Default Kings hire Paul Westphal as new coach


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.
