Nancy Lieberman Rumors
Sean Cunningham: New Kings head coach Dave Joerger oversees draft workout today while Corliss Williamson and Nancy Lieberman work players
Ailene Voisin: Kings GM Vlade Divac said club will retain assistants Corliss Williamson and Nancy Lieberman.
The wildly talented Cousins is a lot of things, but he’s no dummy. He sees the justifiable criticism of Ranadive, whose refusal to stand by the only NBA coach who truly connected with Cousins, Michael Malone, in Dec. 2014 was one of the many plot twists that helped cause this mess. He sees the in-fighting on the coaching staff, with assistant coach Nancy Lieberman identified as a Ranadive confidante and thus unofficially exiled by Karl months ago.
To be more specific, Kings vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac fired an assistant coach in Vance Walberg who had longtime ties to Karl. According to two people with knowledge of the situation, concerns about Walberg’s relationships with the team’s players was a major concern that had everything to do with the move. What’s more, friction with fellow assistant coach Nancy Lieberman only made matters worse.
