Harding Makes History, Tabbed 2023-24 NBA G League Coach of the Year


DURHAM — Less than a year after making history as just the second woman all-time to be named the head coach of professional men’s basketball team in the U.S., former Duke woman’s basketball standout Lindsey Harding has cemented herself in the history books once again as she was tabbed the 2023-24 NBA G League Coach of the Year on Tuesday. With the honor, Harding becomes the first head coach in Stockton Kings history to be named the NBA G League Coach of the Year, as well as the first woman and woman of color to achieve the feat.

In her first season at the helm of the Stockton Kings, Harding led the team to a 24-10 overall record – tops in both the Western Conference and G League this season. The Kings, who clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the program’s third playoff appearance in Stockton history, led the NBA G League in three-point field goal percentage (38.3%) while also finishing third in field goal percentage (48.5%) and seventh in assists per game (26.9).

Harding will be presented with the Dennis Johnson Trophy during a pregame presentation at Adventist Health Arena by NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim before Thursday’s semifinal game at 7 pm PT.
