Luke Walton Hired As Next Sacramento Kings Head Coach

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

Walton had two seasons remaining on his five-year deal with the Lakers.

When Ball contacted the team about the planned procedure, general manager Rob Pelinka warned him that following through would void his contract, according to the report.

While Walton's replacement hasn't been named, multiple reports - including Sports Illustrated and Cleveland's NEWS 5 - have surfaced that Ty Lue is the frontrunner to become the next Lakers coach.

"I want to thank Jeanie Buss and the Buss family for giving me the opportunity to coach the Lakers", Walton said in a statement issued by the Lakers.

Wynn Resorts went through a similar critique in Nevada in which it had been passed down a record $20 million fine but permitted to maintain its own casino permit.

The Lakers have been granted permission to talk to 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams about their head coaching vacancy, ESPN reported Saturday.

And Walton might not be out of work for very long.

The Lakers finished 10th in the Western Conference, failing to reach the play-offs for the sixth straight year. In hiring Walton, Kings principal owner Vivek Ranadive is continuing to try to tap into Golden State's dynastic blueprint. Ball then reportedly returned to Los Angeles via arrangements made by the team without having surgery.

Well, I think it's safe to say I called this one correctly. "Obviously it was frustrating, the injuries, the inability to have a consistent lineup was frustrating and hard for them". They believe in Walton to train up their young core, and it's a shame the Lakers didn't. Divac did just that, finding his new coach two days after dismissing Joerger. Williams was also the head coach for the first few years of Lakers trade target Anthony Davis' career.
