But Corbin will be given the rest of the season to see if he can implement the faster-paced offense the front office and ownership want. “We’ve got to work and make sure we settle down as we try to change things offensively and whatever pace we try to play at, but working to get better,” Corbin said. That management had made the commitment to Corbin was news to his players. “I didn’t know,” Cousins said. “I didn’t know officially until (Monday) night, either. That’s when a lot of us found out.” Sacramento Bee

Sacramento Kings coach Tyrone Corbin says his interim tag has been lifted for the rest of the season. Corbin spoke before the game against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday. He replaced fired coach Michael Malone on Dec. 15. Corbin says the team can "relax on that part of it and focus more on the games." The Kings are 2-5 since Corbin took over the team.

Tyrone Corbin was assured last week he’d be the Kings’ coach for the rest of the season, agreeing to a contract that is commensurate for the job. The decision by management ends the uncertainty about Corbin’s status after his future was left in limbo the day after Michael Malone was fired. “You need to hear it – it’s done,” Corbin said. “But as I said when I took over, we’re here together until something changes.” Until Corbin signed the deal for the rest of the season, there was reason to think the team might make an outside hire. Corbin inherited a team that supported Malone. Many players were not happy with Malone’s dismissal and it appeared the support for Corbin from management was lukewarm. Sacramento Bee

According to an NBA source, the Sacramento Kings inked Tyrone Corbin to a contract to coach the team through the end of the 2014-15 season more than a week ago. Corbin originally signed a two-year contract as an assistant coach under Michael Malone. When Malone was relieved of his duties on Dec. 14, Corbin was named to an interim role. This is the second time in his career that Corbin has taken over a team mid-season. The former NBA player stepped in for Jerry Sloan with the Utah Jazz during the 2010-11 season. He coached the Jazz to a 112-146 record from 2011-2014, before being let go on April 21, 2014. Cowbell Kingdom
