Sydney Kings coach coach Andrew Gaze has been appointed by the NBA's Indiana Pacers as an assistant coach for their Summer League campaign.

Pacers officials were impressed with the mentoring talents of the former Boomers' captain after a scouting visit to Sydney earlier this year, News Corp Australia reports.

On top of working with Indiana's extensive coaching staff, Gaze will spend a week at the franchise's hi-tech practice facility in the lead-up to the July 1-6 competition in Orlando, Florida in which teams come together to trial alternative rosters.

"There will be all the on-court training but it will also extend to the infrastructure, their training facilities, player welfare and rehab ... things I want to be able to learn from and hopefully implement at the Kings," Gaze said.
