This could happen fast.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Sacramento Kings Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings coaching search may be over in very short order. According to News 10’s Sean Cunningham, the Kings May finalize their hiring of Luke Walton as quickly as this weekend.

Before hiring Dave Joerger the Kings interviewed over a dozen candidates. The search lasted weeks. The Kings getting their top choice this quickly would say something about how the perception of the Kings has changed. With a solid foundation of players, the Kings job is viewed as desirable for the first time in a long time.

We’ll continue to update as this develops.

Update: Sam Amick has chimed in to confirm.

Update 2: Adrian Wojnarowski has chimed in to say Vlade will be offering Walton the job.

Update 3: Sam Amick says this is Luke Walton’s job as long as the sides agree on terms. Other candidates are being put on hold.

Update 4: Aaaaaaand it sounds like this is already a done deal.
