The Sacramento Kings already have a new coach. This is Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Brown. The agreement was closed yesterday after meeting two days during the past week. Brown has signed for four years, although he will not join his new position until they eliminate the Warriors from the playoffs or until they win the ring if they manage to reach the end of this race.

The goal of the new Kings coach is very clear: return the team to the title playoffs. Those from Sacramento have gone 16 seasons without stepping on the playoffs, the worst streak in history. Brown, who coached the Nigerian national team at the Tokyo Olympics, had not set foot on an NBA bench as a head coach since 2014. It was in his second stint in Cleveland. The first, the most fruitful for him so far, it lasted five seasons (2005-2010) and earned him the title of best coach in 2007, the year in which he reached the NBA Finals. The rest of his experience as a coach is with the Los Angeles Lakers, whom he coached for 67 games spread between the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years.

has also been assistant coach for 13 seasonsin which he has worked with some of the best coaches in history (Gregg Popovich, Steve Kerr), forming part of winning projects such as the Spurs in 2003 or the Warriors in 2017 and 2018. His record as a coach in the regular season it is 347 wins and 216 losses (61.6%), while in the playoffs it is 47-36 (56.6%).
