George Karl Discusses Interest In Kings Coaching Vacancy

George Karl did a quick hitter on NBA Tonight to discuss his possible interest in the Sacramento Kings head coaching position.

It took all of 5 mins after the announcement that Michael Malone had been released of his duties, for George Karl's name to emerge as the most likely candidate to step in. And that's something Kings fans seem to be pretty okay with.


Late last night, Karl called into NBA Tonight to discuss the now vacant coaching position in Sacramento, and he had some pretty interesting things to say...

Now this is just my interpretation, but I think it's pretty clear "Swaggy" wants to return to the NBA... and soon. Given his existing ties to the front office, and meshing offensive philosophies, it would also appear that Sacramento is a good fit.  Knowing that Ty Corbin isn't likely the longterm solution, I don't see any reason to prolong the process. And for my money, I don't see how you can do much better than one of the winningest coaches in NBA history.  Karl mentioned that the two sides have yet to discuss anything, but If his interest is real the front office should get him in as soon as possible.

What do you guys think?
