The Kings reportedly planned to fire George Karl in the coming days.
Then, Sacramento general manager Vlade Divac met with Karl and changed course.
So, Karl must feel secure, right?
Divac on The Grant Napear Show, as transcribed by Sactown Royalty:
If there’s a power struggle between Karl and DeMarcus Cousins – and there’s evidence of one – why would Cousins (or any players against Karl) let up now? Perhaps, Divac is more committed to Karl than that sounds, but by saying “for now” he opens the door to more campaigning for Karl’s ouster.
This is the worst vote of confidence I’ve ever seen.
As it has for months, Karl’s firing still feels inevitable before his contract expires.
