Dulkys Named To Sacramento Kings Coaching Staff

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (seminoles.com) – Deividas Dulkys, who was a senior leader on Florida State’s 2012 ACC Championship team, has been named as a player development coach for the Sacramento Kings.  Dulkys was an assistant coach for the Memphis Hustle – the G League affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies – during the 2021-22 season.

Dulkys joins the King’s staff following his one season with the Hustle, and following a nine-year professional career playing overseas.  His professional career included stops in his home country of Lithuania, Poland, Turkey and Spain.  He was the top scorer and named as an All-Star in the Polish Basketball League in 2014.  Dulkys retired as a player in 2021, playing his last season in Spain.

Dulkys was an assistant coach for the Memphis Hustle during the 2021-22 season.  The Hustle narrowly missed the G-League playoffs in his only season.

Dulkys was a mainstay during his collegiate career for the Seminoles (2009-12).  He helped lead the Seminoles to the first two ACC Tournament championship game appearances in school history (2009 and 2012) and ranks third in school history for both 3-point field goals made (203) and attempted (572).  Dulkys averaged 6.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.5 3-point field goals made in 131 career games.  Florida State played in the NCAA Tournament in each of his four seasons and advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2011.

One of Duklys’ most memorable performances came in a 32-point performance against North Carolina on January 14, 2021 when he made a career-high eight 3-point field goals – the most 3-point shots made in an ACC game by a Florida State player.
