Nick Friedell: Mike Dunleavy was asked before the game whether a team had to like one another on the floor in order to succeed. “You got to be able to play well together. You got to have a chemistry and a rhythm and a synergy to make all five guys on the court working together to get wins. It just seemed like there were times this year where we were just not all on the same page. And that’s — whether it’s liking the guy or not — you got to figure out a way to play with people. And that’s something that’s going to have to be addressed and improved upon.”
Hoiberg is viewed as his hire, though it was signed off on unanimously. Forman prevailed in the internal debate over whether to try to finalize a Pau Gasol-to-the-Kings trade deadline deal, though there was sentiment that with Mike Dunleavy just back the team could make a run as well as not loving the return from the Kings. Forman then publicly doubled down on re-signing Gasol, calling him part of the core. That stance has softened with Noah a priority, sources said, and Gasol also will entertain free-agency options.
