Highlights
  • On working out with Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook: "When we work out together, we always do different things.  There’s things that I do better than them and there’s things they do better than me.  So it’s always good to work out with them and try to learn new things from their games."
  • Tyreke is no stranger to the game of new teammate JJ Hickson.  He says he's known the Kings newest addition for "a long time", having battled against Hickson in high school.
  • Amar'e Stoudemire hopes to round up teammates for an unofficial Knicks training camp.  Zach Randolph has expressed doing the same with his Grizzlies .  Is Tyreke planning something similar for the Kings? "I was thinking about that, calling some of the players up, trying to get them to Sacramento early.  I know it's going to be pretty hard for the rookies because they haven't set up yet with (homes).  But I mean, the guys that have been playing, the veterans and the guys who have been playing a couple years on our team...I was definitely thinking of calling them up and (trying) to get a local gym in Sacramento and having a training camp."
  • Tyreke has been keeping busy this offseason also through his work with VSP Vision Care.  We highlighted one of two videos he starred in from a four-part webisode series, which offers vision health tips.  Check the rest on the Eyefiles tab of VSP's Facebook Page.

Does Tyreke Evans need to read Cowbell Kingdom?

Sports, Evans "has some questions" about his place in the Kings world.  And with the lockout in place, they can't answer this quandary. “I don’t know how we are playing it,” Evans ... More

Your midday cup o’ Kings: Francisco Garcia

As the roster sits today, the Sacramento Kings have only two players over the age of 25 - the 31 year-old John Salmons, who was acquired on draft day in a trade with the Bucks, and Francisco Garcia, the longest tenured King, who will be 30 on December 14th. It's strange how time flies. It seems like only yesterday that Francisco was a rookie riding the pine for a Kings playoff team that included Mike Bibby, Brad Miller, Ron Artest, Bonzi Wells and Shareef Abdur-Rahim. These clips below bring us back to a different Cisco. Injuries have derailed and slowed the 29 year old wing over the last three years. Three seasons ago it was ankle injuries that cost him 27 games. Two seasons ago, a freak accident in the weight room resulting in a catastrophic arm injury, costing Cisco all but 25 games. Last season, Garcia missed 24 games with a left calf strain that took a long time to heal because of a set back during recovery. By seasons end, Garcia appeared worn down, not entirely unexpected after missing so much time during the year. More after the jump... ... More

Your morning cup o’ Kings: Donté Greene

The Kings haven't had many personalities like Donté Greene.  Sure, there have been characters like Vlade Divac and Ron Artest, but Donté Greene is something different.  Basically, Greene is a multimedia machine - the star of the Donté Greene show, Twitter and Youstream aficionado- all of which make him a fan favorite. Where Greene has cultivated a following off the court, he has struggled with consistency on the floor.  Greene is nothing short of an enigma.  So much talent, flashes of brilliance, great size, million dollar smile, but ... Coming into training camp last season, Donté Greene and Omri Casspi were supposed to fight it out for the starting gig.  Greene never even got off the ground, coming into camp at 260-pounds, a good 25-30 pounds heavier than his previous playing weight.  After starting 50 games in his second season, Greene saw that number slashed to just 21 starts and an incredible 13 DNP-CDs.   From possible starter to bench player and now, who knows what.  After the Kings brought in small forwards John Salmons and rookie Tyler Honeycutt, they shipped out Casspi to clear up a little room, but Greene will still have to battle to earn minutes at a crowded position that also includes Francisco Garcia and even Tyreke Evans at times.

Your morning cup o’ Kings: Tyreke Evans

Today we have an abbreviated, late edition of cup o' Kings.  There are a ton of clips of Tyreke Evans as both a college and professional player floating around the world of Youtube. But if you search hard enough, you can find some incredible footage of Tyreke Evans as a teenage phenom. After a spectacular first season with the Kings, which included such feats as winning the NBA's Rookie of the Year Award and finishing with averages of more than 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per game, Evans seemed primed to take a big leap as a sophomore.  Unfortunately, a nasty case of plantar fasciitis really slowed the former Memphis star, forcing him to miss 25 games and limiting his mobility throughout the season. Year three is a big season for Tyreke. The Kings have already added John Salmons and Jimmer Fredette in an attempt to better space the floor and cause more mismatch situations for Evans. If he can stay healthy, continue to improve his perimeter game and build on-court chemistry with DeMarcus Cousins, both the Kings and Tyreke Evans are primed for a big leap in 2011-12.
