    Jabari Parker

    Parker opting out would be ideal, salary cap wise. Seeing that he only got the $6.5 million deal last summer, I don't see him raising his stock after being injury prone with Atlanta and then not playing at all for the Kings. One dimensional bigs has been getting a lot of vet minimum deals...

    Jabari Parker

    I think the biggest question regarding Jabari Parker is, will he exercise his $6.5 million player option for next year? The way the Kings were playing, before the season was suspended, there is probably no spot in the rotation for him next year, especially with a healthy Bagley returning next...

    Following Potential *2020* Draftees

    Baja, do you think he is big enough to eventually fill out and become a full time Small Forward in the NBA? He’s 6’6”, but has a nice 6’10” wingspan.

    Following Potential *2020* Draftees

    The Kings will be looking at a #10-15 draft spot this year. A potential steal in the mid first round could be Aaron Nesmith from Vanderbilt, who is a 6'6", 213 lbs forward with a 6'10" wingspan. He is a nice looking scoring SF/SG that has flown under the radar, because he suffered a season...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    If the NBA cancels the rest of the regular season, they will lose a ton on their total income for the year. That in turn will also cause the Salary Cap for next year to decrease significantly from projections. Next years salary cap may be a lower than this year. Teams that thought they would...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    There is one bright spot of the season being suspended. If the rest of the regular season games are canceled, the Kings chances of retaining Harry Giles just improved. With such a small sample size of games where HG started (17 games) and played well for us, the likelihood of a team going out...

    Coronavirus

    I would hope they have insurance policies to cover these type of losses? Similar to when the Kings had to block out fans during the large protests at the arena last year. The Kings played those games with the arena less than half full.

    What could the future (rest of this season) hold for the Kings?

    One thing is for sure. It sure is better to be ending the year, post-All Star Break "Ascending" toward a possible playoff spot, as opposed to last year where we were "Descending" away from the playoffs post-ASB. Whereever we end up this season (in or out of the playoffs), we should have...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    I'm not too worried anyone is going to throw $50 million at Harry. If they do, I would have nothing against Giles for taking it. But, the likely contract offers HG will receive will not be anywhere close to $10-13 million/yr for multiple years. A likely offer may be something in the 1 or 2...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Another example of NBA teams shying away from giving players with a long history of knee injuries a big long term contract is Nerlens Noel. Very much like Giles, was projected to be the #1 overall pick in high school. With the ACL injury in college and subsequent knee related maladies, he...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Harry Giles will be the priority Center to re-sign this summer. Len will be the saftey net, if Giles walks.

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Good point. Fit maybe most important for HG going into next season. He knows he has a solid place in the rotation with Luke. If he goes to Charlotte or anywhere else, he is going to be fighting for a spot in the rotation again. I would dare say that his next contract (after the 2021 or 2022...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    This may be the Kings angle also. They are the only ones who have seen Giles MRI's and maybe they are gambling that no one will give Giles a big money, long term contract (i.e. 3 or more years) after they take a look at his physical and MRI tests. A team may give HG a nice contract offer and...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Really hoping Richaun Holmes makes it back on the court soon. The sooner Holmes can return to the starting lineup, the sooner we can start to hide Harry, by having him come off the bench.

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    That would be a lose (lose HG) / win (new GM). ;)

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    I sure hope you are right. If Giles leaves this summer, I think that will cost Vlade his job.

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Let's actually hope he doesn't let it fly, for the rest of this year at least! ;)

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Something that may hold back teams from offering Harry a big contract this summer, besides his injury history, is his lack of a 3 point shot thus far. The bigmen Free Agents that are in high demand these days are the ones that can stretch the floor. Although I think HG can develop the 3 point...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    Hopefully Richaun Holmes makes his way back soon and reclaims the starting center spot. It would help hide Harry from potential suitors for the rest of the year, if Richaun starts and finishes games like he was before his injury. If Harry comes off the bench, the less likely some team falls in...

    Kent Bazemore

    I sure hope the FO doesn’t make the same mistake they did when they moved Iman Shumpert last year. The Kings need to re-sign Bazemore to a solid vet contract this summer.
