Kings Training Camp Recap: Day 4

The coaching staff on day 2 of camp.

Yesterday was a disappointing day at the practice facility.  Media availability changed from evening sessions to morning sessions for Monday and Tuesday, leaving us with a front row seat to an empty gym.  Eventually a few players trickled in to shoot - Tyreke Evans, Francisco Garcia and Lawrence Hill.  A couple more came out for interviews after Coach Paul Westphal spoke.  But over all, it was a quiet day at training camp. ...

More action at Kings practice facility as seven work out today

With players trickling back to Sacramento, the Kings practice facility in Natomas was a bit livelier today.  Francisco Garcia, DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Isaiah Thomas, Jason Thompson, Hassan Whiteside and J.J. Hickson all wandered onto the practice court at various times this afternoon. Since they're currently not obligated to, none of the players addressed media only Jason Thompson addressed media (I had to leave before he did).  But the curtain was raised while a few of them organized a light scrimmage session.  We have some video (without audio) of that, plus additional notes after the jump. ...

Guest Post: Ranking the Sacramento Kings’ top three position battles

Editor's Note: We were originally planning a 3-on-3 roundtable on this topic. But since our friend section214 of Sactown Royalty fame (who we invited to participate) wrote three, extensive and well-thought responses, we figured we'd run his work as an entire guest post . Hey, thanks for inviting me over to the Kingdom. The offices here are much more plush than that dungeon TZ has us writing out of. And the brandy and cigars are a very nice touch. I guess “Insider” sales must be pretty brisk. I’ve given this subject a lot of thought, and by that I mean that I really have not given it much thought at all. But a gig’s a gig, and as this helps meet the requirements of my work release program, I appreciate the opportunity. ... More

Francisco Garcia first King to return to Sacramento practice facility

Swingman Francisco Garcia was the first King to take advantage of the open door policy at the Kings Practice Facility today.  Kings.com provides video of the media session after the jump.  But before that, here are a few highlights.
  • Garcia said he kept in touch with his teammates during the lockout.  He said he believes Tyreke Evans and Jason Thompson will be back in Sacramento on Monday and thinks DeMarcus Cousins will be back Tuesday.  Garcia also spoke to Samuel Dalembert today and would like to see the Haitian center back in a Kings uniform this year.
  • Garcia was in the Dominican Republic for most of the lockout.  He did attend one the union meetings in New York.
  • Garcia on being the first King to return. "It's been a long time.  Actually, it feels like a couple years since we've been back."

Video: Donté Greene on Goon Squad Classic and NBA Lockout

With a 5 pm EST deadline looming, the NBA may be on the verge of implosion (for the umpteenth time it seems, I've lost count).  But on the bright-side, the Goon Squad Classic tips off Sunday, November 20th at the UC Davis Pavilion, with tickets going on sale this Thursday.  News 10's Ryan Yamamoto caught up with Sacramento ...
