Warriors coach Steve Kerr on Kings’ firing of Luke Walton: ‘He’s everything you want in a coach’

SAN FRANCISCO – A branch of Steve Kerr’s coaching tree was seen on Sunday.

Luke Walton, Kerr’s staff assistant with the Golden State Warriors from 2014-16, was fired on Sunday by the Sacramento Kings for 17 games in his third season. Sacramento was 6–11 this season and failed to clock a .500 in either of its first two seasons.

“It’s a tough business,” Kerr told his Warriors before going against the Toronto Raptors. “You have to prepare everything to last in this league for a long time. … Luke is one of the finest human beings I know in the NBA. He’s smart, he’s humble, he’s an ally. He’s everything.” Whatever you want in a coach. That’s why I asked him to be an assistant coach here years ago.”

Walton, previously a member of Kerr’s coaching staff, has been fired twice since leaving the Los Angeles Lakers head coaching job in 2016. He has amassed a .408 win percentage and has posted a never-ending winning season since leaving the Warriors.
