Sacramento Kings Allegedly Interested in John Calipari


When you are among the top college basketball coaches in the country, NBA offers often come about and rumors spread. Kentucky coach John Calipari has apparently been linked to the Sacramento Kings for the head coach position. Yet, there has been no confirmation and both sides have denied any activity between them.

Over his college coaching career at UMass, Memphis, and Kentucky, he has a record of 635-178, including a national championship in 2012. His NBA success has been nowhere near as good, as he was fired early in his third season with the Nets. It seems unlikely that Calipari would head anywhere given his success, salary, and power in Kentucky. Any conversation between Calipari and the Kings has revolved around former Kentucky basketball players according to the coach.
