Notes and analysis from Sacramento Kings training camp.
Getting to know Sacramento Kings rookie Tyler Honeycutt
Last night, camp began with a Q&A with Geoff Petrie, followed by two hours of viewing time during the team's scrimmage. We have seen more basketball action in the first two days of camp this season than all 20-plus days of last season combined
Day two of training camp for the Sacramento Kings wrapped up at about 8 pm here at the Kings practice facility in Natomas. Like yesterday, James will have an exhaustive recap complete with analysis of tonight's action in a later post. For now, I'll leave you with a few some bullets to digest for the evening.
It's Jimmer Time! And also Tyler Time! And wait ... Isaiah Time! The Sacramento Kings announced this evening that first and foremost, they need a new pen, this one is all out of ink, and secondly, that while they were busy inking Chuck Hayes and Marcus Thornton, they had a little bit more time to sign all three of their ...

Our friend Sam Amick of SI.com has landed the new tentative agreement
. While many are focusing on the finer nuances of the BRI split and exceptions, Kings fans should be looking at two specific items.
First and foremost, a new provision requires all teams spend a minimum of 85% of the $58-million cap. What does that mean Kings fans?

That leaves a whopping $17.5 million to spend on retaining restricted free agent Marcus Thornton, as well as signing second round picks Isaiah Thomas and Tyler Honeycutt
. $17.5 is the MINIMUM
. In total, the Kings are approximately $26.2 million under the salary cap.
Now, here is something new and exciting for you CBA geeks out there.

Today was supposed to be media day at Power Balance Pavilion. It's kind of like the first day of school. You get to see a bunch of friends that you haven't seen all summer, meet the new kids and take pictures. Sure, there would be a little bit of homework after, but this was supposed to be a good day, a day of new ...
