Only three days after his time with the Los Angeles Lakers came to an end, Walton was announced Monday as the new head coach of the Sacramento Kings.Читайте также: Passenger jumps out of jet to tarmac at Phoenix airport
Walton also has experience as an assistant for Golden State, helping the Warriors win the 2015 title and then leading the team to a 39-4 record, including 24 straight wins to open the 2015-16 season, as interim coach while Steve Kerr was sidelined following complications from a pair of back surgeries. The other coach who is reportedly in the mix is former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue.
"As this job, as a coach in the National Basketball Association, you are 100 percent dependent on your circumstances - the strength of the organization, the momentum, the unity - everything has to be in good order", Kerr said Friday at Warriors practice.
The Kings have a strong young core. In Sacramento, Walton replaces Dave Joerger, who was sacked after three seasons. They posted a 39-43 record under Joerger this season, but they chose to go in a different direction after missing the playoffs for a 13th consecutive season. "We have to play that way". They were second in pace last season before LeBron James joined the franchise via free agency. In fact, since moving to Sacramento before the 1985-86 season, the only winning seasons for the Kings came in Adelman's eight years at the helm, highlighted by a trip to the Western Conference final in 2002.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
