Kings coach Luke Walton was among the first to be mentioned as a potential replacement at Arizona after Sean Miller was fired Wednesday.

Maybe one day he will return to his alma mater and lead the Wildcats back to the heights they reached under former coach Lute Olson decades ago, but Walton said he is not interested in the job at this time.

“No, no interest,” Walton said. “I love Arizona. I think Sean Miller did an amazing job there in his time, but I have a job. I have a job that I love. I have a group I love working with, so I’m very committed to being hear in Sacramento and keeping this going in the direction that we want it to go and getting this team back into the playoffs.”

Walton has a 53-70 record in two seasons with the Kings.
