Westphal, who has coached the Phoenix Suns and the Seattle SuperSonics, will replace interim coach Kenny Natt. The Kings finished 17-65, the worst record in the NBA and in franchise history.

Westphal is Sacramento's fourth new coach in just over three years since the club fired Rick Adelman in 2006 following eight straight playoff appearances. Eric Musselman, Reggie Theus and Natt all have been dismissed by Sacramento, with Natt replacing Theus last December.
