Kings would reportedly have interest in Luke Walton as head coach

Luke Walton

The Sacramento Kings are reportedly considering the possibility of making a coaching change, and they may be waiting to see what happens with the Los Angeles Lakers before they make a final decision.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Kings would have interest in Luke Walton if the Lakers end up firing him.

A lot of this is speculation, as it seems like both teams remain legitimately undecided about their own coaching situations. It has widely been assumed that Walton would be fired following the season, but there have been indications that Magic Johnson’s abrupt departure from the Lakers could have an impact on that situation.

As for Kings head coach Dave Joerger, Sacramento GM Vlade Divac was just signed to a contract extension through the 2022-23 season, and he may not want to bring Joerger back next year. The possibility of bringing in Walton may be what inspires Divac to dismiss Joerger.
