From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James Staton "Country" King (born February 7, 1941 in Tulsa, Oklahoma) is a retired American professional basketball player and former college coach.

A 6'2" guard from the University of Tulsa, King was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 1963 NBA Draft. King played ten NBA seasons (1963-1973) with four teams: the Lakers, the San Francisco Warriors, the Cincinnati Royals, and the Chicago Bulls. He represented the Warriors in the 1968 NBA All-Star Game, and he retired with 4,377 career points.

King later coached the Tulsa Golden Hurricane from 1975 to midway to through the 1979-1980, when he resigned after four and a half largely unsuccessful seasons. The Golden Hurricane retired King's number #24.
