  • Sacramento Kings: 5 candidates to replace Dave Joerger as head coach

League sources, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the situation, told The Sacramento Bee that Divac reached out to Walton in the first hour after his departure from the Lakers was announced.

Shortly after the news broke, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked about the move and gave his thoughts on Walton, his former assistant coach and good friend.

One of the final bits of drama during Magic Johnson's tenure as president of the Los Angeles Lakers involved the team nixing unauthorized surgery on Lonzo Ball's ankle arranged by Ball's former business partner Alan Foster, The Athletic reports.

Sports talk personality Skip Bayless said earlier he hoped Lakers owner Jeanie Buss would keep Walton to spite its star player and Magic Johnson. "We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward".

Walton, a native of Los Angeles, has spent the majority of his career, both as a player and as a coach, with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Walton was sacked following a disastrous season for the Lakers. They're losing a guy who knows the game as well as anybody I've ever met. I said Walton wouldn't be unemployed long after leaving the Lakers, and it took less than 48 hours for him to get a new job. How much influence he wields in this power vacuum with LeBron James and Rich Paul in the picture will determine how the rest of this LeBron-Lakers marriage plays out.

"They came into work every day, no matter what criticism they were under, no matter what scrutiny they were under, they came in, watched hours of film, whether it was on us or other teams, next opponents", Josh Hart said Wednesday of Walton and his staff.

Well, I think it's safe to say I called this one correctly.

The Kings fired head coach Dave Joerger on Thursday.

James played in 55 games this season and averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game.

As a coach, however, it never seemed to be stable with Walton at the helm.

Former Cleveland head coach and Raytown star Tyronn Lue is apparently the front runner for the position Of course he's taken the Cavs to three straight National Basketball Association finals and a championship in 2016.
