Maloof Denies Having Issues with Petrie
Kings co-owner Gavin Maloof sat courtside before tipoff against the Warriors at Oracle Arena on Tuesday night and expressed support for his head basketball decision maker and head coach.
Maloof said any reports the team is considering replacing basketball president Geoff Petrie are “totally false.”
“Geoff’s always been a part of the family,” Maloof said. “We’re in a rough stretch, but so what? Things will turn around.
“I know sometimes the record doesn’t indicate (improvement), but I like the way he’s developing our young players,” Maloof said. “I like the way he’s working with them and helping them learn the science of the game. We’re really, really high on Keith Smart.
