By Ty Duffy

The Sacramento Bee is reporting that Nancy Lieberman will join George Karl’s staff as an assistant with the Sacramento Kings.

“Definitely I’m going to offer her a job,” Kings vice president Vlade Divac said Thursday. “George (Karl) and I talked about bringing her back after she helped us at Summer League (in Las Vegas). She was terrific. She brings a different dimension. I think is a nice opportunity for her.”

Lieberman said Thursday she will accept the offer. Divac said he expects to make an announcement next week.

Lieberman has coached the Detroit Shock in the WNBA. She previously coached the Dallas Mavericks’ D-league affiliate and had been serving as the team’s Assistant GM.

She will be the NBA’s second female assistant, after the Spurs’ Becky Hammon.
