Former Skyforce Coach Dave Joerger Fired by the Sacramento Kings

Vlade Divac Agrees To Four-Year Extension With Kings Through 22-23

According to Wojnarowski, recently extended general manager Vlade Divac is expected to dismiss the coach in a face-to-face meeting later today.

"The next level is to be a team that is going to be a playoff team and down the road a contender", Divac said.

In the 13 years since the Kings refused to renew the contract of Rick Adelman, the team has hired and/or fired eight head coaches.

The team announced the decision Thursday, one day after finishing its 13th straight losing season - the NBA's longest active playoff drought.

According to The Athletic's Sam Amick, Walton is the "clear front-runner" for the vacant Sacramento Kings head coaching job if he is available. The team appears to have a bright future centered around second-year guard De'Aron Fox and rookie forward Marvin Bagley. And that's probably not what Kings fans want to hear. Sacramento has had nine different head coaches since they last made the playoffs in 2006.

Rumors have connected Sacramento with four potential replacements for Joerger. If the Los Angeles Lakers fire Luke Walton, then one report indicates he'll be the first man general manager Vlade Divac calls to fill that vacant role.

A lot of the speculation is that Divac was looking to make room for Lakers head coach Luke Walton, whose job security has always been in question as Los Angeles is not in the postseason for the 6th straight year.

The Kings have a nice, young nucleus. In fact, he's seen more as a player developer than X's and O's guy at this point.

Given the team's recent moves as the end of the season, it doesn't seem likely that he'll be willing to part with much of it. "This year was a good season but I think we could do more, especially after All-Star break".
