Kings hire Paul Westphal as new coach

Quote:

Paul Westphal has agreed in principle to become the Sacramento Kings’ head coach, two league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

After Los Angeles Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis wanted more time to consider the job, Kings management turned to Westphal.

After previously coaching the Phoenix Suns and Seattle SuperSonics, Westphal worked as an assistant for the Dallas Mavericks before taking a consulting job in the front office.

Boston Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau pulled himself out of consideration for the job earlier on Tuesday.

Westphal was 267-159 in seven seasons as a head coach.


Congrats :applause:

i guess 'dont get ahead of yourself' may have been a bit much...

granted it's absolutely not a bad move, it's decent - but he hasnt coached since 2000 and he's purely offensive minded....depends on who he can surround himself with for assistants...

that said - i think it's still a positive move because it looks like we can at least be a fun team to watch, if not a winning team.

I'm excited about this hiring, I wasn't excited about Muss. I was happy with Reggie, I thought he was making strides with this lackluster roster we have. I heard rumors he might hire Paul Silas as an assistant, I love this rumor. Westphal has the potential to be the best thing to happen to the Kings since Adelman was hired. On the other hand he could suck, but can it get any worse than it already is? He also gets a high draft pick to work with, I hope Petrie works closely with Westphal in the decision of who we take. If we get Rubio running Westphals offense, we might have something fun to watch again. LOOK OUT!! uh oh :rockon:
