    Walton may not be out of work long

    Walton is an excellent coach. What the Magic/LeBron team did to that team was horrific. Aside from having to relocate from Malibu to SacTown (sorry bud), Walton's got to be ecstatic, there are genuine big pieces going forward without any of the Lonzo Ball, LeBron crap, and IMHO, actually a good plan going forward with Divac/Vivek (the one front office ahead of the LA team) and Walton's getting a nicer payday (I'm guessing he gave back some $$ to Lakers and he's getting something like 5 yr/$25 from Kings.

    Man, I don't think Sacramento is any less chaotic than the Lakers. Like, it seemed like they had momentum, exceeding expectations despite the injury to Bagley, and they shitcanned the coach anyway. (They also passed on the consensus #2 pick to take him, which already looks like a mistake, but Bagley does seem like he'll at least be a good player.)

    I'm giving the Kings have having the anticipation to can Joeger after finding out Walton was available and would come aboard. Now if that doesn't happen, then it looks like a stupid move to can Joerger without knowing where you were going next. As for Bagley, I think he's a better compliment to Fox and Hield than Doncic. Of course, sans injury(ies).

    Yeah, agreed that the Kings have a really promising roster and a front office that would scare the hell out of me. I think Luke would be a very good fit but I wouldn't want to work for Vlade.

    I'm guessing Monty Williams gets the Lakers gig.

    Dave Joerger is a better coach than Walton.

    I don’t know anything about Joerger but I do know Walton’s suckitude was masked by the injuries and circus atmosphere enveloping the Lakers since he arrived.
