SAN FRANCISCO (AP) New Sacramento Kings assistant Nancy Lieberman recalls a conversation with Pat Riley a couple of years back when she explained to the Miami Heat executive how much she wanted to keep coaching at basketball's highest level.

"When I said to him, `You know, I really would like to coach,' and he said, `You would?' and he goes, `Nancy, if you want something you have to tell people what you want,'" she said. "I didn't want to be that pushy broad. I just normally assumed: `Well, I'm Nancy, I've been around the game my whole life, they should know this. They should have a crystal ball and know what I want. That was absolutely horrible thinking on my side. The most important thing is that I started to share what my aspirations were - `I'd like to do this.'"

The Hall of Famer was hired by the Kings on Friday, joining Becky Hammon of the San Antonio Spurs as another female NBA assistant coach.
