“I would like to congratulate Igor on his promotion to Fenerbahce’s head coach and thank him for his time with the Kings,” said Sacramento Kings coach Luke Walton. “He has been a valued member of my coaching staff and his natural ability to guide our players will continue to inspire the team as we move forward in Orlando. We wish him the best.“
