It’s official, the Sacramento Kings acquire James Johnson from the Toronto Raptors

While most of us were busy sleeping, the Sacramento Kings were finishing off a deal to land small forward James Johnson from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for a 2014 2nd round pick.  ESPN's Marc Stein first reported the deal, but it has since been confirmed by our friend Sam Amick of as well as others. The Kings have just confirmed the acquisition through an official press release.  Here is Geoff Petrie, Kings President of Basketball Operations' quote on the transaction.
“We’re excited to add a talent like James to our young nucleus of players,” said Petrie. “He’s an outstanding defender with athleticism who can play at both positions up front while providing some versatility offensively and adding a dimension to what we can do on the floor.”
Johnson is an interesting prospect.  Taken 16th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls, he is moving on to his third team in four seasons.  The 6-foot-9 245-pound Johnson started 40 games last season for the Raptors, posting up 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, two assists, 1.4 blocks and a steal in 25 minutes per game. ...

Are the Sacramento Kings tired of waiting for Hassan Whiteside?

After two season and two Las Vegas Summer League games, it appears the Sacramento Kings are now wondering if and not when Hassan Whiteside will ever cash in on his tremendous potential. The former Marshall standout slid to the second round two seasons ago and at the time, he appeared to be a steal.  So much that the Kings turned down plenty of offers to sell their pick and instead, drafted the athletic 7-footer with the 33rd overall pick. But after two seasons and a total of 19 games played, the team's patience appears to be waning. Following Saturday's game in Las Vegas, Kings summer league co-head coach Alex English made it known that Whiteside was limited to just 12 minutes during the contest because he failed to hustle back on defense. ...

Kings give local boy Ryan Anderson a tour

As first tweeted by our friend Carmichael Dave, Sacramento Kings brass were seen around town Monday with Orlando Magic restricted free agent Ryan Anderson.   That's right folks, the Kings are not just sitting around, watching the 2012 free agent class stroll by. Anderson played high school ball at Oak Ridge in El Dorado Hills and college ball down I-80 at Cal.  The 24-year old forward averaged an impressive 16 points and 7.7 rebounds per game last season for the Magic, taking home the NBA's Most Improved Player award.  He also led the league in 3- point attempts (422) and 3- point makes (166), which equated to a stellar 39.3 percent. While Anderson would present some interesting dilemmas, it appears that this is not a plan B type situation.  Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee not only confirmed that Anderson was in town, but threw out a second bit of interesting information via twitter.  According to Jones, the Kings have already made a contract offer to their own restricted free agent, Jason Thompson. Here is the hitch in the plan.  With Thompson in tow, the Kings have at least five big men on the roster - DeMarcus Cousins, Chuck Hayes, Hassan Whiteside and rookie Thomas Robinson.  They also have Travis Outlaw, a combo-forward on the roster, who can add depth against smaller power forwards.  Is there room for a player like Anderson who has only played the 4 position most of his career? ...
