Kings pick up Westphal's 2011-12 option

The Sacramento Kings picked up the option head coach Paul Westphal's contract for the 2011-12 season on Monday.

In his first season with the Kings, Westphal has guided the club to a 25-55 record -- tied for last in the Pacific Division -- heading into Monday's game against Houston.

"I'm very excited to continue to be able to have a chance to build what we have with the Kings," Westphal said. "It's been a great experience laying the foundation for years of exciting basketball to come. I'm thrilled by the support of the community, the Maloofs, the front office, and my staff and the players."

The former Phoenix Suns (1992-96) and Seattle SuperSonics (1998-2001) head coach took over for the Kings after the worst season in franchise history, a 17-65 campaign that saw the firing of Reggie Theus in December and interim head coach Kenny Natt at the season's end.

Westphal has a lifetime coaching record of 292-214 in eight seasons as an NBA head coach.
