Coaching

Kenneth (known Ken or Kenny) Wayne Natt (born October 5, 1958, in Monroe, Louisiana) is a retired American professional basketball player and ex-interim head coach for the NBA's Sacramento Kings.[1] He was a 6'3" 185 lb (84 kg) guard and played collegiately at the University of Louisiana-Monroe and had a three-year NBA playing career. After serving as an assistant with the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2004 to 2007,[2] Natt was named to the coaching staff of newly-appointed Kings head coach and former Kansas City Kings teammate Reggie Theus in 2007.[3] He was subsequently named interim head coach on the firing of Theus, but he himself was fired on April 24, 2009, after the Kings finished with an NBA season-low 17 wins.[4]

Kenny Natt was selected with the 7th pick of the second round (30th overall) in the 1980 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers.[2][5] He played for three different teams until the 1984–85 season.

After his brief NBA career concluded, he played for seven[6] total teams in the CBA and the WBL.[2]

Natt was an assistant coach for the Utah Jazz under Jerry Sloan for nine years until joining the Cleveland Cavaliers' coaching staff in 2004.[7] He has also coached in the CBA and the Canadian NBL with the Cape Breton Breakers, and worked as an assistant coach at Youngstown State University and as a player scout for the Jazz and for the WBL.[2]

In 2003, Kenny Natt was inducted into the Northeast Louisiana State University Hall of Fame.[2] He is the younger brother of former NBA All-Star Calvin Natt.[6]
