Reggie Theus, well, he has put himself in the best position possible.
First off, he was guaranteed $6 million which is good for just about anybody. Aside from that, it’s a no-lose deal. Worst case scenario, Theus fails in Sacramento and pockets the cash. He’ll still have a job waiting for him in the college game, possibly at a program with higher prestige than NMSU. And if he gets the Kings to scrape the .500 mark, he’ll look like a solid young coach on the rise.
He’ll be talking today at NMSU at noon to discuss the search and say his final farewell. After that, it’s off to Sacramento. I think he will surprise people on the next level
