Today, Sacramento Kings General Manager Vlade Divac announced that Dave Joerger has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the team. He also played at MI with Rob Pelinka, the Lakers general manager who may be promoted to team president after Magic Johnson suddenly retired. The team appears to have a bright future centered around second-year guard De'Aron Fox and rookie forward Marvin Bagley.
The Kings averaged 114.2 points per game, which was ninth-best in the National Basketball Association and a massive 15.4 increase over their scoring average from the previous season.
Divac might have rebuilt the team, but Joerger led them. But they were still nine games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the eighth seed in the playoffs, and missed the playoffs for the 13th year in a row.
Israeli election sees no clear victor - exit polls
Likud, which gained five more seats compared with the 2015 elections, needs 61 seats to form the government. With Netanyahu's re-election, he's expected to form a coalition with the New Right Party.
Divac has been given final call on whether to retain Dave Joerger, which is one of the Kings' most critical decisions this offseason. Others were quick to criticize the team's lackluster half-court offense and lack of half-time adjustments - particularly on defense - that contributed to many late-game meltdowns.
At the time of his hiring in 2016, Joerger was one of the hottest coaching candidates in the league. Divac became general manager at the start of the 2015-16 season. Its last playoff series victory came in 2004. Heading into the offseason, which path do the Kings take?
Given the young talent on Sacramento's roster, and given the fact that Joerger guided the team to its best record in 13 years, this coming job search will be a definitive moment for Divac and the Kings. We're here to predict the five best bets for where he coaches next. They gave up a little more than 115 points per game.
