Paul Westphal confirmed Tuesday nigh that he had accepted the Kings' job.
Westphal is best known for his stint with the Charles Barkley-led Phoenix Suns from 1992-1996 in which he led the franchise to the NBA finals. Unfortunately, they matched up against Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. They usually didn't end so well.
The Kings finished this season with an NBA-worst 17-65 record.
