    Trade targets

    They need to remove Hield from this team, even if it's just an addition by subtraction type move. He's unprofessional and doesn't understand or respect competitive spirit. In other words, he adds to a losing culture. Get the guy and his contract out of here, even if it means not getting an...

    Blow It Up

    Good point about not making a statement about "tanking" or not. Vlade probably would have laid his cards on the table, never realizing it could hurt his chances in trade discussions

    They're both decent G-league players. That is their peak

    Yeah, my definition of "working" or "potential to work" might be be different than some others. I couldn't care less about a playin seed, who has no legit chance to be dangerous in the playoffs

    Then if I were you, I'd trade Haliburton for someone who fits better with Fox. For me, I can visualize Haliburton as the lead guard on a good playoff team more than I can Fox. Don't see it with them starting together

    He's a talented player, but unless his outside shot becomes consistent, I don't see him as the lead guard on a contending team. Definitely not starting with another point guard

    Again, I wouldn't trade Fox unless we are getting an established player in return, who is a better fit with Haliburton

    I just don't see the pairing leading this team as a dangerous playoff team or contender. To me, if there isn't real potential for that, then try to find a starting guard pairing that does have that potential.

    Ok. We need a good shooting guard to play along with Haliburton

    Just not a big believer in a dual point guard starting lineup. We need a real shooting guard, who plays on both ends

    The over/under on reaching 70 points for this game? This is one of the worst shooting NBA teams that I can recall

    Is It Time To Turn Over The Reins To Doug Christie?

    The more I think of this, the more Christie is in an odd spot, whichever way it goes

    Is It Time To Turn Over The Reins To Doug Christie?

    A likely scenario, if they do go out and find a new head coach in the offseason, is that they will insist that Christie is the lead assistant. Once again, the guy in charge won't have the chance to choose his staff in full.

    Is It Time To Turn Over The Reins To Doug Christie?

    I never believed that story. I think most of us understood that Pete was on his way out and Vlade would take over the job

    The OAO thread about Grant Napear's podcast

    Is this surprising? He doesn't work for the Kings organization anymore. Do you think Mark Jones or Katie Christensen are going to be critical of the owner and management? Not likely to happen, unless they move on somewhere else
