The Sacramento Kings wasted no time in finding a replacement for fired head coach Dave Joerger, as they have officially hired Luke Walton as their next head coach, according to an official team press release.

Walton was fired by the Los Angeles Lakers after a 98-148 record in three seasons as the helm, and was immediately snatched up by the Kings on a deal that will run through 2022/2023, according to The Athletic’s Sam Amick.

When it comes to the handling of the Sacramento Kings, former Kings’ superstar Chris Webber has faith in his former teammate, and current head of basketball operations, Vlade Divac’s handling of the team.

“Vlade has believed in these guys, especially [De’Aaron] Fox and Buddy [Hield], telling me a long time ago they were going to change the trajectory of the team,” Webber said, according to Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee.

“The great part about it as a Sacramento fan is, I know Vlade, he doesn’t just work for the organization, but he is a fan of the city. He wants it to be great, not only on the court but in the community as well.

The Kings have made marked strides under Divac’s watch, after a chaotic start, and growth is visible.

“And, yeah, he’s going to (turn) it around. He already has. He said, ‘Give me two years.’ He’s done that. Just wait till we give him a little bit more time.”

According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, the Detroit Pistons and the Sacramento Kings are interested in acquiring Gasol from Memphis.

The Grizzlies are trying to deal Gasol, but also trade away Chandler Parsons, who inked a terrible four-year, $94.4 million contract back in 2016 but has managed to play in just 73 games due to injuries.

Parsons has since been sent home by the team.

Gasol has a $25.6 million player option on his contract for next season.
