Kings interviewing Corliss Williamson, Jeff Hornacek and ... Henry Bibby?!?

Welcome to "Wheel of Misfortune", the hot new game show in Sacramento where we find out what unlucky S.O.B. gets to have a chance to be the next head coach of the Sacramento Kings. Today's contestants include Corliss "Big Nasty" Williamson, a 6'7 former 6th man of the Year from Arkansas.  He's spent the last three years training under the previous winners of "Wheel of Misfortune" in Sacramento, giving him the clear cut experience that other contestants might lack.  He scored high in the DeMarcus Cousins obstacle course and set a record for refs intimidated in the stare down time trials....

Kings to interview Nate McMillan and Elston Turner

With word that the Kings reportedly want to finish up their coaching search sooner rather than later, the names that they actually interview start to grow in importance.  So far that list includes Mike Woodson, Vinny Del Negro and Mark Jackson (and maybe Kevin McHale? Who knows, conflicting info coming from the Bee in his case). Today we've heard two other names be mentioned as getting interviews in the near future, former Kings assistant Elston Turner and current Pacers assistant Nate McMillan. Kings request permission to speak with Grizzlies assistant Elston Turner and was approved, I'm...

Kings to hire ex-Pistons exec Ken Catanella as Assistant General Manager

The Sacramento Kings have apparently been looking at strengthening their front office for a while now, looking to add some more expertise and experience to support GM Vlade Divac as he looks to rebuild the Kings.  For a few weeks at least, we thought that addition would be former Pacers and Bucks exec. David Morway, but Adrian Wojnarowski reported the other day that a deal never came to fruition. The Kings look to have gone in another direction, tapping Ken Catanella as their new Assistant GM, per a tweet by ESPN's Marc Stein.  CSN's James Ham also confirmed that the two sides were...

The Downbeat #1901: King Sized Logo Edition

Can the Utah Jazz's logo redesign get a royal treatment? The Sacramento Kings put out their new logo yesterday.  It looks fresh. Hopefully the Utah Jazz logo design is as fresh as these put forward by the Sacramento Kings.  From the archaic Lion dribbling with the ball to the lion infused with the basketball, it's amazing.  It tells the history of the team and the future. Nike and Adidas even worked together on the redesign. The inclusion of both Nike and Adidas on the project is unusual, reflecting the potentially awkward timing of the Kings' makeover. It's...

Kings targeting 'next week' for head coaching hire, Kevin McHale 'front runner'

The Sacramento Bee’s Jason Jones reported earlier this morning that the Sacramento Kings would like to have their new head coach in place by next week. Considering the fact that they’ve only interviewed a handful of the reported candidate list that is nearly 40-deep at this point, that seems like an unrealistic goal. Jones also reported that the Kings have only conducted three formal interviews thus far, including the likes of Sam Mitchell, Vinny Del Negro, and Mike Woodson. It’s possible the ‘next week’ report has something to do with one of those guys impressing Divac enough to...

Kings contact Kevin McHale about coaching job

Marc Stein reports the Kings and former Houston coach have had exploratory talks There's an avalanche of names out there in the media connected to the Kings coaching vacancy, but its unclear how much of that is agent-driven and how much is substantive. Marc Stein reports that the Kings have actually had a conversation with Kevin McHale about the job as opposed to just some nebulous "interest". Kevin McHale has emerged on the list of known candidates for the Sacramento Kings' vacant coaching job after engaging in exploratory talks about the position, according to league sources. Sources...

Mike Woodson interviewing with the Kings

Another assistant coach looking at a head coaching gig? Doc Rivers has already seen two assistant coaches leave the Los Angeles Clippers for better assistant coaching gigs elsewhere: Alvin Gentry left for the Golden State Warriors while Tyronn Lue left for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Eventually both of those two became head coaches of notable teams: Gentry with the New Orleans Pelicans and Lue with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now Rivers and the Clippers may see Mike Woodson leave the Clippers to become a head coach outright with the Sacramento Kings. The Clippers have given the Kings permission...

New Sacramento Kings Logos Leaked

Thanks to international trademark filings, we get a sneak peak at the Kings' new look. The Sacramento Kings are updating their logo this offseason, as has been reported previously. Now, thanks to SportsLogos.net and international trademark filings, we get to see what the team has in store. Before you react, keep in mind that trademark filings are done in black-and-white. We don't know the specific color scheme yet, but we'll assume there's still purple involved. Via SportsLogos.net, this appears to be the new primary logo. It's a throwback to Kings logos of the past, but with an updated...
