All year it's been assumed that Walton would be gone sometime this season/off-season and it seems like his time is coming (although he did outlast Magic). The Lakers have been chewing up coaches and spitting them out since Phil, but Luke still looks to be a top candidate for any coaching vacancies this off-season if he's available.

So where does he end up?

Could be Sacto, no other real guesses yet, he could be an assistant somewhere too.

Nowhere. He's trash. He had success in GS bc he was coaching an All NBA roster.

If Monte Williams gets the Kings job, I can see the Sixers reaching out to him. Brett is a good defensive coach with an average offensive coaching plan. Generally our Assistant HC has been a guy with a more offensive look at the game to help push that part of the game.

He's a good coach in some areas, but not in all. He needs a strong support staff to help him.

I could see Luke Walton as a head coach either in Sacramento, Phoenix, Orlando, Chicago, Atlanta or Dallas believe it or not.

Luke Walton and the Sacramento Kings are progressing rapidly on a deal to make him the franchiseís new coach, league sources tell ESPN. A formal announcement is expected as soon as this weekend.

UPDATE: Sam Amick confirms deal is done.




The Kings and Luke Walton have agreed to terms for him to be the next coach, a source tells @TheAthleticNBA. The length of his deal will be in line with that of Kings GM Vlade Divac, running through the 2022-23 season.

This moved extremely fast. It's obvious Vlade was targeting Luke the whole time.

My main concern with Lukeís coaching decisions were putting kuzma at center and josh hart and power forward. Why Luke? Why?

And not revampnig his assistant coaching staff. Besides BShaw, guys like Madsen, Murmuys, Keefe and Moser were garbage. Heard Lakers are keeping Miles Simon for the time being.

This is THE thing with Walton. At least the Kings got him early so he has some time to build his staff. He needs to start with an assistant head coach to run the game rotations and let Walton work on the personalities which is what he's best at.

It is a great deal for Walton to get 4 years!

Maybe Divac will now sign Caruso to a minimum deal?

Then wouldn't they have waited until Luke was freed up first?

Kings were tampering, probably agreed to a deal days before. The Lakers statement even said they mutually agreed to part ways, maybe it was the truth.

Meh ... it's not like everybody didn't already know Luke was getting fired.

Probably because you only have two posts? They didn't used to have a minimum post count to create threads, so I'm guessing they put one in.
