Coby Karl RumorsAll NBA Players
One of the short term objectives for George Karl is assembling his coaching staff in Sacramento and it’s likely that the Kings existing assistants will remain intact — with perhaps one addition, CSNCalifornia.com is learning. According to league sources, Mitch Richmond and Coby Karl are possible additions. Richmond — a Hall of Famer, former King, and current scout for the franchise — may be in the mix to join Karl’s staff. Coby Karl, George’s son, is currently playing professionally in Germany and is under contract. So a more likely scenario is that the younger Karl joins the Sacramento ranks this summer.
Coby Karl will continue his career in Germany with MHP Ludwigsburg, a source told Sportando. The American guard/forward, son of the NBA coach of the year, started the season with Reggio Emilia of Italy.
The coach believes Coby gets overlooked because he’s older and NBA teams are seeking younger prospects. “Right now, you go to the D-League and no one looks at Coby Karl because he’s (30) years old,” said George Karl. “If he’s the best player in the D-League, he still should get picked up. It should not be based upon youthful potential.”
Nuggets coach George Karl is miffed NBA teams haven’t given another chance to his son Coby Karl. Coby is averaging 13.2 points, 6.2 assists and 3.7 rebounds for the D-League’s Idaho Stampede. Coby, 30, hasn’t been on an NBA roster since finishing the 2009-10 season with the Nuggets, when George Karl was sidelined by cancer.
