The Sacramento Kings made the league's first coaching change of the season in replacing Luke Walton with Alvin Gentry.

Rather than pursue a significant trade, the Kings' front office expects Genry, De'Aaron Fox and the rest of the Kings to recapture the play they exhibited when they started the season well.

Gentry remains under contract through the 22-23 season and will coach the team for the duration of the season barring unforeseen circumstances.
