What we’ve got here … is failure to communicate Why the Kings fired Dave Joerger

The Sacramento Kings General Manager Vlade Divac has announced the Dave Joerger has been "relieved of his duties" as the team's head coach. In August of the same year, the Serbian former All-Star was appointed General Manager of the club. They have several talented young players acquired by Divac - guards De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, forward Marvin Bagley III and centre Willie Cauley-Stein.

Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings went from 27 to 39 wins this year en route to a ninth place finish in the Western Conference and their best record in 13 seasons. Rumors have been heating up for the last 48 hours on Williams' future with the team, but they are not new.

The Sacramento Kings are ready to make another coaching change.

At the time of his hiring in 2016, Joerger was one of the hottest coaching candidates in the league. Heading into the offseason, which path do the Kings take? The 51-year-old has been in the role since August 2015. After all, the Kings host one of the youngest rosters in the entire National Basketball Association so things like this are bound to happen with a youthful team.

The Kings' coaching carousel goes on and on.

According to The Athletic's Sam Amick, Walton is the "clear front-runner" for the vacant Sacramento Kings head coaching job if he is available. But all we could do now is hope for the best and be optimistic that whomever the Kings bring in could continue to build upon the solid foundation that has already been laid. In fact, he's seen more as a player developer than X's and O's guy at this point.
