Kings' methodical coaching search ended with Dave Joerger

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Vlade Divac's first coaching search as general manager of the Sacramento Kings was methodical. He talked to about a dozen candidates over several weeks and was ready to bring in three finalists for a second interview before settling on a pick.

That all changed when Memphis fired Dave Joerger on Saturday and a plodding search moved into warp speed. The Kings flew Joerger and his family to Sacramento on Sunday, hired him as coach a day later and introduced him at a news conference on Tuesday.

"We got probably the best coach out there," Divac said. "I'm happy with the process. If I did it overnight or I did it fast, we'd probably end up without Dave. We took the time, talked to a lot of candidates and had the opportunity to talk to Dave, too."
