This extension comes just days after reports of a rift between Brown and the Kings’ ownership over the terms of the deal. Despite the initial disagreements, both parties reached an agreement, securing Brown’s future with the team.

Mike Brown was hired as the Kings’ head coach in May 2022, and he wasted no time making an impact. In his first season, he led the team to a 48-34 record, securing the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference and ending the franchise’s 16-year playoff drought.

With Mike Brown locked up for the foreseeable future, the Kings now shift their focus to other important matters. One such priority is the free agency of guard Malik Monk, who has been a key contributor off the bench for Sacramento. Monk finished as the runner-up for Sixth Man of the Year and is expected to receive significant interest from other teams.

The Kings can offer Monk a four-year, $77.9 million contract due to collective bargaining rules, but other teams with more cap space could potentially offer him over $100 million over four years. Retaining Monk would be crucial for the Kings, given his scoring impact and role in their resurgence.
