Luke Walton Hired As Next Sacramento Kings Head Coach

Luke Walton Jordan Clarkson Larry Nance Jr Lakers

Luke Walton is set to be appointed as head coach of the Sacramento Kings, reports said Saturday, April 13 (Sunday, April 14, Manila time) barely 24 hours after he parted company with the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Kings reached a deal with the former Lakers head coach to take over the team through the 2022-2023 season. Walton is the first choice of general manager Vlade Divac. The Lakers announced the news in a statement, freeing up the team to go find a new coach and Walton to find a new team.

Steve Kerr feels for Luke Walton and Kerr shares what Los Angeles is losing by parting ways with Walton.

"That was quick", Kerr said.

The team did not make the playoffs in any of the three seasons.

Candida auris is the multi-drug resistant fungus that has public-health authorities across the world very anxious . While C. auris is resistant to some antifungal drugs, it is susceptible to others that can be used to treat it.

As disappointing as 2018-19 may have been, the mandate with James on board and a handful of new veterans was a substantially different one than the one Walton originally signed on for.

Pace is what propelled the Kings to their surprising finish this season, and Walton is certainly capable of piloting a team that plays fast. "They're losing a guy who knows the game as well as anybody I've ever met". He still had two years remaining on his five-year deal. Walton was an assistant at Golden State for two seasons before taking the helm in Los Angeles.

Sports talk personality Skip Bayless said earlier he hoped Lakers owner Jeanie Buss would keep Walton to spite its star player and Magic Johnson. "They did everything right, I'll say that".

Not many Lakers observers questioned Walton's man-management abilities, but his tactical acumen was widely criticized. Walton's 246 games in charge were the most by any coach in the tumultuous near-decade since the franchise's last championship in 2010.
