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

"We would like to thank Luke for his dedicated service over the last three years", said General Manager Rob Pelinka.

Walton is a former player who spent nine of his 10 National Basketball Association seasons with the Lakers, helping the team win back-to-back championships in 2009-10. As only the top eight teams in each conference make the playoffs, the Lakers will miss the postseason.

It might be that Walton did not want to clean out his coaching staff, or parts of his terms with the Lakers were underwhelming, especially this season.

Was moving on from Dave Joerger, their longest-tenured coach since Rick Adelman, the right decision for the Sacramento Kings?

Walton had been at the head coach of the Lakers since 2017.

The length of Walton's deal will reportedly be line with that of Kings general manager Vlade Divac, which runs through the 2022-23 season.

Leaving the Lakers this summer could be great for Walton, who was basically in a no-win situation in LA.

Walton spent three seasons as the Lakers head coach, compiling a 98-148 record in that time, according to ESPN.

Walton said he was grateful to team owner Jeanie Buss for the chance to coach the team, where he won two championships as a player.

Ball averaged 9.9 points, 5.4 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals across 47 appearances (45 starts) during the 2018-19 season. The Lakers announced on March 30 that he was done for the season.

"It affected us a lot", guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said. "Obviously it was frustrating, the injuries, the inability to have a consistent lineup was frustrating and hard for them". His weird rotations and who he would play in crunch time was criticized and the fact that he was the head coach that LeBron was joining should have been a red flag.
