SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento Kings hired Kenny Natt on Saturday to be an assistant coach, reuniting him with former teammate Reggie Theus.

Natt and Theus were teammates on the Kings in 1984-85, when the club played in Kansas City. Theus was hired last month to be Sacramento's head coach.

Natt was an assistant coach with the Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers this past season and had been with Cleveland since June 2004. He previously spent nine seasons with the Utah Jazz.
