The breakup between Karl and Denver was pretty messy, but other than that I think the team's success likely never revealed such obvious puppet string pulling by Karl and the Kings struggle, tied with Karl's lack of coaching is bringing all this to light.
I think we saw it before the season even started when the trade Cousins rumors were going around.
I think we had the opportunity to let him go then, but I don't think Vivek wanted to eat another contract. I mean look at the drama now with the team trying to get him to eat a $10M contract by quitting. Like, who in their right mind would give up $10 with 2 months left in the season?!
Karl has tried everything in his power this season to get fired and even before summer league started last year.
For the team to suspend DMC for "actions detrimental to the team", I'm a little surprised they don't do the same to Karl other than what he's done hasn't actually been done in the open.
Why not just say, "Hey, we're going to fire you at the end of the year. We know you don't want to coach anymore. Why not take the rest of the season off for 'personal issues' and we'll agree to part ways and pay you the rest of your contract" ?
