The Aliens had their first season last year and were coached by Nate Archibald. They finished the season at just 3-5.
He’ll now guide a roster featuring Greg Oden, Shannon Brown and Brandon Rush. Rush was the team’s leading scorer (13.5) and rebounder (6.9).
While Bibby has spent the past three seasons as a player in the BIG3 League, the point guard is best known for his time in the NBA. The 14-year veteran spent seven eventful seasons with the Sacramento Kings, leading them to within a game of the NBA Finals in 2002. He also led Sacramento to five consecutive postseason appearances.
The 41-year-old holds career averages of 14.7 points and 5.5 assists per game in 1,001 games played and 950 starts.
This isn’t the first time that Bibby will serve as a head coach of a basketball team. He actually coached a high school basketball team last season.
