Former Sonics Coach Hired to Coach Kings

Posted: Updated:
SACRAMENTO (AP) - The Sacramento Kings have reached an
agreement in principle with Paul Westphal to be their next coach.
      Westphal, who has coached the Phoenix Suns and the Seattle
SuperSonics, will replace interim coach Kenny Natt. The Kings
finished 17-65, the worst record in the NBA and in franchise
      Westphal is Sacramento's fourth new coach in just over three
years since the club fired Rick Adelman in 2006 following eight
straight playoff appearances. Eric Musselman, Reggie Theus and Natt
all have been dismissed by Sacramento, with Natt replacing Theus
last December.
