Jerry Reynolds, Kings Director of Player Personnel and long-time member of the team's television broadcast. Reynolds has been a fan favorite since the team moved here in 1985. He has worn just about every hat imaginable for a franchise that has had more than its fair share of ups and downs. Last weekend I had a chance to just sit and watch the first period of the Kings summer league game against the Lakers, but that conversation was just two guys catching a game. On Friday, however, I was able to get something a little more formal for your listening pleasure. Excerpt Reynolds on if you can really learn about a player in a short summer league stint:
"I think you can, but I think maybe it's a little bit different. I think what you can learn, is who can't do it. To me...for the most part you don't want to make too much of it, because guys, whether they're averaging 12 points a game or 15 points a game or whatever, that's all just jibber-jabber at some point. But some players that you see, clearly it's just not going to work. You know, in a five game period, you just say - this guy is not a pro and he's not gonna be." -Jerry ReynoldsListen after the jump... ... More
lost the edge that made him great. Following the Kings' final summer league game in Las Vegas, Jimmer finally said what needed to be said, for himself and for everyone involved.
"I think I changed my game too much," Jimmer said on the NBATV telecast. "I was too passive. I was trying to fit in a little bit too much. That's what I was working on this year. Just getting that confidence back. Just getting that stroke back and just being aggressive when I'm on the floor. That's what they (Kings) got me for, to score the basketball and make plays for this team."I don't know about you, but I feel better now, and no, I'm not joking. ... More

It all began All-Star Weekend when NBA commissioner David Stern gently picked up the Sacramento Kings and placed them on the tracks of the craziest roller coaster ride known to man. For months, the ride went up and down, side to side, splashing through pools of water, until a reprieve of sorts brought the ride to an abrupt halt. While plenty of fans were able to get off and take a break, the hardcore fan couldn't quite lift the hand rail and got locked in for another turnaround. That turn? Draft season. We've done our best to bring you top notch draft coverage through prospect profiles, podcasts with some of the most relevant guests and mock drafts from a variety of sources, so here is a recap. ...

Bringing us an inside-perspective of the draft process for the Sacramento Kings is Director of Player Personnel and long-time color analyst, Jerry Reynolds. Highlights
- Jerry shares his take on scouting today versus 20-plus years ago.
- On Brandon Knight, Kemba Walker and Jimmer Fredette: "I think they're all good prospects. I don't think any of them will fail in the NBA. Now, are they the best prospects? I'm not going to get into that. But I think they certainly all perform well."
- On the possibility of trading out of the pick: "I will say this, I don't see much interest in moving up, so to speak, considering this draft. I think it'd be more likely to even move down. But probably neither."
