Luke Walton, the head coach of the Sacramento Kings, is pleased with the development of his players during the 2019/20 season.

Walton believes his team started playing consistent basketball prior to the NBA suspension and thinks the future will be bright for his players, if they keep improving.

“I was really pleased with how we were playing over the last 20-25 games. We were really starting to play some consistent basketball. Defending and playing the way we really wanted to. Guys were really understanding each other and knowing, playing, and feeding off each other.

I love where we’re at as a group. I think our future is bright. We have a great group of guys. Winning consistently in any pro sport is hard, but when you get a good group of guys that work hard and like each other and are willing to trust each other, I think this is how you make that happen,” Walton told reporters on Wednesday, via Jason Jones of The Athletic.
