Give It A Listen: Discussing The Kings On The Radio

Recently I was on 590 The Fan in St. Louis with Brian Doolittle to discuss DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans and the state of the Kings franchise. Click here to listen. I'm in Part 3 of the show 17. More

Casspi responds.

In response to the news of the defacing of a downtown Sacramento mural featuring his likeness, Omri Casspi of the Kings had this to say: "It's been all over the news over here," said Casspi. "Everybody's talking about it. It's hurtful to think that this is 2010, and there are still people like that out there. I almost ... More

Hornets dishonesty, Kings gain?

According to Adrian Wojnorowski, Luther Head's road to Sacramento was paved by Hornet deceit: Head had agreed to a one-year deal with Hornets GM Jeff Bower, only to have the GM fired within days of the verbal agreement. It appeared that Weber didn’t want Head under contract for the next GM, and cancelled the agreement ... More

Uh Oh… What Happens If Tyreke Evans Can Shoot?

If you’re reading this post, I’m assuming you’re a Kings fan. Otherwise, why else would you be reading a Sacramento Kings blog unless you’re just trying to be supportive of my writing career? Assuming you are a Kings fan -- do you remember back in March and April when you were constantly arguing with Milwaukee Bucks ... More

In case you missed them, here are some required Kings summer reading articles.

Not to shamelessly promote the work of others but man oh man do Kings fans miss the day-to-day writing of Sam Amick. Yesterday Amick went back-to-back with:

From Dime Mag: Tyreke Evans Working Out With JaVale McGee

Check out this little video of Reke and McGee working out with trainer Rob McClanaghan (via Dime Mag): I don't know if it's just the extra medium workout shirt Tyreke has on but he looks HUGE. He's definitely added some muscle to his frame this off-season. I'll have more on that this week but I feel bad for the point ... More

The Bee's Voisin Chimes in on Melo…

I must preface this discussion with my distaste for the style and quality typically associated with this particular author's work but the highlighted portion holds two important points worth reiterating that bring us back to yesterday's post:
Camelo and the Kings? "If and when the Denver Nuggets commit to a sign-and-trade for Carmelo Anthony, the Kings will thrust themselves into the conversation. Count on it. The Nuggets have offered their all-Star small forward a three-year, $65 million extension, but his intentions are unclear. Is he serious about wanting out? Or just posturing for a sweeter deal? Regardless, the Nuggets front office upheaval doesn't help matters. New GM Masai Ujiri is walking into a mess, and the last thing a new executive wants to do is trade his franchise player, and probably for lesser parts. That said, Joe and Gavin Maloof have been consistent about two things: (1) They are not interested in adding role players to eat up the salary cap space they've finally created; and (2) They are absolutely interested in a game-changer type of player, someone who puts fannies in the seats and affects the won-loss percentage, e.g., a Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony. You can be assured inquiries have been made and discussions will be ongoing." <a href="http://blogs.sacbee.com/sports/kings/archives/2010/08/casspi-israel-q.html#mi_rss=Latest%20News">-Ailene Voisin
