De’Aaron Fox’s quantum leap and Willie Cauley-Stein’s breakout alone should have earned Joerger and his staff more patience from on high, but sources confirmed Chris Haynes’ report that concerns about insufficient playing time for prized rookie forward Marvin Bagley III and other young prospects have everything to do with this ruckus. There’s this bit of complicated context, too: While Joerger is under contract through next season after having the fourth year of his $15 million deal picked up in Sept. 2017, sources say his assistant coaches are on the final year of their respective deals and, thus, dealing with a second-level sort of lame-duck status.
Kings center Willie Cauley-Stein expressed similar sentiments following a victory over San Antonio earlier this week after Spurs coach Gregg Popovich noticed how the culture in Sacramento has “changed drastically.” “The culture was changed before our first game through the guys,” Cauley-Stein said. “I’ve been here for four years and this is the first time that everybody is on one page and everybody likes playing with each other. Everybody really cares if you do well. “In the past, it was like these two dudes need to get their numbers and we might win, and if we win it’s cool. Now, it’s like we’re playing for everybody else to play good. We’re helping each other play good and it’s more fun that way. Everybody is getting touches and everybody is getting to make plays, and that’s how you keep everyone engaged and happy.”
