Vegas odds think De’Aaron Fox has a shot at winning Rookie of the Year

Vegas puts Fox at the same odds as Jayson Tatum Sacramento Kings rookie De’Aaron Fox is likely to make an immediate impact this season, at least according to Las Vegas bookmakers. The William Hill Nevada sportsbook has Fox at 8-1 odds to win Rookie of the Year, according to ESPN. That puts Fox tied with Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics for the 5th best odds at winning. Lonzo Ball is favored at 9-5 odds, and Ben Simmons is at 5-2. Both should play a large role for their teams, which surely has an impact. Fox should play solid minutes, but will be behind George Hill for the Kings unless...

How will the Kings stretch the floor?

How will the Kings stretch the floor?

Our front office seemingly ignored the modern power forward in free agency. Last season, the Kings were one of the best teams in the league at one thing: shooting the long-ball. In fact, they tied for the fourth best 3-point percentage in the league, nailing 37.6% of their attempts from beyond the arc. The majority of guards, wings, and bigs that spent significant time on the court were able to knock down shots, especially in the latter part of the year. In the post-Boogie era, the Kings accuracy increased by 4.2%, going from 36.5% prior to the trade, all the way to 40.7% which was behind...

What would a Spurs-themed NFL helmet look like?

What would a Spurs-themed NFL helmet look like?

The Sacramento Kings have an answer to that all important question. San Antonio has long been a city starving for an NFL team, and while we all love our San Antonio Spurs more than life itself, we’re still Texans and will always have a place in our hearts for football. Despite constantly being teased as a potential relocation or expansion destination, there are few signs of it happening any time soon. So with no San Antonio-themed football gear coming to town, why not do the next best thing and create Spurs-themed gear? Well, that’s exactly what the Sacramento Kings did for several...
