Karl, 33, took over the Los Angeles D-Fenders in September and has led the squad to the league’s top record (22-6). Karl played for Boise State from 2003-07 and spent multiple stints with the NBADL’s Idaho Stampede between 2008 and ’13. He played 24 career NBA games and 122 D-League games before becoming an assistant coach for the Westchester Knicks during the 2015-16 season.
His father, George Karl, coached 27 NBA seasons for six franchises.
