After six years of futility, the Sacramento Kings finally have the versatility to compete.
Kings clear cap space by renouncing rights of four players.
Darnell Jackson is headed abroad. The free agent big man, who spent last season with the Kings, signed with BC Donetsk in the Ukraine, according to Sportando (via HoopsHype).

With the offseason schedule agitated due to the NBA lockout, pro-am leagues have received plenty of attention this summer. No two have garnered more recognition than the Drew League, played in Los Angeles and the Goodman League, based in Washington DC.
On Saturday, August 20th, the two leagues collide. The contest, ...
The best part of waking up, is Kings youtube videos in your cup. Today we've got a double dose of rookie point guard Isaiah Thomas out of Washington. Last season, the Sacramento Kings brought in world traveler Pooh Jeter
to mix up the tempo off the bench. Unfortunately, Jeter got lost in the shuffle, leading the Kings to decline the second year option on his contract. Isaiah Thomas will get a chance to fill this role for the 2011-12 Sacramento Kings. Although similar in stature, there is a huge difference in play style between Pooh and Isaiah. Where Jeter liked to use his mid-range game, Thomas is an attacking guard who can score inside or outside.
Like yesterday's star, Tyler Honeycutt, Isaiah Thomas fell into the second round of the 2011 NBA draft, so he has an uphill battle in front of him. During the NBA combine, players are measured with and without shoes. In Isaiah's case, they may need to measure him with and without the chip on his shoulder.

Really no surprise ...
Paul Westphal is a completely likable guy. On January 6, 2011, he won the 300th game of his career, a feat that he was unaware of until after the game. Unfortunately, as the coach of the Sacramento Kings, Westphal has lost more games than he or anyone else would like. There are certainly many reasons for the losses, ...
I must warn you – I can't speak of Pooh Jeter
without obvious bias trickling out in every word.
He was by far the most entertaining bro on my beloved Hapoel Jerusalem squad last season, and personally speaking, he was my second favorite player (the first was Uri Kukia, an undersized, unathletic forward with no discern...
There's no need to bring back the "on a boat" jokes/memes but there's only a 45-minute window during each day that I can be clever and it isn't at 8am.
Here are a couple of videos of Kings' backup point guard Pooh Jeter
talking about his time in Spain, Israel and the NBA path. Pooh seems like a really good ...
Today might end up being Pooh Jeter
Day if people keep writing about him.
Sebastian Pruiti (who is in the process of taking a stranglehold over NBA blogging) from Nets Are Scorching and NBA Playbook has been breaking down the games of guys with international pedigrees who are on their way over to the NBA this summer. He did ...
