Free Agent Options: Wing Edition

SBN (Babygiraffe) — With Rudy Gay gone, the Kings need a new starting Small Forward. Small forward is the biggest need for Sacramento walking into the offseason. The Kings may not have a small forward on their roster right now as Justin Jackson may end up playing more of a SG/SF combo rather than a fulltime wing.

NBA Trade Rumors: The Kings Should be Pursuing Kristaps Porzingis

SBN (Babygiraffe) — The Latvian Unicorn may be on the trade block. In a shocking, and frankly unsurprisingly foolish manuever, Phil Jackson has made his young star, Kristaps Porzingis , available in trade talks.

Could Frank Ntilikina be in play for the 10th pick?

SBN (Greg) — The Kings have scouted the Strasbourg point guard extensively. When the Sacramento Kings expected to be picking 8th and 10th, international point guard Frank Ntilikina was a common pick for the Kings in mock drafts. After jumping to 5th thanks to the lottery and pick swaps, most mocks have Ntilikina off the board before the Kings pick at 10. A lot can change between now and the actual...

The 5th pick has a mixed history

SBN (Greg) — The 5th pick has yielded Hall of Famers and total busts Now that we know the Sacramento Kings will have the 5th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft , it’s worth taking a look at what that draft position has yielded historically. I’ll be honest, it’s a mixed bag. There are some first-ballot Hall of Famers, and there are some massive busts. Year Player Drafted By 1980 James Ray...

Post-Lottery Mock Draft Roundup

SBN (Tony Xypteras) — Bless you, ping-pong ball gods.

Lessons to be learned from other recent rebuilds

SBN (Babygiraffe) — Examining other post-star journeys.

The MailSac: Anxious about the Draft

SBN (Aykis16) — As we take readers’ questions, everyone seems to be focused on the upcoming draft. Yesterday, you asked a bunch of questions. Today, I try my best to answer them.

The Yetisburg Address: 2016-17 Year End

SBN (Aykis16) — The tale of two different seasons. What a season it was.

The High Post It’s weird to feel more optimistic about this team after seeing them go 8-17 after a huge...

Kings Fandom: An Existential Dilemma

SBN (adambeddawi) — In light of the Kings’ current standing, it might be important to reassess what it means to be a fan of this team.
