With the word getting out, that Luke Walton will be the upcoming head coach, I’d say, the Kings could be an upcoming power house in the West. The young core of Buddy Hield, Marvin Bagley, De’Aaron Fox and Willie Cauley-Stein improved the team so much over the season. I think, with Walton out of the drama filled Laker organization, he can only go up. Sure, Vlade might have been questioned after he fired Joerger after having their best season in 15 years. But, him knowing his replacement was going to be just as good, Walton was the only exception. Now Walton will not have to deal with the LeBron hype and just win in Sacramento, pressure will be off of his shoulders. After this offseason, the West may be weakened with the possibility of Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis leaving the conference. I only see the Kings growing in the near future.
