After the Kings went down to the Nets 128-119 and dropped to 21-19 on the year, it seems the Sacramento management may be ready to move on from their current head coach. DeMarcus Cousins was visibly upset after the game and was doing his best not to out and out say ‘it’s the coaches fault’. but the message was received. More from The Vertical:
“Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive and general manager Vlade Divac were so livid about a blowout defeat to the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night – the franchise’s sixth loss in seven games – they were strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl, league sources told The Vertical.”
Bobby Jackson, current Kings analyst, didn’t hold back when talking about Coach Karl:

A constant state of change is what Sacramento has been used to these last ten years, dating back to Rick Adelman, and there is no end in sight. How many times can you blow it up before your star player becomes restless and sick of having his talents go to waste with a franchise clearly in turmoil? How many times do you have to change relationships before you finally realize the problems lie with yourself?
Look for a decision to be made during All-Star break.
