HOUSTON (AP) — George Karl is slated to coach the season finale for the Sacramento Kings amid reports that he could be fired as soon as Thursday.
The Kings will wrap up their 10th straight season without making the playoffs Wednesday night in Houston. Multiple reports (http://bit.ly/1oYw6we , http://es.pn/1Noim4m , http://yhoo.it/1qS84F3 ) indicate that Karl will be fired after the team returns home.
Karl has a 44-67 record since taking over Sacramento last February. His job has been in jeopardy much of this season as he has had multiple run-ins with DeMarcus Cousins and has been unable to turn the struggling franchise's fortunes around.
Karl is the eighth coach in Sacramento since the team last went to the playoffs in 2006 under Rick Adelman. The Kings are 33-48 this season.
