The Sacramento Kings have let go of Keith Smart as their head coach, the team announced Friday.

“The Kings would like to thank Keith for his hard work and dedication to the organization. We wish him and his family nothing but the best in future endeavors,” new owner Vivek Ranadive wrote in a statement.

It is rumored that Golden State Warriors assistant coach Mike Malone will be announced as the new head coach of the Kings as early as Monday.

Smart had been the Kings’ head coach since January 2012, after previous coach Paul Westphal was fired.
