    The Queta-Noel Era is Over

    All true. Was just wondering since if we made him an offer and he declined, he took a risk. Possible his agent was confident that a similar or better deal would be available elsewhere. In any case, doesn't matter now, and all this is conjecture anyways. Best wishes Neemias. That said, hope you...

    The Queta-Noel Era is Over

    Hmm. He signed a 2-way with Boston? Wonder if we offered that to him.

    Jordi Fernández, Canada head coach

    Well, he is a month younger than Sasha. You can never have too many wings, right? :-)

    [KINGS] Comments that don't warrant their own thread (Redux)

    Was the third language I learned in middle school. Many kids in India learn two and even three languages from elementary school. I learned two, and was required to study a third language in middle school. Sanskrit was the one I chose, since my mother tongue is derived from it, making it easier...

    [KINGS] Comments that don't warrant their own thread (Redux)

    Impressive. I should have paid more attention in my Sanskrit classes in middle school :-) That said, my original point was that the pronunciations can differ very drastically from region to region. I guess that's true everywhere, but more so in India, where different regions have completely...

    [KINGS] Comments that don't warrant their own thread (Redux)

    Well India is a big country with lots of languages. Our Vivek and the other Vivek are from different parts of India and speak completely different languages, not to talk of different pronunciations. The word itself has Sanskrit origins, but will be spoken differently in different parts. Bottom...

    SKAL BACK

    Well, we have 2 spots available. If Monte decides to go with a full roster, it could be "may the best two backup centers win".

    SKAL BACK

    Largely agree, but there's always hope :-) FWIW, Whiteside had achieved less in the NBA than Skal did, and had bounced around in China and Lebanon before joining Miami at age 25 and becoming an All-Star. Not saying that Skal can have a similar jump (of course, Hassan's case is quite rare)...

    SKAL BACK

    Wow! All the tools are there; size, athleticism, smooth jumper, soft touch, outside shot, rebounding, shot blocking. I know that everyone looks good in highlight reels, but per the video, he's not a one trick pony. Hope, for his sake and ours, that he can put it all together.

    SKAL BACK

    Sorry, don't know. Performance was impressive, but yes, needs to do with some consistency to stick in the league.

    SKAL BACK

    Pretty impressive. If he can give even a fraction of this with consistency, he'll have huge value in the league.

    SKAL BACK

    Thinking from Skal's perspective, he's just trying to get/stay in the league. Given his size, playing for a storied program, and selection in the first round, he might have been hoping for a long and successful career. While he's made more money than most of us over a lifetime, it's puny by NBA...

    DOMAS BACK!!!

    As much as I would like that to happen, I doubt it. Not that I don't expect Keegan to be significantly better in his second year, but I don't expect him to get adequate opportunities for it. Not only is he 3rd in the pecking order, we just signed another potential high scorer to play a position...

    Sasha signed!!!

    Malik Monk may have something to say about that.

    DOMAS BACK!!!

    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/38067889/jaylen-brown-celtics-agree-record-5-year-304m-supermax-extension Do folks still think Domas' extension was overly rich?

    We Need To Talk About Queta

    Don't want to turn it into a HW thread, but some of the stories posted here when he had a second stint with us were unbelievable (and yes funny). Recall one about him buying a luxury vehicle before he started making real money, and having a 50K assault rifle stolen (ok, that one is more scary...

    Kings extend QOs to Queta and Ellis

    Oh I agree. Was just curious. That said, I think HndsmCelt's post helped me understand a bit better, as also Keon's situation. The QO is likely for a 2-way, and is probably minimal in value. I will hate to see him put up big numbers for some other team, but I don't see much of a future for him...

    Kings extend QOs to Queta and Ellis

    From a purely financial perspective, how does the salary in a 2-way contract work if he accepts the QO? I don't know the value of the QO, but the 2-way contract value is quite low https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-way_contract#Basketball If the QO is higher, and he gets signed to a 2-way, what...
