Monte McNair: Luke Walton Is 'Going To Be Our Coach Next Year' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Sep 24, 2020 5:22 am

New Sacramento Kings GM Monte McNair said that he and Luke Walton are on the same page during his introductory press conference on Wednesday.


"Luke's going to be our coach next year. I'm really excited to work with him. I think we're aligned with our vision and we're gonna start implementing it," said McNair.


Walton went 31-41 in his first season as head coach.


McNair, who was an executive with the Rockets, said he will incorporate ideas of pace and space into his new team.


"In Houston, obviously we pushed some things to the extreme. That was partly due to our personnel there. There are some tenets that we'll apply here. We're definitely going to play fast and space the floor. There's a lot of versatility and talent on this roster. I think that'll dictate how we build the team."

I mean they just hired him last season so yeah that would be stupid to give up on him in just one season. God knows the kings are already paying their older coaches rn.
Trust the Process it is our shot to be a solid franchise again, we are the originals we are the Philadelphia 76ers!

Translation, McNair will fully assess the team before re-tooling -- Walton has at most half a season given how horrendous of a job he has done with this team ( unless the meddling owner steps in again ).
