Rick Adelman Out as Kings Coach

ESPN, and others, report that Rick Adelman is done as Kings coach. Not a complete shocker.

Geoff Petrie, the Kings' president of basketball operations, wouldn't give any clear-cut reasons for the decision not to extend Adelman's contract, which expires in September. But owners Joe and Gavin Maloof, apparently dissatisfied with Adelman for years, are widely thought to be behind the move.

I don't expect the Sonics to look his way. But, if Nate McMillan gets canned by the new Blazers owner maybe Adelman ends up back in Portland. His last team in Portland could include one of the future Blazer owners.
