  • Three questions the Sacramento Kings must answer this season

    The Kings had an active summer, and that included moving on from a lot of guys on the roster: Rudy Gay, Darren Collison, Ty Lawson, Tyreke Evans, Arron Afflalo, and Ben McLemore among others were gone. To replace them they drafted De’Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson, rolled the dice on Harry Giles, the Kings finally got Bogdan Bogdanovic to come over, then in free agency landed some solid veteran free agents in George Hill, Zach Randolph, and Vince Carter. 1) How do the Kings balance the minutes between their best young players and their veterans?

  • New-look, youthful Kings try to gain ground in tough West

    The Sacramento Kings have moved on from emotional big man DeMarcus Cousins, who they traded away to New Orleans in February. While new guard George Hill knows the turnaround will take time, he is counting on helping to build a winning culture as everybody works to develop chemistry on the court and off it. The Kings went 32-50 last season and missed the playoffs for the 11th straight year.

  • Young Kings look to get out and run: 'It’s going to be a fun way to play'

    Since the moment Vivek Ranadivé purchased the Sacramento Kings, he’s begged, if not openly demanded that the team push the tempo. Under Michael Malone, the word “pace” became the beginning and end of every sentence. It carried through the George Karl era, but there was very little talk about the speed of the game under Dave Joerger last season. To force the action only took away from the franchise’s primary strength, All-Star big man, DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings weren’t built to run. Cousins wasn’t built to run. Pushing the tempo only put more stress on the 6-foot-11, 280-pound center. Cousins is now out of the picture and Sacramento has the assets to crank up the speed of the game. If the early

  • BDL's 2017-18 Season Previews: New Orleans Pelicans, an odd NBA experiment

  • Kings extend Vlade Divac contract, pick up option on coach Joerger

    Sacramento  GM Vlade Divac and head coach Dave Joerger get to. The Kings announced Wednesday the organization has extended the contract of Divac and picked up the fourth-year option on coach Dave Joerger, keeping both of those men in their positions through 2020. It’s good to see Kings’ owner Vivek Ranadive trying to add a little stability to the franchise rather than making changes again out of frustration.

  • Kings rookie Harry Giles draws lofty comparison

    It’s been a summer of change for the Sacramento Kings. A roster upheaval has 10 new players vying for minutes once training camp opens on Tuesday. The coaching staff has been bolstered and fresh blood was added to the front office in the form of analytics guru Luke Bornn and assistant general manager Brandon Williams. On Thursday, one more piece to the puzzle was brought in to help develop the team’s young core. With the hiring of Galen Duncan as the franchise’s new Vice President of the Kings Academy and Professional Development, Sacramento is making a major investment in the future of their team. According to the team’s official press release, “Duncan is responsible for implementation of the

  • Bogdanovic steers Serbia into EuroBasket final

    Russia's Aleksei Shved won the individual shoot-out up against Bogdan Bogdanovic on Friday, but it was the Sacramento Kings' point guard and his Serbia team who progressed to the final of the EuroBasket thanks to an 87-79 victory in Istanbul. Of Bogdanovic's haul, 13 points arrived in a first half that saw Serbia mount a 14-0 scoring run, doing considerable damage to Russia's hopes. Bogdanovic and Shved were central figures right up until the close, the Serbia star notching five points in the final two minutes to afford his team some breathing space.

  • Zach Randolph cleared of marijuana possession charge in plea deal

    Zach Randolph earned three NBA Community Assist Awards during his eight years in Memphis. Los Angeles prosecutors dropped the misdemeanor marijuana charge against Zach Randolph in exchange for the Sacramento Kings forward’s no contest plea to one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest and his commitment to 150 hours of community service, according to multiple reports. Randolph was originally charged with felony marijuana possession with intent to sell following an early August incident in which police discovered “a large crowd of people smoking, playing loud music and blocking the roadway” in L.A.’s Nickerson Gardens neighborhood.
