The Kings have contacted Vinny Del Negro about its head coaching vacancy, per league sources. Del Negro led Bulls, Clippers to the playoffs.— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) December 16, 2014
Owner Vivek Ranadive is still weighing options, per source. Still, growing sense that Sacramento will let Tyrone Corbin finish the season.— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) December 16, 2014
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.
