Default Kings Fire Reggie Theus; Kenny Natt named interim coach

Update: The firing is official: http://www.insidehoops.com/kings-fir...s-121508.shtml

Earlier:

Quote:
The Sacramento Kings fired coach Reggie Theus on Monday morning, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Assistant Kenny Natt was named interim coach and will coach the Kings on Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Theus’ top assistant, Chuck Person, was fired too.

Theus’ dismissal had been imminent. Sources say he had alienated not only his players, but general manager Geoff Petrie and the owners, Joe and Gavin Maloof.

What's the point, we're rebuilding anyways..

Great... Fire Rick Adelman for a poorer version of him in Eddie Jordan.

He needs to return to the college ranks,he could have much more success there preparing players for the NBA.

This exposure in the NBA will help him get a better job than New Mexico State.

Question is whether Eddie Jordan will move west to Sacramento or head north to Philadelphia.

Or maybe the Kings will sign Avery Johnson.

It's not a panic button. Everybody knew the Kings were a lottery team this year, it's just they don't like the guy at all and want another coach.

Kevin Martin has been injured for half (maybe a little more) of the season. They decided to trade Ron Artest for next to nothing. And it must be Reggie Theus' fault.

Again, it's not so much the record (because the team has been injured), but it's more to do with how he coached the youth during that time, and apparently the owners just don't like the guy. I hope they don't become like Al Davis; going from coach to coach, but they really screwed themselves when they fired Adelman.

NBA coaches are an endangered species. This was a bad move. He didn't put this team together, and his key players missed games due to injury and suspension. Bad move.

He's better off without those 12 losers. The Kings stink. I still can't believe they beat the Lakers.

Stefanski shot down the Eddie Jordan/Philly rumors saying "he hasn't contacted anyone outside of the organization and Tony Dileo is the coach for the remainder of the season."

That was just Stephen A Smith talking out of his ass. No wonder the Philadelphia Inquirer didn't want him anymore.

Hmmm, I believe I said this was gonna be the next coach to go when Mo was fired? Next is Iavaroni, then Dunleavy
