Kings extend Divac, Joerger through 2020

Kings GM Vlade Divac, left, and coach Dave Joerger are now under contract through 2020.

The Sacramento Kings have extended the contract of general manager Vlade Divac and picked up the fourth-year option of coach Dave Joerger, the team announced Wednesday on its website.

Both are now under contract through the 2019-2020 season.

Divac has been Kings’ GM through 2015 and made his biggest splash last offseason, when he traded All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans in February.

Joerger coached the Memphis Grizzlies for three seasons before taking over the Kings last season. They finished 32-50.

Divac, Joerger and the Kings have some added excitement this season, with the addition of first-round picks De’Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Harry Giles, as well as veterans Zach Randolph, George Hill and Vince Carter, among others.
