Kings Shockingly Plan to Fire Head Coach Dave Joerger

On Thursday, the Sacramento Kings fired head coach Dave Joerger after three seasons with the organization.

"Some have speculated Joerger, a native of Minnesota, could be interested in potential head coaching vacancies with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Chicago Bulls", Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee wrote.

The team announced the decision Thursday, one day after finishing its 13th straight losing season - the NBA's longest active playoff drought.

During his time with the Kings, their record has been 98-148. As DJ Siddiqi of CBS Sports writes, he's had bad luck despite decent success as an National Basketball Association head coach.

The Kings' coaching carousel goes on and on. Furthermore, the Kings haven't made the playoffs in 13 seasons. Before he arrived in Sacramento, the franchise hadn't won 38 games since 2007-08. He went 32-50 and 27-55 in his first two seasons, then led Sacramento to a 39-43 campaign in 2018-19.

Joerger is as qualified, if not more so, than numerous betting favorites to take over in Los Angeles next season. We're here to predict the five best bets for where he coaches next.

A separate ESPN report revealed there has been growing tension between Joerger and the front office, while The Athletic noted there has been a trust issue between Joerger and assistant general manager Brandon Williams for much of the season. They gave up a little more than 115 points per game.

If Joerger is not retained, expect the Kings to once again jump into a deep dive into the NBA's coaching circle. Apparently, that wasn't good enough to save Dave Joerger's job.
