The Sacramento Kings have made an official decision on head coach Luke Walton.
According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings have fired their head coach following a rough start to the 2021-22 season.
Walton, 41, has been the Kings head coach since 2019. The former Los Angeles Lakers head coach led the Kings to a 6-11 start this season.
"The Sacramento Kings fired coach Luke Walton on Sunday, sources told ESPN. Kings have lost seven of eight games and dropped to 6-11 on season – leaving them 12th in the Western Conference," Wojnarowski reported.
According to Wojnarowski, the Kings have a plan in mind for interim head coach.
"Kings associate head coach Alvin Gentry – a five-time head coach in the NBA – is expected get strong consideration to serve as interim head coach. Walton was 68-93 in two-plus seasons as Kings coach," he reports.
The Kings are scheduled to play the first game of the post-Luke Walton era on Monday, taking on the 76ers.
