As if Jerry Reynolds stepping down from his color commentary role wasn’t enough for Kings fans to digest, they will be missing another familiar voice when it comes time for next season: Scott Moak’s.
The long-time public address announcer, along with a number of others, was relieved of his duties, according to a tweet from Carmichael Dave.
Just learned a number of fantastic people were let go from the Kings today, more in a long line of fantastic people let go.Scott Moak was one of them.
I already didn’t understand this franchise.I am continually baffled at their lack of vision and loyalty.

Moak had been the team’s PA announcer since 2002.
I just got word about @AnnouncerScott. Moak is as good as they get. A community stalwart and a heartbeat of the local effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. If I wrote a book about it, he’d get a chapter.

In 2014, Moak was named Community Impact and Executive Director of the Sacramento Kings Foundation.
Many who knew Moak spoke highly of his work, not only at games, but in the community as well, and his departure was something no one seemed to see coming.
This is relating to the inane layoff of Kings PA announcer Scott Moak, who was much more than that for that franchise and its city for a long time. A terrible, inexplicable move. Talk about not reading the room… https://t.co/mVczCYJQ5S

Moak was one of the constants that the Kings had while most players and management went in one door and out the other.
The 2018/19 season will be a different one for the Kings to say the least.
