Cavaliers Interviewing Assistants Juwan Howard, Jamahl Mosley for Coaching Opening

Cavaliers Interviewing Assistants Juwan Howard, Jamahl Mosley for Coaching Opening”

A statement was released via the Kings' website and found general manager Vlade Divac explaining the situation. New York Times writer Marc Stein reported, "The prevailing assumption in league coaching circles remains that Walton will nearly certainly be dismissed after the season". "This year was a good season but I think we could do more, especially after All-Star break".

Neither the Kings nor Walton waited long following changes that came just after the end of the regular season.

As the Lakers will meet with three potential candidates to replace Walton, the 39-year-old was introduced as the Kings head coach.

Walton also served as an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors from 2014-2016.

Despite all of the injuries and Anthony Davis trade rumors, Walton was ultimately held responsible for them missing the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season.

The Kings had an opening on the bench as they fired head coach Dave Joerger last week after three seasons and a 98-148 overall record.

"Our new coach, which I'm looking for, has to bring, first of all, that style we had previous year - that's Kings style", Divac said.

The Lakers finished fourth in the National Basketball Association in pace, just ahead of the Kings.

That performance helped him get the job with the Lakers but he was unable to duplicate that success with a roster with far less talent during his first two years and then again this year, even with James on board.

Walton is the 18th coach for the Kings since the franchise relocated to Sacramento prior to the 1985-86 season.

Sacramento had its most wins since going 44-38 in 2005-06 during coach Rick Adelman's final season.
