Kings exercise option on Smart's contract for 2012-13

The Kings announced today they have picked up Keith Smart's contract option for 2012-13, ensuring Smart will return next year as the team's head coach.

"Keith has done a terrific job of taking control of the direction of the team," said Geoff Petrie, the Kings' president of basketball operations, in a written statement. "He is active, engaged and working hard to develop our young players along with a complementary style of play."

Smart began the season as an assistant coach and was promoted after Paul Westphal was fired following a 2-5 start and a public feud with second-year center DeMarcus Cousins.

The Kings are 10-20 since Smart took over as head coach on Jan. 5.
