Kings hire Cousins' high school coach
Coach Paul Westphal announced the hiring of Otis Hughley on Thursday.
Hughley coached at LeFlore High School in Mobile, Ala., for seven years. Cousins played there under Hughley before going to Kentucky for one year. The Kings drafted him fifth overall last month.
Hughley has previously served as a college assistant at Wright State, Liberty and Southern. He has also coached for the league's NBA China program and worked at Pete Newell's "Big Man Camp."
