    If this is true, Boogie needs to get the hell away from Sacramento. Like the hell away.

    The "get the hell away" moment was when they fired a good coach who he got along with while putting up the best season in recent Kings history. The rest of it is just entertainment, and he's locked up for three and a half years.

    One less West team to worry about now. This calls for celebration.

    Incredible how they blew up a functioning team that was on the rise by firing the franchise player's favourite Malone.

    There new owner shouldn't be involved in any basketball talks, first Gay, Stauskas, now this.

    Countdown to Boogie demanding a trade. I'd give them Howard straight up. Never mind the salaries don't match.

    The Sacramento Kings and George Karl are progressing on a four-year contract worth between $4 million to $5 million a season to become head coach of the Sacramento Kings, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
    Tyrone Corbin will coach the final two Kings' games before the All-Star break Tuesday at Chicago and Wednesday at Milwaukee, and – barring an unforeseen snag – Karl will take over as head coach afterward, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    Karl's deal would include a team option on the final year of the contract in the 2017-18 season, sources said. There are still details in the contract that need to be ironed out before it can be finalized, league sources said.

    Kings general manager Pete D'Allessandro and Karl, who have history together in Denver, spoke at length several times in the past few days to solidify a deal, sources said.

    After owner Vivek Ranadive insisted on the firing of Michael Malone – against the wishes of his front office, sources said – the Kings struggled under Corbin and turned toward Karl in the past few days.

    The agents for DeMarcus Cousins – Dan Fegan and Jarinn Akana – have no issues with Karl taking over as head coach and only wanted clarification on the franchise's repeated changing of direction in its coaching search plans this season, sources said. The Kings had initially planned to let Corbin coach the rest of the season, and then conduct a full search of candidates in April.

    Haha, I wish. we would have to pay someone to take Dwight off our hands at this point. Maybe Morey could use some kind of voodoo witchcraft and trick the Kings to give up Cousins. But it ain't happening.

    The Kings are such a bad franchise. I think it may be best for everyone if the Kings and Cousins part ways.

    For some reason, Cousins has indicated that he is not in favor of Karl as the coach. I don't know what he has against Karl. It appears that the Kings are going to hire Karl anyway. It could be entertaining to see what happens.

    It never ends well with George Karl. Things always get messy.

    4 year deal.

    Why don't young NBA players want Karl as coach?
