Staying Pat


Despite Little Progress, Kings Likely to Retain Vlade Divac, Luke Walton

Signed through the 2022-23 season, Vlade Divac and Luke Walton don’t seem to be going anywhere.

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Sacramento Kings appear to be staying pat this Summer ensuring that their general manager and head coach are both “very likely to remain” in their current positions.

Reeling off 13 wins in their last 20 games prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the Kings pushed their record to 28-36, good for 11th in the Western Conference. The Kings finished last season with a 39-43 mark and by all accounts appeared to be treading in a similar direction this season. With little hope for a postseason berth this season, the Kings will maintain one of the longest playoff droughts across North America’s four major sports.

Despite butting heads with owner Vivek Ranadive and franchise centrepiece Buddy Hield, the Kings feel that it is best to maintain the front office as is while upgrading the pieces on the court. Whether or not Hield will remain in the fold come next season has yet to be determined.

Hield was benched midway through the season after getting into a verbal altercation with Walton. The first year Kings coach claims the two have since moved past the disagreement and have mended their relationship.
