Kings hire Cousins' prep coach

I just got word that the Kings have hired DeMarcus Cousins' high school coach, Otis Hughley, as an assistant. Hughley replaces Bryant Gates, the former D-League coach who took an assistant's job with the New Orleans Hornets. Hughley, 46, is a dynamo in Alabama prep coaching circles. He led LeFlore High to six straight regional appearances and the 6A state championship in 2007 before moving only months ago to Blount High in Prichard, Ala. Interestingly, he was a fixture at the recent NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, seated with Cousins' agent (John Greig) and mother (Monique), and often was seen chatting with Kings officials. Now it makes sense.
