DALLAS (AP) WNBA player Kristi Toliver, just-retired NBA player Jared Dudley and one of standout guard Luka Doncic‘s former national team coaches were among the eight assistants announced Tuesday for the staff of new Dallas Mavericks coach Jason Kidd.

Darrell Armstrong, God Shammgod and Peter Patton have all been with the Mavericks for multiple seasons. Sean Sweeney previously worked with Kidd in Milwaukee and Brooklyn, and Greg St. Jean spent the past two seasons as a player development coach and advance scout with the Los Angeles Lakers, helping the organization to the 2020 NBA championship alongside Kidd.

Igor Kokoskov was a head coach in the Turkish League last season, but has more than two decades of NBA coaching experience, most recently as an assistant for Sacramento during the 2019-20 season. The Serbia native coaches the Serbian national team after previously coaching the national team of Slovenia, which included Doncic and won the 2017 EuroBasket title.

Toliver is a two-time WNBA champion who spent two seasons (2018-20) coaching with the NBA’s Washington Wizards while also playing for the WNBA’s Washington Mystics. The 12-season WNBA veteran is currently playing for the Los Angeles Sparks, averaging 9.4 points and 2.9 assists in her 19 games.

Dudley is making the transition to coaching after playing for seven teams over 14 seasons. He spent the last two seasons of his playing career with the Lakers, and was part of the 2020 NBA title.
