The team introduced Joerger on Tuesday with a press conference, where the focus was on the cohesiveness between the coach and the front office. That's something that lacked during his time in Memphis, which led to his dismissal from there following a first-round playoff sweep.
The Kings' previous coach, Karl, also struggled to connect with the front office, or his own players for that matter. Sacramento's general manager Vlade Divac assured things would be different, stating "it will be players, coach, front office on the same page. It will be a good environment."
Joerger becomes the sixth head coach in six seasons for the Kings, all of whom have had issues with All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins. Due to these issues, the team missed out on the playoffs for a 10th consecutive year, finishing 33-49, which, sadly, was the highest win total since 2007-08. The team is looking to change the entire look of their team, including their arena and logo, in an attempt to turn things around for the better.
