NBA Free Agency 2017: Kings could be targeting a high-caliber vet

NBA Free Agency 2017: Kings could be targeting a high-caliber vet

Players like Paul Millsap, Andre Iguodala, Jrue Holiday and George Hill could be on the Kings radar. The NBA Free Agent frenzy is set to begin in the coming days, and the Kings have more money to spend than anyone else. How they spend that money will have a huge impact going forward and also provide a ton of insight into the path this team wants to take. For those of us hoping the Kings take it slow and focus on the youth movement, you might want to buckle up, because Vlade Divac and co. look like they have a different idea. Sam Amick joined Jason Ross on the Locked on Kings podcast, and...

Buddy Hield’s work ethic is incredible

Buddy Hield’s work ethic is incredible

Buddy’s drive to succeed is never going to be a question mark. When the Kings traded for Buddy Hield there were certain unknowns. After a slow start in New Orleans, could Buddy find success at the NBA level? Could he defend, could he handle the ball? He had a great run after being traded to Sacramento and answered a lot of those questions. But one thing that was never a question was Hield’s work ethic. Buddy improved every year at Oklahoma, and stories of his work ethic and drive to improve continue to come through. NBA is holding a Basketball Without Borders camp in the Bahamas July...

Opinion : The Sacramento Kings Should Bring Back Isaiah Cousins

The Sacramento Kings drafted Isaiah Cousins last year but never signed him to a contract that brought him to the Kings’ regular season. He deserves a shot on an NBA team, and the Kings should give him the opportunity to prove himself.

Where do the Kings stand heading into Free Agency?

Where do the Kings stand heading into Free Agency?

The Kings have the most cap space in the league, but only four open roster spots. With the draft behind us, the next thing Kings fans can look forward to is Free Agency. Last year the Kings were frugal and smart, acquiring veterans on short deals that retained flexibility. The Kings exercised that flexibility by cutting Matt Barnes after the DeMarcus Cousins trade and stretching his contract and also waiving Anthony Tolliver and Arron Afflalo by their guarantee dates. Because of these moves, the Kings are set to have the most cap space in the league by quite a margin. Current estimates...

The Kings have finally embraced the rebuild

The Kings have finally embraced the rebuild

Sacramento doesn’t seem to be taking shortcuts anymore. The Kings have been “rebuilding” since I was in high school. Since then I’ve graduated from college, started a career, seen my friends get married and seen the Kings in the playoffs exactly zero times. In fact, it’s been so long since the Kings were good, we probably shouldn’t call any efforts to become good “rebuilding” at all, but rather just “building”. There are many reasons why the Kings have struggled to climb into relevancy, most of all having to do with impatience and worse, incompetence. The Kings have...

Tyreke Evans is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Although he does bring in unique assets, the Sacramento Kings shouldn’t bring him back.

In his rookie year, Evans averaged around 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 […] Opinion: Let Tyreke Evans Go in Free Agency - A Royal Pain - A Royal Pain - A Sacramento Kings Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
