Kings fire interim coach, four assistants

SACRAMENTO ” The Sacramento Kings have fired interim coach Kenny Natt and his four assistants after the club finished with the NBA’s worst record.

Natt, a longtime assistant for Jerry Sloan and Mike Brown, was promoted after Sacramento fired Reggie Theus early in the season. Natt went 11-47 in charge of the Kings, who finished with a 17-65 record.

Natt wasn’t thought to be in the Kings’ long-term plans, and the club formally announced it wouldn’t pick up his contract option for next year. Sacramento also fired assistant coaches Rex Kalamian, Jason Hamm, Randy Brown and Bubba Burrage.



The Kings will be looking for their fourth coach since Rick Adelman was fired in 2006 after eight straight playoff appearances.
