The Kings are not expected to announce the move on Saturday. "This franchise and the city will always be special to me and my family".

Walton had the Lakers at 20-14 on Christmas night after a blowout win at Golden State, and they appeared to be on the verge of coming together.

The Kings showed much growth and improvement in the 2018-19 season, finishing the season with a record of 39-43, a 12-game improvement from the year before.

"I'm disappointed for Luke". But again, he was dependent on circumstances just like all of us. He was sacked Thursday, one day after the Kings' season ended at 39-43, the team's best record since its last playoff appearance in 2005-06.

The Lakers reportedly had no idea what LaVar, Foster and Lonzo had planned until it was nearly too late.

Well, I think it's safe to say I called this one correctly. "The guys fought every night". The Hall of Fame point guard was upset with the team's defense and sluggish start but later told the Los Angeles Times and ESPN that Walton would not be fired barring something unforeseen.

Rondo, who is on the sixth team of his career, praised Walton for his ability to relate to players.

Walton was tasked with one of the most hard jobs in the National Basketball Association this season. He also spent seven years with the Lakers until he was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in 1996 as part of the deal that allowed the Lakers to acquire the draft rights to Kobe Bryant. "They were anxious where they were going to end up".

Kerr spoke about Walton before the Warriors hosted Game 1 against the Los Angeles Clippers, as seen in a video tweeted by Logan Murdock of NBC Sports. News of a signing probably won't break until the 76ers are out of the playoffs.

Of concern, however, is Walton's ability to develop players. It was a decision that had been rumored for a while and Johnson even alluded to it in the press conference when he resigned. Buss decided not to find out whether Walton could continue that progress in the fall with renewed health and a high draft pick this summer. Walton's 246 games in charge were the most by any coach in the tumultuous near-decade since the franchise's last championship in 2010.

Speculation is already centering on James' former coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tyronn Lue, who was sacked by the Cavs after an 0-6 start to the second post-LeBron era.
