Luke Walton leaves two days after Magic Johnson

Sacramento Kings: 5 candidates to replace Dave Joerger as head coach

From Luke to Lue? Lakers, Luke Walton part company

The organization announced its decision to "mutually" part ways with coach Luke Walton after three seasons.

While Walton and Johnson - who surprisingly quit in impromptu fashion Tuesday night - are out, GM Rob Pelinka is expected to stay on board.

That has changed. The Kings have a talented young team featuring De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Harrison Barnes, Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles III.

Stylistically, Walton is considered a ideal fit for the uptempo system the Kings unleashed on the league this season.

Jean Floyd, Stratolaunch Systems chief executive, said the aircraft made a "spectacular" landing that was on the mark. The world's largest aircraft completed its first test flight, developer Stratolaunch Systems Corporation announced.

In any event, Walton has been rumored as a potential replacement for the outgoing Dave Joerger since news of Joerger's departure from the franchise. Mid-season past year, the Cavs fired then-head coach Tyronn Lue.

Pace is what propelled the Kings to their surprising finish this season, and Walton is certainly capable of piloting a team that plays fast. The former Golden State top assistant never led the Lakers to the playoffs, not even after the arrival of LeBron James last summer. A season in which new-Laker LeBron James was expected to carry the team to their first playoff appearance since 2013.

A day after Walton became the latest casualty of the Lakers' disappointing regular season, ESPN and The Athletic both reported that the deposed coach will not be unemployed for long.

The Lakers had cursory discussions with Walton's representatives on Wednesday in which they discussed whether there was a way forward, multiple sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. "Everything has to be in good order".
