From When Kingdom Come: Free Agency Guard Options For The Kings

Our compadre, Alex Kramers, broke down the talent pool of the position the Kings need most right now – guards:

The Samuel Dalembert trade eliminated the need to add a veteran free agent, and after the NBA Draft, in which the Kings selected 6’10” DeMarcus Cousins and seven-footer Hassan Whiteside, Sacramento has a sudden overabundance of depth at power forward and center that will give Paul Westphal a multitude of options. Considering that Sean May, Kenny Thomas, Joey Dorsey, and Hilton Armstrong all received playing time at those positions last season, this isn’t a bad problem to have.

But with Tyreke Evans, Beno Udrih, and Francisco Garcia as the only guards currently under contract — the Kings did not give a qualifying offer to the seldom-used Dominic McGuire — President of Basketball Operation Geoff Petrie has acknowledged the need to strengthen the backcourt. Since yet again, superstars such as Dwyane Wade and Joe Johnson are mere pipe-dreams for the small-market franchise, the Kings will likely look at bargain-bin role players (as well as undrafted rookies) in an abundant free agent market.
