Kings Use 2017 Draft to Add a Big Man and Other Key Players

Sacramento Kings compete in the NBA as an American professional basketball member of the Western Conference’s Pacific Division. The team’s home area is based at the Golden 1 Center since 1985. The franchise has since won one World Series Championship in 1951 and another one Conference Title the same year. However, in 1979, 2002, and […]

Leading up to the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers have breezed their way through the playoffs, sweeping their opponents in the first and second rounds, and beating the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals in six games. In the West, the Golden State Warriors, who were down three games to one to the Oklahoma […]

Kings beat Miami Heat: Win in OT 108-103

This was, all things considered, a pretty important game for this team if you are hoping for better improved play over the long term. There were some positive signs, some negative things (too many turnovers) and the reality that Miami just wasn't very good last night.  All these things happen. But, something else happened last […]

Assessing the Kings place after trading for Rudy Gay

There has been much talk about whether or not the Kings can afford Isaiah Thomas in the wake of the salary cap behemoth otherwise known as Rudy Gay's contract, how many shots Rudy Gay can take and still be effective, and, whether or not Jason Thompson is on the outs himself. Talk is cheap. Doing […]

Where are at the Kings as of now Sept 2013?

"There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief  "There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief  Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth  None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.  "No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke  […]

Kings are close to completing a trade for Tyreke Evans to the Pelicans

As Ailene Voisin reported, the Kings and Pelicans are close to agreeing to a Sign and Trade deal that includes Tyreke Evans for Robin Lopez and Greivis Vasquez. There's just one problem: Actually completing the trade. Which is the point of the post. I don't agree with the trade, if it ends up happening, and […]

Kings draft Ben McLemore at 7th overall; Ray McCallum at 36th overall

Well. Alrighty then. Yeah. I just wrote that. Get over it. Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum as the first two picks of the Vivek & Co. era. That's nothing if not anything but an asset collection as far as I can see.  Are either of those players automatically better than Tyreke Evans? No. What about […]

Giving Tyreke Evans a max deal: Does it make sense?

Tyreke and a max contract: Pretty tough thing to answer, yes? Or, no, depending on where you stand on Tyreke. Where I stand? Let's start there. I don't think Tyreke is worth a max deal based on production. I think a 4 year 44 million dollar deal is probably as close to fair value as […]

Kings hire Pete D’Alessandro as GM

Well. Pete D'Alessandro is the next GM. Which, I don't mind telling you. is a pretty damn good deal. D'Alessandro has been in league front offices under Chris Mullin and the last 3 years under Masai Ujiri in Denver. And yes, Denver lost both D'Alessandro and Ujiri. (Which is a different matter entirely.) What does […]
