Sacramento Kings Rumors
I’ve read some of the interviews you’ve done since the hire and you’ve expressed your gratitude to Becky for opening the door. Becky is clearly deserving in her own right, but all due respect, you’re a Hall of Famer. Shouldn’t this have happened for you a long time ago? Nancy Lieberman: Sometimes things are not on our time frame. And what I know with my career and my life, and the older you are, you hope you have more wisdom and perspective. People can say what they want out of respect for me and my career. I’ve got 40 years in. And relationships that are long and deep. But sometimes life is not on my timing. It’s about when the right time opens itself up to you. I’m happy — this is not a political line for Becky Hammon, ’cause Becky and I are friends, and have been for many, many years. She is a brilliant, brilliant player, and she has incredible qualities to be a brilliant coach.
James Ham: Kings contend that team doctors found an injury in Mbah a Moute that caused them to void his deal. Well within their rights under CBA. Kings have been in similar situations in the past with both Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Chuck Hayes. Kept both players.
What really happened (with Sacramento)? Luc Richard Mbah a Moute: It is a mistake from Sacramento, they made an error in judgment. At the moment, we are working with them and with the players’ union to try to resolve the situation. But I can confirm that the doctor that made me undergo the medical examination made a mistake. It hurt especially in terms of image.
