    Following Potential *2020* Draftees

    I'll be honest, to give an opinion about any of these players future is nonsense right now. Lewis is an example. Based on just two games, I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole. But I know he's better than that, so I'll withhold judgement for about 20 games. Not sure why anyone wouldn't like...

    I agree on Avdija and will certainly have him on my must watch list. I'll likely be concentrating on players I think will go in the middle of the first rd or below. I still have faith that this team will reverse course and either make the playoffs, or just miss. I like what I see from Wiseman...

    What say you to @Carmichael Dave?

    Where the hell have you been hiding? Anyway, I think Fox is still trying to find his way, but I agree with you, he needs to go into attack mode and lead the team. By the way, I don't remember Westbrook winning any championships. As to who has the toughness on the team, I agree on Holmes and...

    [Game] Kings v. Blazers 10/25/19 7PM PT/10PM ET

    Well James has the height to play some SF, but Jeffries, who by the way I really like, and wanted the Kings to take in the 2nd rd, is mostly a SG, even though he does have a huge wingspan. One thing both those guys would bring is solid defense. Although our perimeter defense has been much...

    [Game] Kings v. Blazers 10/25/19 7PM PT/10PM ET

    Not sure what your referring to in the off-season. Most people thought Vlade's signings were good one's, at least on paper. Our pre-season games were for the most part entertaining and our play looked pretty good for pre-season. Not sure I can think of anything that happened that would even...

    [Game] Kings v. Blazers 10/25/19 7PM PT/10PM ET

    My concern is that two of the players we signed in free agency haven't played as advertised. Especially Ariza, who looks like his feet are in concrete. I might be able to live with that if his shot was falling, but it's not even close. As for Dedmon, whether you liked Willie or not, he was...

    [Game] Kings v. Blazers 10/25/19 7PM PT/10PM ET

    You should change your moniker to Knee jerk! This may be one of the most ridiculous posts I've ever read in my time on the forum. After two games we should just fire everyone. Unbelievable!

    Bogdanovic reportedly unhappy as a bench player

    I wasn't particularly pleased with how Bogi played in the game either, but you need to understand, he doesn't decide whether he plays like a PG or SG, the coach does. Do you think he was a cutter and an off the ball player in Europe, and then just decided to go away from everything that made him...

    Kings sign DaQuan Jeffries, promote Wenyen to full NBA contract

    Gabriel brings defense, hustle, rebounding, and the ability to play both the PF and SF positions. His 3pt shot has improved and if he can polish it off, he could become a solid 3 and D player.

    Kenny Thomas vs Jason Thompson

    I was a fan of JT in college, and thought he had a lot of upside. He was a late bloomer who shot up from 6'4" to 6'11" in one offseason at Rider. Unfortunately, he never reached that potential. To be fair to JT, he happened to be on the kings when the team had a revolving door for coaches and...

    Kings and Buddy agree on a deal

    Congrats to the Kings for getting this done. It appears that everyone walks away happy. It's also a good look around the league for future freeagents. Well done!

    They should be pretty good. If Simmons can ever develop a 3 pt shot, then look out. Also, a lot depends on Embiid staying healthy.

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    Well, the fact is that if you want to have a contender, it's going to cost you. It's not really about spending that amount of money. It's about getting the results you want for that amount of money. As someone said, Vlade has put his eggs in this basket, so he has to play it out and see. Win a...

    Following 2019 draftees!!!

    He was the best defensive player in college, so it's not a surprise. The question on him was his offense. Don't quote me, but I think he set a steals record last year at Washington.

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    The most the Kings can offer Bogi right now, because of his original contract is the 51.4 mil for 4 years, and so they made that offer. I think they knew that Bogi is worth more than that, but decided to make a good faith offer. They knew going in that he wouldn't accept that offer and Bogi...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    Yeah, I think you've hit the nail on the head. The Kings are limited in how much they can pay Bogi with an extension right now, but if they let it go to the end of the year, making him a restricted freeagent, then they can either match any offer, or make a better offer. So yeah, things could...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    Personally I was thinking four years at 100 mil, but were close and I'd be happy with either deal.

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    Actually Jason Jones wrote in The Athletic that Buddy was willing to take less than the max, but hoped the Kings didn't make an offer that was insulting. I'm not sure where good ends and insulting begins, but I sure the Kings and Buddy's agent have been talking. What I like about Buddy is that...
