Kings contact Vinny Del Negro for coaching vacancy

USA TODAY Sports

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated announced on Twitter today that the Kings have contacted former Bulls and Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro about their head coaching vacancy.

Del Negro, a former Kings player, has a 210-184 career record in five seasons as a coach, having last coached the Los Angeles Clippers to 56 wins in the 2012-13 season before being replaced by Doc Rivers.  Del Negro's teams haven't been noticeably uptempo however, as they were in the bottom 10 in pace in his last two seasons with the Clippers and the fastest a team of his has been was his rookie year in Chicago where they finished 10th in pace.
