Breaking down the Sacramento Kings firing of Dave Joerger

Divac fired assistant general manager Brandon Williams earlier Thursday morning, sources said, and planned to meet with players after firing Joerger. The team appears to have a bright future centered around second-year guard De'Aron Fox and rookie forward Marvin Bagley.

The Sacramento Kings finished ninth in the Western Conference this season. Los Angeles had visions of making a deep playoff run when they signed LeBron James last July.

Divac had spent six seasons as a Sacramento player, from 1998 to 2004.

However, it now makes him one of the most attractive options for any team searching for a new head coach. But for now it adds to the uncertainty around one of the league's most confounding teams. But in a somewhat surprising move, Divac has chose to move on from Joerger and fire him with one year still remaining on his contract.

Israeli exit polls show Netanyahu edging ahead of rival
As a result, it will nearly certainly be Netanyahu who is called upon by President Reuven Rivlin to form the next government. The prime minister has served for roughly 13 years, in stints from 1996 to 1999 and again from 2009 until the present.


The Kings' coaching carousel goes on and on. They were in playoff contention late in the season.

After being let go by Memphis, Joerger joined the Kings staff as their head coach.

Even as the Los Angeles Lakers are dealing with the aftermath of Magic Johnson's sudden departure, one of their employees is desired by another California-based National Basketball Association team.

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton could be fired any day now that the regular season has officially come to an end, but it doesn't look like he'll be out of a job for long if that's the case. But all we could do now is hope for the best and be optimistic that whomever the Kings bring in could continue to build upon the solid foundation that has already been laid. They gave up a little more than 115 points per game.
