Kings Coach Dave Joerger, Brandon Williams Butt Heads in Practice
The drama between Sacramento Kings head coach Dave Joerger and assistant general manager Brandon Williams continues to escalate.
On Thursday, Joerger asked that Williams does not attend the team’s shootaround as they prepare to take on the Western Conference leading Los Angeles Clippers. Williams subsequently left with Vlade Divac per the head coach’s request. The drama came up following an article published on Yahoo! Sports by Chris Haynes, which sited the future of Joerger. Joerger believes that the source for the article was Williams himself.
Divac attempted to calm both sides last week when he met with Joerger, Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, and Joerger’s agent, Warren LeGarie before the Kings faced Utah Utah.
The Kings are currently outside of a playoff spot, sitting at 10-11, but remain just five games behind the first place Clippers.
