Dave Joerger Rumors

Kings players still around from recent seasons seem to welcome Joerger’s approach. “We always felt last year we could score on anybody, but we couldn’t get stops,” forward Omri Casspi said. “We’ve emphasized in camp if we get stops, we’re going to be tough to guard. We’ve always known that we have enough talent to score. So when you put guys in the right situations, right spots everyday and force your will on the defensive end, you can see better results.”
When the media doors opened to the Kings practice facility at the new Golden 1 Center Monday afternoon, point guard Ty Lawson was on the floor with his teammates. It’s been a rocky 72 hours for the 28-year-old after he missed a team flight to Kentucky, but he’s survived for the moment and will remain part of the Kings roster. “Ty had a personal issue and that stuff is non-basketball related,” coach Dave Joerger said. “There is no situation,” Joerger continued. “It’s in my hands. The decisions that were made of the plane and all that stuff, that’s on me. It’s a personal issue, I think has been very inaccurately reported.”
