SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings plan to interview
Paul Westphal this week for their head coaching vacancy.

Westphal is the Dallas Mavericks' executive vice president of basketball operations. His lengthy coaching resume includes a trip to the 1993 NBA finals during 3½ seasons in charge of the Phoenix Suns, followed by stints with the Seattle SuperSonics and Pepperdine.

The Kings also plan to interview former Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan this week before president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie leaves for a scouting trip to Spain.

Interim coach Kenny Natt was fired last month after the Kings finished with the NBA's worst record at 17-65. The new coach will be Sacramento's fourth since 2006.
