  • With Kings exec Vlade Divac landing a new contract what’s next with the fate of head coach Dave Joerger

His first decision of the day appears to be the dismissal of assistant general manager Brandon Williams.

The Kings finished 39-43 and missed the playoffs, but showed promise behind point guard De'Aaron Fox, shooting guard Buddy Hield and rookie big man Marvin Bagley. Los Angeles had visions of making a deep playoff run when they signed LeBron James last July.

There had reportedly been growing tension between Joerger and the front office, while Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton was mooted as a potential successor ahead of Thursday's news.

The Kings have officially fired Dave Joerger, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets. Divac became general manager at the start of the 2015-16 season.

The next coach will be the 10th head coach for the Kings since Rick Aldeman's contract wasn't renewed. No, it's not a great record for an elite National Basketball Association team.

Divac has agreed to a four-year extension to remain with the team, the team announced Thursday morning, hours after the Kings suffered a season-ending loss in Portland.

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. However, much of who they hire could depend on how much power Divac is actually willing to give up.

He has made Miami one of the better defensive teams in the league, but he's far from having head coaching experience.
