Walton replaces Dave Joerger, who was sacked on Thursday after he compiled a record of 98-148 with the Kings. And while it may seem like the job is already down to two people, there could always be the sleeper pick, late-fire option that the Lakers consider.
The writing pretty much has been on the wall for a while, but Luke Walton no longer is head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. Los Angeles missed the playoffs in all three campaigns.
A move to Sacramento then, with its young, raw roster, may be a better fit for Walton heading forward.
The team did not make the playoffs in any of the three seasons.
Walton was hired by the Lakers in 2016 after Byron Scott piloted the iconic franchise to its worst season ever, a 17-65 train wreck in Kobe Bryant's final season. The swift job acceptance follows a disappointing finish to a season with large expectations following the acquisition of LeBron James. Luckily for Kerr, the state of the Warriors is the polar opposite of that of the Lakers. Pelinka called Walton leaving a mutual decision.

Now, for the fifth time since Phil Jackson last sat on the Lakers' bench in 2010-11, the Lakers will be looking for a new head coach to attempt to revive the proud franchise and take it to the postseason for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
Like Walton, Joerger also had a 98-148 coaching record in three full seasons. "They did everything right, I'll say that". They're losing somebody who players believe in, players want to play for. The club is likely to resume its pursuit of New Orleans Pelcians star Anthony Davis and there are premier free agents such at Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to chase as well.
While Walton and Johnson - who surprisingly quit in impromptu fashion Tuesday night - are out, GM Rob Pelinka is expected to stay on board.
