    [Shams] The Sacramento Kings are hiring Houston Rockets assistant GM Monte McNair as new head of basketball operations, sources tell me and @sam_amick

    Yes, in a sense. A QB touches the ball on every play. The QB and Offensive line are infinitely more important than other players on the field. A dominant pitcher in baseball is still more important than Trout because the pitcher is involved in every play. Basketball.....all players on the...

    [Shams] The Sacramento Kings are hiring Houston Rockets assistant GM Monte McNair as new head of basketball operations, sources tell me and @sam_amick

    I'm not really big on analytics more than a tool in a big picture in basketball. Basketball definitely differs from baseball in that there are a lot more intangibles and variables. A baseball player batting against a pitcher or fielding a ball is an individual act. Beyond free throw shooting...

    It's not a unique model. Teams like the Bulls, Warriors, Clippers have consultants in addition to their regular front office. The issue still remains with Vivek and how he utilizes the advisor. Will he use it to help make the team better, or as a sword of damoclese over McNairs head.

    [The Athletic] Kings request permission to interview candidates for head of basketball operations

    Rockets 2.0 is a scary thought. It all looks good on paper, but the Rockets couldn't get over the hump. In their best shot at a championship when playing the Warriors, their 3pt shot failed them. They died by it. This year, the Lakers beat them at their own game. Lakers are a huge team and...

    [The Athletic] Kings request permission to interview candidates for head of basketball operations

    We won't know anything about McNair until we see how he handles the Buddy/Bogi situation. It will say a lot about the direction he wants to take the team.
