Barbosa has been a player development coach with the Warriors since 2020, working alongside Mike Brown. Barbosa played in the NBA from 2003 to 2017, winning an NBA Championship as a member of the Warriors in 2015.
In his introductory press conference Mike Brown had alluded to another move or two pending in terms of finalizing his coaching staff, but the staff should be nearly complete at this point. Brown’s lead assistant, Jordi Fernandez, is currently coaching the Kings in the California Classic. The staff also includes Jay Triano, Luke Louks, and Doug Christie.
Since joining the Kings as head coach, Brown has assembled a coaching staff with a wealth of experience and with whom Brown had previously working relationships. Barbosa continues that trend, and brings championship experience as both a player and as a player development coach.
