A person with knowledge of the talks says the Sacramento Kings and George Karl are discussing a deal for him to take over as the team’s coach.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the negotiations were private. A second person said no announcement was expected Monday night, but that interim coach Tyrone Corbin has been told he will coach the Kings in their final two games before the All-Star break: Tuesday at Chicago and Wednesday at Milwaukee.
If hired, Karl would coach the Kings in their first game back on Feb. 20 at home against Boston. That also would give him a few practice days to help ease the transition.
