    Article on Mikal Bridges by Cole Zwicker:

    I'm a big fan of Zwicker's articles and podcasts. No one is right all the time, but he's spot on more than often than not. When he writes an in-depth article, he goes into a lot of detail in his breakdown. Therefore, the article is fairly long, so if you not into a long read, then I suggest you...

    Harry Giles article: By, Harry Giles

    Nice informative article from Giles prospective. I think most will like his honesty, and his ability to be introspective. He comes across as a very intelligent and dedicated young man. Enjoy! https://www.theplayerstribune.com/harry-giles-sacramento-kings/

    Scouting: Insightful article.

    Not sure this is the right forum for this, but every year people on this forum question how much effort is put into scouting players. Gee, I wonder if Vlade ever saw this player play? Gee, if we didn't bring them in for a workout, do we really know anything about them? This article not only...

    How I would distribute minutes:

    Been giving this a lot of thought, and this is all based on what I know about the players now. That could all change during the preseason. But for now, this is how I would distribute the minutes. Bear in mind this is just an average and doesn't take into account the possibility of injuries, or...

    Early because I'm bored, my 2018 mock draft:

    Whereas nothing is happening right now, I thought I'd post my thoughtless, based on no games of relevance 2018 mock draft. I feel fairly confident in the who the top five are likely to be, but as always, there will be someone who will move up into that group. This draft is starting to look like...

    Willie Cauley-Stein:

    There's been a little discussion about Willie, particularly of late, in regards to throwing him in as filler in a trade. Something I'm against at this moment in time. Especially since I feel Willie is on the verge of a breakout, and because I think you have to give big men three to four years to...

    Semi Ojeleye:

    Semi Ojeleye: SF/PF - 6'7" in shoes - 241 lbs - 8'6" standing reach - 40.5" max vertical. No, I'm not suggesting we draft Semi with either of our 1st round picks. However, he's being projected as a mid to early 2nd round pick, and I think the Kings should take a long look at him if he's still...

    Monte Morris:

    Since the Kings have now interviewed Morris twice, I figured I'd post a little info on him. Morris is a likely 2nd round pick, and that's despite being one of the most successful PG's in college over the last four years. He broke almost every PG record at Iowa St. So why is he ranked so low...

    Dennis Smith Jr.:

    In contrast to Fox, Smith is more likely to be available when we pick at 8. Of course one never knows how he'll impress in his workouts. He could move back up the boards. Since I've already stated my reservations about Smith in other threads, I won't go over them again. Like Fox, Smith is a...

    De'Aaron Fox:

    Although it's doubtful that the Kings will have a chance to draft Fox unless they make some sort of draft day trade, I thought it would be a good idea to do a just in case thread. I like Fox quite a bit, and I will admit that I'm a little biased toward Kentucky players. In general, their top...

    Jonathan Isaac:

    Isaac is another one of my favorite players. It's my belief that we've only seen the tip of the iceberg with Isaac, because of how he was used at Florida St. When you watch the video I'm posting, you'll think wow, why did this kid only average 12 points a game with that skill set. Well, because...

    Jawun Evans:

    I really like Evans, and he's projected to go somewhere between mid first and the bottom of the first round. I would love the Kings to hedge their bets at the PG position even if they draft a PG at 8 or 10. Portland has three 1st round picks, the 15th, 20th, and 26th. Portland is also, like the...

    Frank Ntilikina:

    Since there's a high possibility that Ntilikina will be available when the Kings pick, I thought I'd post as much info as I could find on him. If you watch enough film of him, you come to realize that no, he's not as quick as Fox or Smith, but he's not slow either. He's a good...

    How will Willie be used this season:

    I haven't seen this posted anywhere yet, so if has, then pull this thread down. There has been some discussion on the forum about Willie's summer league performance, and how many minutes he get, along with how will he be played. Well here is an article with videos that does a good job of...

    Speculation on the future, and past comparisons:

    Long title! Don't really care for long titles, but what the hey, I had to describe the content of the post. There has been a lot of speculation on how good, or bad the Kings will be this year, and how that might affect Cousins future with the team. Of course I don't have a crystal ball, so what...

    Deuce and Morgan interview Scot Pollard

    Don't know if this deserves it's own thread or not, but Scott was on an internet broadcast and had some interesting things to say about the 01/02 team and it's chemistry, Cousins, Surviver, the AAU, and Rick Adelman. It this has been posted already, then a mod can take it down.

    The forgotten King, Arturas Gudaitis:

    Seemingly forgotten in our trade with Philly, was the acquisition of two European players, one of which was considered a top player until he suffered an injury two years ago. Lest we forget, here's a quote from then. On July 10, 2015, the Sacramento Kings acquired Gudaitis and Luka Mitrović...
