08:20 AM ET 02.01 | Gavin Maloof had an up-close-and-personal courtside seat for another of his team's losses Tuesday night at Oracle Arena, but he expressed support for basketball president Geoff Petrie. Maloof said any reports the team is considering replacing [Petrie] are "totally false." "Geoff's always been a part of the family," Maloof said. "We're in a rough stretch, but so what? Things will turn around." After Tuesday's 93-90 loss to Golden State, the Kings are 6-15, last in the Pacific Division with the second-worst record in the Western Conference. Petrie suggested replacing head coach Paul Westphal with assistant coach Keith Smart on Jan. 5. Smart is 4-10 since taking over, but Maloof said he is impressed with Smart's coaching.

The dreaded "vote of confidence" usually precedes the firing by a couple of weeks.
