  1. Report: Kings offer Marcus Thornton or Jimmer Fredette for Andre Miller

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:34 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    We already knew a couple parts of the equation. First and foremost, we knew the Denver Nuggets have been trying to trade Andre Miller, and wanting that to happen sooner rather than later. We also knew the Kings have been very aggressive in trying to land Miller. They are aggressive on the trade market in…

  3. Report: Kings “aggressively” looking to trade veterans to accelerate rebuild

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:11 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    While most teams are feeling out deals and moving patiently with their big trade chips to see how the market shakes out — see the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets as examples 1A and 1B — the new regime in Sacramento is feeling a little more impatient. They have veterans available and they are looking…

  4. Report: Kings decline option on Jimmer Fredette, will be free agent next summer

    Oct 31, 2013, 5:56 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Jimmer Fredette still has a small but dedicated group of believers that “Jimmermania” still exists, if he just would get a chance. The Sacramento Kings are apparently not in that group — they are not going to pick up the 2014-15 $3.1 million option, reports Sam Amick of the USA Today. That means next summer…

  5. Watch Chris Mullin beat Kings at three-point shooting (VIDEO)

    Chris Mullin

    The Sacramento Kings have taken their training camp to UC Santa Barbara, a university where you have to be pretty smart to get in but nobody really goes there for the academics. Interesting motif to choose for training camp, but there you have it. After practice Thursday, some UCSB students were let in and entertained…

  6. Isaiah Thomas hopes the starting point guard spot in Sacramento is ‘up for competition’

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:49 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Isaiah Thomas started 62 games at point guard for the Kings last season, but with an average of just 4.6 assists in 26.9 minutes per game, he’s someone who has looked to score first rather than distribute to others. With the Kings making DeMarcus Cousins the face of the franchise, you can bet that they’ll…

  7. Mike Malone already bringing the energy as Kings head coach

    Cody Zeller, Michael Malone

    Mike Malone has been one of the most well-respected assistant coaches for quite awhile, but he’s moving one seat over this year as head coach of the Sacramento Kings. According to an interview he did with the Sacramento Bee’s Ailene Voisin, it sounds like the new head coach will bring a much-needed energetic approach to…

  8. Cavaliers have no interest in trading for Jimmer Fredette

    Aug 24, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    jimmer-kings

    There were some rumors floating around not that long ago that the Sacramento Kings were shopping Jimmer Fredette, and that the Cavaliers might have been interested. But Cleveland is seemingly stocked at the guard positions, and while Fredette remains a decent option that may be expendable in Sacramento, Cleveland isn’t a team that would be…

  9. Kings’ Vasquez will sit out FIBA Americas tournament

    Aug 22, 2013, 2:25 PM EST

    Chris Paul, Greivis Vasquez, Blake Griffin

    Greivis Vasquez has put club (and paychecks) before country, which should go over very well in Sacramento. The likely Kings starting point guard has decided not to play for his native Venezuela in the upcoming FIBA Americas tournament, instead focusing on recovering from off-season surgery to help the Kings next season, reports liderendeportes.com (via Hoopshype).…

  10. Kings still listening to Jimmer Fredette trade offers

    Aug 20, 2013, 11:21 AM EST

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette is not going to get a lot of court time in Sacramento this season. Fredette insists he is a point guard but he is at best third in that rotation behind Greivis Vasquez and Isaiah Thomas, plus rookie Ray McCallum looked good in Summer League and could land some minutes at the one.…

  11. Sacramento Kings sign Ray McCallum to three-year contract

    Jul 19, 2013, 11:26 AM EST

    Kings Mavericks Basketball

    Ray McCallum has impressed at Summer League. The No. 36 pick of the Kings is averaging 12.8 points a game, he can get to the rim and finish there (a rarity in Summer League), has looked like a floor general and had one big 23-point game. He’s had some rougher outings and is shooting just…

  12. Ray McCallum’s play could leave Sacramento with tough choices

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:35 AM EST

    Kings Mavericks Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — The Sacramento Kings are set at the point guard spot. They traded for Greivis Vasquez to become the pass-first point guard that gets DeMarcus Cousins and Ben McLemore going. Behind him off the bench they can bring in score-first Isaiah Thomas to spark the second unit. That pair makes for a good…

  13. Report: Brandon Jennings for Jeff Teague? It’s one scenario being discussed.

    Jul 8, 2013, 10:39 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    The most likely scenario out there has Monta Ellis landing in Atlanta next season; they are the clear and away frontrunners for his services. Ellis with the ball, Kyle Korver as the sharpshooter on the wing, Paul Millsap and Al Horford on the front line… that’s a solid playoff team in the East (albeit one…

  14. Draft rumor roundup: Can Cleveland find a taker for the No. 1 pick?

    Jarnell Stokes, Willie Cauley-Stein, Nerlens Noel

    Here is a quick roundup of some NBA Draft rumors floating around Tuesday morning: • The Cleveland Cavaliers are still shopping the No. 1 pick around and trying to trade out of that spot. While other names come up (because there is no dominant player in this draft) expect Nerlens Noel to be the No.…

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one.

    Pau Gasol, Francisco Garcia

    What were people talking about at Staples Center Sunday night? Phil Jackson. Is he coming to the Lakers in the next 24 hours? Does he really want the job? How does he implement the triangle with Steve Nash and no training camp? You know the fans want him because midway through the second quarter they…

  21. First NBA flopping warnings go to J.J. Barea, Donald Sloan

    Nov 5, 2012, 6:12 PM EST

    Barea Hinrich

    Congratulations J.J. Barea and Donald Sloan, you have gotten the historic first warnings from the NBA for flopping. The league announced Monday that Minnesota’s Barea and Cleveland’s Sloan got warnings — there are no fines until their second offense (and then it is just $5,000 for the next offense). The goal rather is to leak…

  23. Thomas Robinson could get time at small forward for the Kings

    Oct 7, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    thomas robinson

    The Kings are apparently thinking about going with a super-big lineup. From the Sacramento Bee: Don’t rule out Thomas Robinson seeing time at small forward during the preseason. During one 5-on-5 session, Robinson was the small forward with Chuck Hayes and DeMarcus Cousins the other frontcourt players. Jimmer Fredette and Marcus Thornton were the other…

  24. Jimmer Fredette says he is mentally ready for NBA game now

    Sep 20, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    Jimmer Fredette remains much more a cultural sensation than one on the NBA court. He’s still the pride of Glens Falls, N.Y., where he was a high school star. He is still revered like few others in Utah, a positive public model for many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly…

  25. The Inbounds: Can Keith Smart save the Kings’ soul?

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    My favorite B-movie of all time is “Killer Clowns from Outer Space.” It is as terrible and ridiculous as the title suggests, an outright cavalcade of campy horror bathed in absurdist light. To try and watch it is to recognize that sometimes, there are things which should not be made, and yet you will watch…
