The Philadelphia 76ers have hired Lindsey Harding as a full time scout.
Harding was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 WNBA Draft.
"I think when you have this goal in mind, your gender shouldn't even matter," Harding told ESPN. "It should be about if you can do it, if you're good, you're experienced, if you know what you're doing and what you're talking about."
Harding officially retired as a player in 2017.
Harding spent last season in the NBA's Basketball Operations Associates Program.
