Corliss Williamson, who spent portions of eight seasons playing for the Sacramento Kings is reportedly close to returning to his former franchise, this time as an assistant coach.

Since his retirement, the 2002 NBA Sixth Man of the Year award winner has spent the past seven years in coaching, including the head gig at the University of Central Arkansas since 2010.

Now, three years since taking the helm, Williamson is set to return to Sacramento according to a multitude of sources. Big Nasty was seen telling his team goodbye this evening:
