Luke Walton will get at least one season to prove himself to the next Kings GM.
Vlade Divac has stepped down as general manager of the Sacramento Kings and will be replaced on an interim basis by Joe Dumars. The Kings announced the move Friday, a day after they ended their 14th straight season without a playoff berth. ''This was a difficult decision, but we believe it is the best path ahead as we work to build a winning team that our loyal fans deserve,'' Kings owner Vivek Ranadive said.
While the Bulls are likely locked into their roster for now, they'll be flexible during a summer of 2021 flush with available stars. Firing Jim Boylen puts them in a better position to seize that opporutnity.
