Sources: Sacramento Kings references removed from George Karl’s forthcoming book

George Karl’s time with the Sacramento Kings has been documented in the longtime NBA coach’s forthcoming book, but there have been passages critical of various aspects that have been removed from the final version of his book‎, according to league sources.

Karl’s book, co-authored by Curt Sampson, included some unflattering views in a proof copy obtained by ESPN.com about Kings star DeMarcus Cousins, general manager Vlade Divac and owner Vivek Ranadive. But sources say Karl’s views were stricken from the version scheduled for public distribution next month.

Karl told ESPN on Saturday that he had “not authorized” those pages to be included in the book, which is titled “Furious George.”

Karl was ousted as Kings coach at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season after only 112 games and 14 months in charge. He posted a 44-68 record in Sacramento and departed with $6.5 million in guaranteed salary remaining on his original four-year contract, which was struck during the 2015 All-Star break.

Sources told ESPN.com that refraining from critical commentary of the Kings was part of Karl’s settlement agreement
