The trend of NBA teams hiring female assistant coaches doesn’t appear to be ending any time soon.

According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the Sacramento Kings have hired former WNBA star Lindsey Harding as an assistant coach.

Harding, 35, served in the Philadelphia 76ers scouting department last season.

The former NCAA Player of the Year at Duke played nine seasons in the WNBA and spent time overseas before retiring from the professional game.

Harding is just the latest in a long line of women making their way into the NBA’s coaching ranks.

The Association continues to show itself to be the single most inclusive of the four major sports in North America.
