In wake of Paul Westphal firing, source says Alex English will be added to the Kings coaching staff headed by Keith Smart.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) January 13, 2012
English had spent 2004-2011 with the Toronto Raptors as an assistant coach and as director of player development before the team decided it wanted to go in a new direction this past summer.
English had his No. 2 retired by the team and is a Hall of Famer. His 25,613 points are good for 16th all-time in the NBA, scoring 21,645 points as a Nuggets player. That record is in no danger of being broken any time soon. Dan Issel is No. 2 with 16,589 while Carmelo Anthony left with 13,970. Nene's 6,585 currently places him at No. 10.
