The #Sacramento Kings will enter this season as a rebuilding team after they traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans last February. This offseason, apart from their #NBA roster they also made moves to their coaching staffs. With the NBA regular season drawing near, the Kings fans can only hope that De'Aaron Fox can become a franchise player in the future.

Kings acquire 2019-2020 option on head coach

An integral part of a rebuilding team is the consistency of the team's coaching system and the consistency of the team's general manager. WIth the Kings trading away DeMarcus Cousins they now look to enhance and develop their young players like De'Aaron Fox, Willey Caulen-Stein, and Buddy Hield.

They also plan on sticking to the coaching system already developed for the next couple of years. Ailene Voisin of Sacbee.com has reported that the Sacramento Kings have picked up the 2019-2020 team option of David Joerger.

Coach Joerger entered the NBA coaching scene when the #Memphis Grizzlies hired him as an assistant coach under Marc Ivaroni in 2007. Later in 2010, he was assigned as the team's defensive specialist under Lionel Hollins. Since then the Memphis Grizzlies became one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. From being the 24th most defensive efficient team in 2010, they quickly climbed up to 9th in 2011, 7th in 2012, and 2nd in 2013. With Joerger's success and the departure of Lionel Hollins, Joerger was hired as the head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies on June 27, 2013. He had a record of 147 wins and 99 losses before getting signed by the Sacramento Kings on May 9, 2016.

Sacramento now has a life coach for next season

Blake Ellington of Sactown Royalty has reported that the Sacramento Kings have hired Galen Duncan as vice president of the Kings academy and professional development. Duncan spent the last decade as senior director of player development with the Detroit Lions. Duncan said that he considers himself as a life coach rather than a sports psychologist. Duncan will offer his help to the players with regards to their finances, off-court opportunities, and personal counseling.

Duncan added that these young NBA players need someone to talk to because most of them are new to the environment and for some of them is the first time they will be away from their families. Duncan wants to be able to mentor and help the Sacramento Kings, especially the young ones, to have a good transition from college to the professional career.
