There were debates over who would be the next coach of the Kings. With a faction of the ownership preferring Mark Jackson, the Sacramento based outfit have decided to hire Warrior’s assistant coach Mike Brown as their new head coach. As per sources, this decision has been made as per the recommendation of GM Monte McNair.
Brown will join the Kings after finishing the play-off season with the Golden State Warriors and icon Steph Curry. he will reportedly sign a four-year deal. His agent has also come out publicly saying that his client will take the job. Usually, when agents come out like this, the deal is as good as done.
One of the key highlights of this appointment is that the Kings have gone according to the decision of the GM. This shows that the ownership is letting the Basketball people make the Basketball decisions.
The job is not at all easy one. Brown walks into a team that has not the made the play-offs in the last 16 seasons. With so many good teams in the Western Conference, there is no guarantee that the next season will be any different.
The Kings have a lot of offensive talent, but what they lack is at the back. brown, who is generally considered a defensive-minded coach, will put a lot of emphasis on strengthening them at the back.
Brown spent six seasons as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He led LeBron-led 2007 team to the NBA Finals, plus was the Lakers coach for a couple of seasons. Brown has made the playoffs six of the eight years of being a head coach. McNair and The Kings are betting on that record.
