The Sacramento Kings are reportedly considering making a coaching change during the All-Star break with coach Tyrone Corbin not expected to last.
The Kings have already parted ways with one coach this year after Mike Malone was fired in mid-season, with lead assistant Corbin then signing a contract through to the end of the year in a bid to bring some stability back to the franchise.
However, it hasn’t worked out as planned and now they are considering another change which isn’t likely to get owner Vivek Ranadive any new fans in the near future.
“Kings ramping up their search for a new head coach, I’m told. No firm timetable, but the All-Star break could be the time we see a switch,” PBT’s Aaron Bruski tweeted.
Corbin has gone 6-18 since being appointed head coach, but it was always doomed to fail after the way in which the franchise opted to get rid of Malone.
The former coach was seemingly getting the best out of center DeMarcus Cousins, but after he went down with viral meningitis for an extended period of time, the Kings’ form went downhill and Malone was axed.
While another change would seem strange, the Kings may well have had their hand forced by the Orlando Magic as their preferred target, George Karl, has been linked with the Magic post in the last two days.
As a result, they may be forced into action sooner than they had hoped and that unfortunately means that the end could be near for Corbin but it will come as no surprise given the way that the franchise has operated in the past.
