SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Rick Adelman was fired as coach of the Sacramento Kings, an NBA official said Tuesday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the move had not yet been announced, said Adelman will not receive a contract extension after leading the Kings to eight consecutive playoff appearances. Sacramento was eliminated from the playoffs on Friday by the San Antonio Spurs.

The Kings called a news conference for Tuesday, but wouldn't divulge the reason.
