LOS ANGELES, Alaska, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Reggie Theus, a two-time All-Star while in the NBA, Wednesday was named a volunteer assistant coach at Cal State-Los Angeles.

Theus, a Los Angeles native and product of Inglewood High School, will assist head coach Dave Yanai.

"Obviously, Reggie brings a tremendous amount of playing experience with his collegiate and lengthy professional career and having been voted to the NBA's All-Star Team," Yanai said. "He will be an invaluable teacher on the practice floor as well as an experience coach on game day."

Theus, 45, spent 13 seasons in the NBA with Chicago, Kansas City-Sacramento, Atlanta, Orlando and New Jersey. He was runner-up for Rookie of the Year honors in 1979 and made All-Star appearances in 1981 and '83.

When he retired following the 1990-91 season, he ranked 22nd on the league's all-time scoring list with 19,015 points, averaging 18.5 per game. He spent one season in Italy before serving as an NBA television analyst.
