jent as an assistant on new coach Mike Malone's staff.

Malone announced the move Monday, citing Jent's experience as both a college and pro assistant.

The 43-year-old Jent joins the Kings from Ohio State. Jent had been an assistant at his alma mater since 2011 and helped lead the Buckeyes to the Final Four in 2012.

He also served as an assistant with Philadelphia and Orlando and coached the final 18 games for the Magic in 2005 after head coach Johnny Davis was let go. Jent was also the director of player development for Cleveland from November 2006 to 2009, before being promoted to assistant coach.

Malone's father, Brendan, will also be an assistant on the staff.
