Kings fire assistant coach Walberg

(Reuters) - The struggling Sacramento Kings fired assistant coach Vance Walberg on Wednesday in another sign of discord between the team and head coach George Karl. Walberg was a close ally of Karl, who took over in February last year.

”This was a tough decision made after consideration of what is best for the team moving forward,” Kings General Manager Vlade Divac said in a statement. Sacramento (22-31) have lost eight of their last 10 games and are currently outside the Western Conference playoff spots.
