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, 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.
With a Kings logo prominent among the emblems gracing the flowing red curtains behind him, Mitch Richmond – light dancing off his diamond earrings and a black suit jacket draped over the broad shoulders that carried his teams to countless hard-fought victories – soaked in his biggest basketball moment at Friday’s Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony. “It’s finally hit me,” he said softly, shortly before stepping foot inside the majestic Springfield Symphony Hall auditorium. “I’m just glad (the Hall of Fame) didn’t overlook me, because I felt underrated my whole career. Having the opportunity now to be rewarded for all the hard work, the sweat I put in, those hours in the gym, I can say it really paid off and it was all worth it.”
