Cavs to interview Juwan Howard, Jamahl Mosley for head coaching position

Former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton wasn't on the open market for very long, as the Sacramento Kings officially announced Walton as their new head on Monday morning.

Walton was previously the head coach for the Los Angeles Lakers the last three seasons.

Sam Amick of The Athletic was the first to report the deal, and NBC Sports California confirmed the details with a league source. The squad will also be looking at some assistant coaches on playoff teams.

Today, the Kings confirmed that Luke Walton will be their head coach moving forward.

Walton, after 11 years as an National Basketball Association player, rose to coaching prominence when he filled in for Steve Kerr as the interim coach of the Golden State Warriors during the 2015-16 season. Between two coaches, Lue appears to be the candidate on paper.

Walton posted an incredible 39-4 record as a fill-in for Kerr, and even took home NBA Coach of the Month honors during his time.

The Cavaliers finished the season with the third worst record in the NBA, and will be one of the three teams (along with the New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns) that hold the best possible odds at having the number one overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Rumors that Walton would take the job swirled just as former head coach Dave Joerger was sacked on Thursday - after the team's best season in 13 years. He then served a season as associate head coach for the Thunder and spent a couple of years in the Spurs' front office before joining the 76ers in 2018-19.

Lue has been out of coaching since he was sacked by the Cavaliers after an 0-6 start to the 2018-19 season.

Sacramento had its most wins since going 44-38 in 2005-06 during coach Rick Adelman's final season.
