Kings Fire Luke Walton

I think he’s been on the market for a while… and the price ain’t high. They tried to trade Buddy for Kuzma and it didn’t work out. My wonder is do they do Fox for Ben Simmons. Fox has now had enough bad years that I think he may have had one outlier shooting year and maybe he’s not the player we thought.

The one guy that we’d have some interest in is Harrison Barnes but Bogey plus a first in like 2029 plus Butler is not gonna get that done. Barnes may get moved if they go into a tear down. It’s weird cuz it’s not built up very much so what are you even tearing down.
The thing with Marvin Bagley is that he sucks. People need to zoom out from where he was selected in the draft and his nominal stats in years 1-3, and zoom into his everything stats this year and that THE KINGS have been worse with him on the floor since day 1.

Bogey + stuff for Harrison Barnes would be a dream but I can’t see a scenario where that happens.

In any case, trading for Ben Simmons, tanking their asses off, gutting the organization, and selling to an ownership group that wants to move the team to Seattle sounds like proper initial steps to doing a proper rebuild for an organization who was only ever good once, and only for a couple of years a generation ago.

he HAD to go...

Lost the lockerroom for sure...


Chimezie Metu starting at PF with Bagley 3rd string is not what that team needs..


Fox also not playing well really so far this season.

I seem to recall in the 90’s the jazz played two teams back to back that fired their coach right after getting beat down by the jazz, so this isn’t new.

I'm curious to see what Gentry can do with this group. Almost a certain guarantee it'll be better than what Walton did.

Gentry has had a lot of HC jobs with different teams, pretty sure he would be on the list of getting fired after playing the Jazz.

He seems like a coach that the players really like and in his first 1-2 yrs the team improves but then flattens out and he gets fired, seems to me he is perfectly made to be the main assistant HC.
