Report: Ex-Warriors big man hired to work in video room


Hilton Armstrong entered the NBA as the No. 12 overall pick in the 2006 draft.

He now works for the Warriors.

Armstrong is a part of Golden State's video room.

"He’s been around the Summer League team during its practices and games in Sacramento and Las Vegas the last week, learning the ropes as he begins his coaching career," The Athletic's Anthony Slater writes.

Armstrong appeared in 15 games for the Warriors during the 2013-14 campaign -- his last in the NBA

The 6-foot-11 center that same season suited up in 32 games for the Santa Cruz Warriors, averaging 12.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.8 blocks.

He was a G League All-Star and a Second-Team All-G League selection (it was called the D League at the time).

"He has the most fun he can. He rides his bike to the arena each day and always wears a smile," Keith Schlosser of SB Nation wrote in March 2014. "The fans love him and the team appreciates his talent and veteran presence."
