Theus to coach D-Fenders

EL SEGUNDO,Calif.– The Los Angeles Lakers’ minor-league team hired Reggie Theus as its new coach.

Theus will coach the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the NBA Development League, the Lakers announced Monday.

Theus was the Sacramento Kings’ head coach for 18 months, going 44-62 before getting fired in December 2008. He then spent two seasons as an assistant to Kurt Rambis in Minnesota before working in TV last season.

Theus played 13 seasons for five teams in the NBA, making two All-Star teams and scoring 19,015 points. He had two successful seasons as the head coach at New Mexico State before Sacramento hired him.

Theus replaces fellow NBA coaching veteran Eric Musselman, who joined Herb Sendek’s staff at Arizona State last month.
