Rumor: Omri Casspi on Miami's radar?

The Miami Heat are now linked to the Sacramento Kings' Omri Casspi in trade rumors. Shortly after the report that the Miami Heat were interested in Rudy Gay from the Sacramento Kings, it was quickly debunked by Ethan Skolnick of the Miami Herald. The Rudy Gay rumor, which originated between Ethan and ESPN's Michael Wallace, was enhanced by Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders. What Wallace did say is that the Heat has been talking wing players with a team from the Pacific Division -- and it was the Kings, but now Ethan is saying that it is Omri Casspi. Casspi is a 27-year old small forward...

I'm done defending the Kings

Until the Kings prove worthy of being defended, they no longer receive the benefit of the doubt. Everybody has a breaking point, and mine came today. I'll remain a fan of the Kings, and will still pay attention to everything that happens. But after this week's public embarrassment, make that another public embarrassment, I'm done defending this organization. I was listening to the latest episode of The Lowe Post, and Zach Lowe was discussing the state of the Kings with Sam Amick. Lowe was exploding at the dysfunction of the Kings, and instinctively I found myself thinking of the...

Maybe the Kings aren't firing Karl after all

NBA Trade Rumor: Kings reject offer from Cavaliers for Timofey Mozgov

The NBA Trade Deadline is just 9 days away, and the rumor mill is churning away.  The latest rumor regarding the Sacramento Kings comes from ESPN's Brian Windhorst, who went on a radio show in Cleveland to say that the Kings have rebuffed offers from the Cavaliers for their starting center, Timofey Mozgov. Windhorst doesn't make it clear what the Cavs wanted in return for Mozgov, but even still, it makes little sense for the Kings to trade for a player at a position in which they already have much depth.  With DeMarcus Cousins, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos on board, Mozgov does...

This NBA All-Star ATM machine was built specifically for DeMarcus Cousins

This is pretty hilarious. DeMarcus Cousins is headed up to Toronto to play in the All-Star game and participate in the skills challenge. At least while he's there, he won't have any problems withdrawing money. Ah, thank you reddit! (h/t reddit)

The Sacramento Kings will fire George Karl before the All-Star Break

George Karl's days in Sacramento are soon to be over.  According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Kings are planning to fire Karl in the coming days.  Whether that means he's coached his last game (a 120-100 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, their 8th loss in 9 games) or will coach the game in Philadelphia on Wednesday hardly matters at this point.  He's gone, almost exactly a year after the Kings hired him in the first place. This news is as unsurprising as it is depressing.  Just two weeks ago the Kings were in the thick of the playoff race and playing their best basketball in years.  They...

The Kings are a mess, basically

Yahoo! Sports’ (The Vertical) Chris Mannix just dropped an incredibly important column in regards to the Sacramento Kings, the relationship the organization has with George Karl, and where this saga is heading. If you want the short version, I’ll steal a line from Mannix here, "Sacramento Kings coach George Karl is getting fired, an inevitability that grew closer following a 128-119 shellacking by the Boston Celtics on Sunday." Well, there you have it. Mannix also sourced a lot of new information that is neither pro-Karl, nor pro-Kings. No party comes away clean here, just as it...

Kings vs. Cavaliers Preview: Sacramento looks to vanquish King James and end their skid

Well, the Sacramento Kings lost again. On a Super Bowl Sunday morning affair, the Boston Celtics hung 46 points on the Kings defense in the first quarter and forced Sacramento to play three quarters of catch up. Spoiler alert: the Sacramento Kings couldn't do it. Sacramento's next chance for redemption lies in Monday's matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers. With a big three that features an athletic point guard who can shoot, a stretch four who can shoot and LeBron James, the Sacramento Kings could very well give up 1000 first quarter points. The game can be seen on CSN-CA, heard on KHTK...

Boston Celtics cruise to 128-119 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Super Bowl Sunday

The Celtics scored 46 points in the first quarter against a hapless Kings defense on their way to a season-high 128 points and an easy victory. The Celtics defeated the Kings 128-119 on Sunday on a day where defense was non-existent for both teams. The Celtics got off to a sizzling start against the worst defense in the NBA, and continued to pour it on the rest of the way. The Kings made a run in the fourth quarter, but Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas ended any ideas the Kings may have had about a comeback with clutch buckets down the stretch. The first quarter was insane, with a combined...

Nets look to avoid another loss vs Kings

The losses keep piling up. The Nets fell behind big early, made a valiant comeback effort, but ended up losing by double digits anyways. It was their fifth straight loss and things have managed to get even worse for the club. This is the first night of a back-to-back for the Nets. They're in Philadelphia to play the 76ers on Saturday night. Coming into Brooklyn will be the Sacramento Kings. They were expected to be a catastrophe this season, but have managed to hold it together and are competing for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. They lost their last game, a 107-102 decision...

Pacers final score: Kings hold off Pacers 108-97

DeMarcus Cousins exploded for 48 points to lead Sacramento past Indiana. Paul George led Indiana with 34. A slow start for the Indiana Pacers once again put them in an inescapable hole, putting them into the loss column for the second straight game without holding a lead. DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings scorched the Pacers to open the game at 22-8, and though Indiana made pushes in the second and third quarters, they could never overcome the deficit. There were some positive individual performances for the Pacers, but none of that mattered in the face of the complete dominance of...

Lakers vs. Kings Postgame Podcast: Available after the game

Will the third time be the charm for the against the ? The Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night, the same team D'Angelo Russell had arguably his best game as a pro against a few weeks ago, scoring 27 points before telling the media (and by extension, fans everywhere) "Y'all ain't seen nothing yet." Could the rookie follow up his brash claim with another strong effort against DeMarcus Cousins' Kings? Could Kobe Bryant have one last big game in him against his formerly bitter rivals? How did the team look in their first game following recent rumors that Nick...
