Luke Walton does not have a stretch provision in his contract with the Sacramento Kings, which would not allow the team to spread the remaining $11.5 million on his contract over time.
Coaching contracts often include this kind of stretch provision.
The Kings have lost approximately $100 million due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which could factor into their decision making on Walton's future.
Walton maintains a good relationship with Monte McNair and with several key players.
Walton is the fifth head coach of the Kings since Vivek Ranadive bought the team in 2013.
