    California Classic Game 2 Kings versus Heat 7/2/19

    I just can’t get into summer league ball if it doesn’t involve higher profile draft picks. I love to see how their games immediately start to translate, but the rest of this is just....blah.

    Trevor Ariza 2 years $25 mil

    I would also question what difference it really makes at this point if we did overpay a little for Ariza (which I’m not sure we really did by much). It’s apparently only a partial guarantee for year two and seems like we filled out the rest of the roster just fine this offseason. Not sure who...

    Kings sign Richaun Holmes 2/10

    I was thinking the same thing. Not sure I understand why he would choose a team where he’s not even guaranteed to be the first or second big off the bench. The contract seems relatively normal, so doesn’t seem like we blew him away with money.

    Kings sign Richaun Holmes 2/10

    Outstanding. Really great pickup for end of bench.

    Kings extend QO to Willie Cauley-Stein

    He would do great there. Probably just fill into that McGee role from a couple years ago....assuming he can live with that.

    Kings sign Cory Joseph

    A vet that knows his role. Sort of a George Hill signing except no illusion of anything other than solid bench contributor logging about 15 to 20 min a game.

    Kings sign Cory Joseph

    Now we just need to see what Walton does with it. I keep catching myself thinking about how Joeger rotations will play out. Curious how the Dedmond/Barnes/Ariza/Belli combinations are used. I suspect Belli probably ends up a little bit on the outside looking in with Barnes shifting over to the 4...

    Kings extend QO to Willie Cauley-Stein

    I think he’ll get a nice contract somewhere, and will, for the rest of his career, be the player we have seen the last couple years. Looks good from afar to the rest of the league, but the team that grabs him will be just as frustrated as we have been. If he ever commits to being a serious...

    Is Willie Cauley-Stein still an option at center for Sacramento Kings?

    What he should get is different than what he will get. Lot of teams with cap space, desperately to make something happen.

    Davis traded to the Lakers

    LaBron turns 35 this December. This will clearly put them in conversation as contenders for next season, but....if the lakers front office doesn’t get their act together and reduce the bumbling turmoil, this is going to be disastrous for them for the next decade. Yes, they will always feel like...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Hey, a little dirt rub in your face can be a good thing. At least you won’t be swimmin’ with the fishes. Badabing!

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Just because you’re now interested in their opinions doesn’t mean Laker fans have all of a sudden grown a brain. They are still the same clueless, obnoxious, low IQ fan base they have always been. I would take any opinion on that site with a massive grain of salt.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Are you referring to the real Luke Walton or the fictional “Luke Walton”? I’m in for a looong off season if I’m not allowed to salivate just a little bit over him. :(

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Debating ApolloDaGod is pointless. He’s just looking for a reaction at this point. His response to your post will be something about how Walton is the trashiest of trash coaches who lucked into every win he had and was responsible for ending LBJ’s playoff streak.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I don’t personally remember a lot of people laughing at Walton around here. The usual laker hate yes.....but whatever.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Wow. That’s insightful.

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    I know he’s around the team quite a bit, but I really don’t put much stock in anything Ham says.

    Walton fired by Lakers; Kings make offer (merged)

    I agree. While I don’t think Joeger necessary “lost” the locker room....there certainly seemed to be a disconnect with things in the second half. It is possible for the people in this thread who say Joeger is a better coach than Luke (or other potential hires) to be correct but it still be the...
