Ex-Celtics coach Rick Pitino could return to the NBA. The Louisville coach has shown interest in the Sacramento Kings’ coaching vacancy and has been identified as a candidate for the position. There are rumors flying that he could be ending his time in Louisville with an announcement coming soon (but that’s conjecture at this point).
One gem from the Yahoo article:
Beyond money, the Maloofs would have to sell Pitino’s candidacy to general manager Geoff Petrie. Pitino has insisted that he no longer craves the personnel control that he had with the Boston Celtics, but his ego and power-hungry history can make entrenched league executives hesitant. It’s unclear where Petrie stands on a Pitino candidacy.
Good luck Kings!
