Kings attempted to trade for Klay Thompson, lacked trade assets

Kings attempted to trade for Klay Thompson, lacked trade assets

The Sacramento Kings made a strong push to trade for Klay Thompson, but lacked the assets to complete the deal. Klay Thompson agreed to a four-year, $70 million dollar extension with the Golden State Warriors on Friday.  While it looked like Klay and the Warriors wouldn't reach a deal before Friday's deadline, the Sacramento Kings may have had a hand in the deal getting done. Kings made late push to try to acquire Klay Thompson for anyone not named Cousins or Gay, a source said. Might have helped push GS agreement — Marc J.

Do The Clippers Have That Championship Pedigree?

The Los Angeles Clippers have the unfamiliar spot of being one of the four or five teams expected to win a championship, the big question is are they ready to be considered in that class or are they still just a playoff team? Editor's note: When we looked to expand the contributor staff at Clips Nation recently, one suggestion from the readership was to try to find someone who could provide an outsider perspective. Kevin Nesgoda is the managing editor of Sonics Rising, an NBA blog without an NBA team right now. Many Sonics fans, Kevin included, have adopted a rooting interest in the...

Game Preview: Fiesty Phoenix Suns take on old, injured San Antonio Spurs

You might think I'm referring to the players, but I'm really referring to the Suns managing partner Robert Sarver and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. If we're lucky, the chicken suit storyline will live on for another day. After a silly little dustup between the Suns owner Robert Sarver and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich in preseason two weeks ago rekindled a 10 year old slap-fight, the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio face off in an early-season matchup tonight in Phoenix. Appropriately, the Phoenix Suns will host the San Antonio Spurs on Halloween in what the Suns call an "Orange Friday". That...

Kings vs. Trail Blazers Fan Predictions

Below are a series of prediction questions for tonight's game. The first four questions will be asked every game, while the 5th will change each game. Point value for predictions are listed next to the questions. If you believe that more than one player will lead a category, you can vote for multiple players, and this is worth double points if you are correct, but zero if you are wrong. Alternately, if you only guess one player when multiple players are tied, you get zero points. All submissions must be input before tip-off. Any submissions after tip-off will not count. You are allowed only...

Clippers-Lakers preview: Reversal of fortune

The Clippers are by far the best team in Los Angeles at this point, even if they haven't played like it yet.

Lakers vs. Clippers preview: Trick or treat

Happy Halloween. Please give us a treat, Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers return to Staples Center to begin their second back-to-back of the season, taking on the other Los Angeles team, the Clippers. The Clippers happen to be in the second half of their own back-to-back, barely skidding by a Oklahoma City Thunder team without Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The Lakers are in serious danger of beginning the season with four straight losses. The Clippers are a much better team, and the purple and gold then visit the Golden State Warriors on Saturday for their home opener. Considering the...

Julius Randle's injury clarifies the Lakers' roadmap

Julius Randle's injury clarifies the Lakers' roadmap

Once a murky road, LA's direction going forward has been simplified with their young forward's injury. There's nothing good about Julius Randle's injury. No matter what anyone may say, a young, promising power forward has been sidelined at the advent of his NBA career. My colleague Harrison Faigen tried to find silver linings peering through this horrific injury, putting a reluctant smile on an other morose situation. However, in my opinion, there's really nothing the Lakers gain in a positive sense. All this injury does is clarify what the Lakers do going forward. Two games in, the Lakers...

Nik Stauskas looks to add muscle as he transitions into NBA

Nik Stauskas looks to add muscle as he transitions into NBA

As the NBA's shooting guards greet Nik Stauskas by trying to overpower him, he knows he needs to hit the weight room. The Sacramento Kings drafted Nik Stauskas for his shooting, ball handling and basketball IQ. But to have long-term impact in the NBA, the 21-year-old knows he has to bulk up to handle the rigor of the league and what teams are already doing after scouting him - overpowering him in the post. We saw plenty of it in the preseason, but in Wednesday's loss to the Golden State Warriors, Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes put Stauskas to the real test, and it worked. "They tried to...

The Daily Clipper — Eagle Down Edition

Time for the doom-and-gloom crowd to get a little perspective. The Clippers might be underwhelming at the moment, but at least they're not Oklahoma City. First off, the commenters bemoaning that the Clippers don't look like a title contender? Please. It's one game. They looked bad in that one game, but don't take that as a referendum on a season. Even a month of games isn't a fair representation of a team's ability (see: Clippers' defensive efficiency last November, Clippers' overall defensive efficiency). Heck, the Spurs last year looked very average even deep into January; they only had...

Kings vs. Trail Blazers Preview: Time to get back on track

Sacramento's season didn't get off to a good start as they dropped opening night to the Warriors, but they have a chance of redemption this Halloween.  The Blazers aren't much easier than the Warriors, but the Kings can't play much worse than they did on Wednesday.  Tonight's action tips off at 7:00 pm tonight on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1. Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers.  Wednesday night saw the Kings turn the ball over 27 times, an absurd amount for an NBA team.  The Kings can't win a game against the Philadelphia 76ers let alone the...
