Kings owner reportedly courting Calipari again


DeMarcus Cousins’ relationship with Sacramento Kings head coach George Karl has never been great, but over the summer, it looked like the two were attempting to patch things up. Well, not anymore. According to The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre, Cousins cussed Karl out in the locker room following Sacramento’s loss to San Antonio Monday Night.

Boogie having issues with Karl is not exactly surprising news, but in McIntyre’s article, he mentions growing buzz that the Kings’ front office will oust Karl and owner Vivek Ranadive has one coach in mind to replace him: John Calipari.

Adrian Wojnarowski reported in June that Ranadive was interested in Calipari, and that interest has developed into full-blown man crush in recent months. The Kings over-drafting Willie Cauley-Stein 6th last summer was mostly due to Ranadive’s friendship with Calipari. Ditto the signing of Rajon Rondo.

In early October, The Big Lead has learned that Ranadive cleared everything off his schedule one week to jet to Lexington, Kentucky at the last minute at the behest of Calipari for a Kentucky basketball event.

Ahhh, so that’s why Drake was on the Kings’ sideline wearing UK gear this week. Okay. Love you, Kings, but please stay away from our coach.

      I know reading comprehension is tough. But until you get it figured out, you probably shouldn’t post.

    The death of Pitino in Boston wasn’t when he didn’t get Duncan in the draft. The death of Pitino in Boston when he tried filling the roster with Wildcats.

    I’m sure the timing of this story doesn’t have anything to do with the start of the National Signing period.

      Isn’t that the truth! Since this year, we are signing more players in early signing period, lets start the rumors in November instead March & April

    Why can’t Karl just cozy up to Cousins so we don’t have to hear about this anymore? You knew he was on the team when you took the job bro.

    Not to worry Pitino will need a job soon.
