Kings Fire Head Coach Dave Joerger

"According to sources, the fate of the Kings' third-year coach rests exclusively in Divac's hands", Amick reported. Others were quick to criticize the team's lackluster half-court offense and lack of half-time adjustments - particularly on defense - that contributed to many late-game meltdowns.

According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Kings general manager Vlade Divac is expected to meet with Joerger today and fire him.

Joerger led the Kings to a 39-43 record this season, which saw them finish ninth in the NBA's Western Conference.

The Sacramento Kings are ready to make another coaching change.

Senior NBA writer Sam Amick is confirming reports that Joerger will be fired Thursday despite the team's 12-game improvement from last season. After all, the Kings host one of the youngest rosters in the entire National Basketball Association so things like this are bound to happen with a youthful team.

Some tough decisions are ahead for Vivek Ranadive and company, one of those decisions being who the head coach will be for the Kings going forth.

Joerger was hired as the head coach in May 2016.

Karl wasn't fired, the players became further disenchanted and that season became yet another in what is now 13 consecutive losing seasons. They were in playoff contention late in the season.

The Kings have a nice, young nucleus. "We have to believe in them and give them a chance to take advantage of their work and talent".
