The Kings sought and were granted permission by the Clippers to meet with Woodson in the near future, sources said.
Woodson, 58, is one of several former head coaches with whom the Kings want to discuss their job opening. The Kings also have interest in Vinny Del Negro, Kevin McHale and Mark Jackson, among others.
In his second year on the Clippers’ coaching staff under Doc Rivers, Woodson most recently led the New York Knicks to a 54-victory regular season in 2012-13 and the franchise’s first playoff series victory in 13 years. As interim coach in 2011-12, Woodson won 18 of 24 games to close the regular season and reach the playoffs.
