    JaKarr Sampson: Two-Way contract

    I just can't see any significant issues with this guy. He's hungry and the effort is always there. He's pretty solid on defense, and while not a great offensive player, he seems to know his limits. I can't think of a better player for a Two-Way contract, and the following article explains...

    KINGS! Summer League in Vegas! GM 1 7/7/17

    My thoughts on each young player - Fox: Incredibly fast. Needs to polish a few things but looks to have superstar potential. Mason: Had trouble finishing, but I'm not concerned. I think he will compose himself. Jackson: Very thin, but looked solid. Not sure he can provide much besides...

    Otto Porter Max contract offer now moot

    I'm fairly confident that Washington will match the offer. Now, with that said... I love Otto. I loved him in the draft, and I like him just as much now. He's one of those "intangibles" type of guys. He's the guy who does all the right things that don't necessarily always show up in a box...

    [Game] Kings @ Clippers - 4/12/17 - 7:30PT/10:30ET

    Willie is nailing these jumpers like he's Chris Bosh. Da heck?

    Well, I think we can say with a modicum of certainty that this one is over. WCS might disagree, however. Guy is killing it out there.

    Papa G has basically been invisible tonight.

    Make that a dub dub for Willie. Hitting some long jumpers too.

    [Game] Kings @ Clippers - 4/12/17 - 7:30PT/10:30ET

    WCS with 9 PTS 10 REB 4 AST and a block at the halfway point...only 18 minutes played. Me likey very much.

    What's happened to WCS?

    Not sure whether I love this or hate this. The issue is with the way he said things. It looks as if his role was to grab what's available, or at least, he makes it same as though Joerger gave him that role. If that's the case I am ecstatic. This would mean he may have had the rebounding...

    What's happened to WCS?

    Willie has been crashing the glass lately. This is what we need on a consistent basis moving forward. It's really nice to see, and inspires confidence in his development. Last 5 games: 27 MIN 10 REB 34 MIN 14 REB 29 MIN 8 REB 33 MIN 9 REB 33 MIN 14 REB

    What's happened to WCS?

    WCS has looked better lately. His rebounding has been better over the last few games. Even looked OK tonight against Rudy Gobrute.

    [Game] Kings v. Jazz - 3/29/17 - 7:30PT/10:30ET

    If Ben had not gone off tonight like he was supposed to three years ago, this game would have been MUCH uglier. I love our young guys, and I enjoy watching them, but they sorely missed that vet leadership on the floor tonight. And no, Ty Lawson does not count.

    [Game] Kings v. Grizzlies - 3/27/17 - 7:30PT/10:30ET

    I love Temple. He's versatile, tenacious and overall just a very, very solid player. He's really built a nice career out of nothing (and has made some nice $ in doing so). For me, he's a perfectly ideal bench guy. He seems to have great basketball IQ and with his defense, could be a situational...

    Buddy Hield

    So can we talk about how good this guy has been since he joined our team? 27 MPG: 15 PPG/ 4 RPG/ 1 SPG FG% 49 3P% 44 I know, I know. He's old for a rookie...but he's still a rookie! He looks like what Ben McLemore should have been.

    Kings beat Grizzlies!

    I know some people will be disappointed with the win here, but I'm excited. Nothing builds a winning culture like actually WINNING. I'm all for getting a great draft pick, but I believe the fastest way to winning in the future is winning now. Perpetual losing kills morale.
