Jokić politely declined The Athletic’s request recently to speak more in-depth regarding his MVP award and his relationship with Serbia. “For the people in Serbia, they also need the national team games,” Divac, a Basketball Hall of Famer, told The Athletic. “Obviously, it was kind of bad timing for him after the season where he played every game and averaged almost 40 minutes, being tired, being in the playoffs, he just couldn’t make it for the national team. And obviously, they lost in Olympic qualifications. “So he took a little bit of a hit from that. But I support him big time because people don’t understand NBA basketball. It’s rough. It would be very difficult on his body to continue to play in the summer.”

Alvin Gentry would likely take Kings job if Luke Walton dismissed

But sources with knowledge of the Kings’ plans say Walton is not in any imminent trouble and — barring a complete nose-dive in the second half — is likely to last at least through this season. There is a strong sense in coaching circles that Kings associate head coach Alvin Gentry would likely take over if Walton were eventually dismissed, but that time does not appear to be coming anytime soon. Sources say Walton, who was hired by former general manager Vlade Divac in mid-April of 2019, is owed a combined $11.5 million in the next two seasons of his four-year guaranteed deal.

Richaun Holmes: 'I absolutely love playing in Sacramento'

That isn’t the case with Richaun Holmes. Former general manager Vlade Divac found a diamond in the rough during the summer of 2019 and the Kings’ starting center would love nothing more than to stick around when his two-year contract expires this summer. “Absolutely,” Holmes said on a recent taping of Kings Central on NBC Sports California. “I absolutely love playing in Sacramento. Love the fans in Sacramento. Love stepping out in that arena with Sacramento across my jersey. So I would love to play here and hopefully everything works out, but Sacramento is a great place to play. They’ve embraced me with open arms and it’s somewhere I can definitely see myself playing.”
