Dave Joerger goes from coaching Grizzlies to Kings in two days
Joerger, 42, was 147-99 with three playoff appearances in three seasons with the Grizzlies but reportedly was let go after he asked for permission to speak with other teams. Karl was 44-68 in one-plus year with the Kings and had trouble getting on the same page with star big man DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings were 33-49 this season and finished eight games out of a playoff spot.
The Kings fired Karl on April 14, and Joerger will be their ninth coach since the end of the Rick Adelman era in 2006.
