New Sacramento Kings general manager Monte McNair said he is looking forward to working with coach Luke Walton to revive a franchise that has the longest current playoff drought in the NBA.
McNair was hired last week after a long tenure as an executive in Houston to replace Vlade Divac. He backed Walton publicly during his introductory news conference Wednesday.
"I've got to know him the last few days, we've had some good conversations," McNair said. "I've heard great things. So far I think we've had a great rapport. Luke's going to be our coach next year. I'm really excited to work with him. I think we're aligned with our vision and we're gonna start implementing it."
