Kings hope to hire Dave Joerger on four-year, $16 million contract today
Marc Stein of ESPN:
ESPN sources say that the Kings are hopeful today of finalizing a four-year, $16 million deal with Dave Joerger to be their new coach— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) May 9, 2016
This would be a major coup for the Kings, who entered this coaching search with a troubling situation that turned off premier available coaches.
Sacramento can’t immediately alleviate concerns about owner Vivek Ranadivé's direction swings, general manager Vlade Divac’s lack of experience and star DeMarcus Cousins’ moodiness. But money talks.
Money could get the Kings an experienced NBA head coach with a winning track record – at least as long there’s not a late hitch, like the Rockets swooping in.
