The struggling Sacramento Kings have an idea of what they need to do.
Right now, Tyreke Evans is the point guard for the Sacramento Kings. And he’s not a bad one. Certainly a score-first guy but someone averaging 5.2 assists per game, about 18.9 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor come from one of his assists.
But Evans is really a two guard, he’s playing the point out of necessity in Sacramento. And as can happen with a shoot-first point guard, they have become a predictable team heavily reliant on isolation plays. Which is why the Kings are looking to trade for a real point guard.
They have called about Aaron Brooks in Houston and Jeff Teague in Atlanta, according to the Sacramento Bee. They got nowhere with these calls. For now.
But at some time this season point guard is going to become available. And look for the Kings to be in the mix to get him.
