Default Re: Kings keep Keith Smart for next season

Smart took over as coach after Paul Westphal was fired Jan. 5 amid a feud with center DeMarcus Cousins and other players openly questioned his direction.

Even though Smart won over players and improved the team offensively by starting Isaiah Thomas at point guard and moving Tyreke Evans to the wing, the Kings went 20-39 after he was promoted from assistant coach and missed the playoffs for the sixth straight season.

Smart has said his focus for this season is to improve one of the NBA's worst defenses while emphasizing a fast-paced offense that shares the ball.
