The Kings made waves last year with their trade of Rudy Gay. Will they go for another home run this year? In Sacramento Kings history, the biggest team improvements have almost always come about because of big trades. In 1991, the Kings traded for Mitch Richmond. In 1998 they traded Richmond for Webber. In 2006 the Kings sent Peja Stojakovic to Indiana for Ron Artest. And last year the Kings sent John Salmons, Chuck Hayes, Greivis Vasquez and Patrick Patterson to Toronto for Aaron Gray, Quincy Acy and Rudy Gay. That last deal can't be considered anything but a success for the...

Rudy Gay was a late addition to Team USA, and in fact, he didnt even join the squad until after the weeklong training camp in Las Vegas in late July. But in a brief telephone chat from Spain, the Kings forward said he welcomed the chance to compete in another FIBA World Cup partly because he enjoyed playing on Mike Krzyzewskis 2010 national team four years ago.

Team USA advanced with ease, while DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay had good games. Team USA defeated Mexico 86-63 on Saturday, advancing themselves to FIBA World Cup Quarterfinals. Team USA jumped out to an early lead and never let up. For a team that's struggled in the first half throughout the tournament, it was a positive development as Team USA moves forward. DeMarcus Cousins had another strong showing, scoring 11 points to go along with seven rebounds, two blocks, and an assist. Cousins had a perfect shooting night, going 5-5 from the field and 1-1 from the free throw line. Rudy...

USA! USA! USA! DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay and the rest of Team USA made their debut in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, dominating Finland 114 to 55. The game was so one-sided that the United States outscored Finland 29 to 2 in the 2nd quarter alone. Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins both played well coming off of USA's bench. Rudy scored 10 points on 5-9 shooting along with 5 rebounds, a block and a couple steals. James Harden and Rudy hooked up for a sick alley-oop early on in the game: Cousins scored 9 points on 3-4 shooting and led all rebounders with 10. Klay Thompson led all scorers...

With Rudy Gay now on the USA team, some in Grizz Nation are left with thoughts of "What if?" concerning the former Grizzly. Did we end up on the better end of the deal? Would the Grizzlies have won a championship by now had the deal never happened? Would Lionel Hollins still be the head coach? There are even more questions that come to mind, and I'm going to try to tackle a few of them to see if Grizzly Land is better or worse without Rudy Gay. Let's say, just for a moment, that Rudy hadn't been traded. No Tayshaun Prince. No Ed Davis. Now, let's take a trip to the twilight zone: The...

The United States men's basketball team played their final exhibition match before the FIBA World Cup today, beating Slovenia 101 to 71. DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay both came off the bench for the national team, playing about 14 minutes apiece. Cousins had a rough offensive game, scoring just 6 points on 2-7 shooting, but he was very active defensively, grabbing 4 rebounds to go along with 3 steals and 3 blocks. One of those steals led to a very emphatic dunk on the fast break with the assist from none other than Rudy Gay: Rudy himself scored 11 points on an efficient 4 of 6 from the...

The Kings will be represented on Team USA for the first time in years as DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay both made the final cut for the 2014 FIBA World Cup. The speculation on whether or not the Kings would be represented on Team USA for the 2014 FIBA World Cup is officially over. Jerry Colangelo announced the final roster last night after USA Basketball's 112-86 win over Puerto Rico and it was good news for Kings fans as both DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay were named to the team. Cousins and Gay join Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, DeMar DeRozan, Andre Drummond, Kenneth Faried, James Harden,...

Both Kings will go to Spain with Team USA. USA Basketball announced its final cuts before the 2014 FIBA World Cup late on Friday, and both DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay survived. Both will represent the United State when the World Cup opens in Spain in a week. The final four cuts were Chandler Parsons, Damian Lillard, Kyle Korver and Gordon Hayward. That brings the roster to 12. On Friday against Puerto Rico, Gay was one of the first players off of the bench, scoring 13 points in 16 minutes on 5-9 shooting. Cousins was the second big man off of the bench behind Mason Plumlee. He played 12...

Team USA played their second exhibition game yesterday against former King Francisco Garcia and the Dominican Republic and dominated, winning 105 to 62. It was DeMarcus Cousins' first game for Team USA as he missed the first exhibition against Brazil with a knee injury. Kings forward Rudy Gay came off the bench to score 13 points on 5-9 shooting, tying him with DeMar DeRozan for the scoring lead. Gay also tallied 3 rebounds, a steal and a game-high 3 blocks in 17 minutes. Center DeMarcus Cousins played 16 minutes and only scored 2 points (1-1 from the field) but did lead the game with...
