New Kings starting lineup post Martin trade – Evans, Garcia, Casspi, Landry and Thompson.
I like it so far. Get Cisco back into the swing of things and let Hawes bring some energy and scoring off the bench, where he’s actually been pretty decent this season.
Francisco Garcia might be the most forgotten member of this team and the lost story of this Kevin Martin trade. He now plays a much more prominent role with the franchise and will get a chance to justify the presumed bad contract. Putting him out in the starting lineup let’s him get his legs going early. And if it’s not working, you’ve got Donté Greene off the bench to come in and provide a spark.
