ANALYSIS: The Kings are 6-11 and 12th in the Western Conference after dropping seven of their last eight contests. Since being hired in 2019, Walton went 68-93 with Sacramento as head coach. He has spent six full seasons leading NBA teams as the full-time head coach (he led Golden State to a 39-4 record as an interim head coach in 2015-16), and has yet to compile a winning season in any of them.

Wojnarowski also reports that associate head coach Alvin Gentry is expected to get "strong consideration" to fill in as interim head coach.
