    The Suns were supposed to be in rebuilding mode, but surprised everyone by being a part of the playoff picture all season long. But a recent slide has the team in real danger of missing the postseason, which would now come as a huge disappointment.

  2. No buyout for Jason Terry, but he won’t join Kings this season

    Feb 22, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Jason Terry smiles as he is introduced to the media during a news conference in Brooklyn

    Jason Terry was traded to the Kings as part of the deadline day deal that also saw the Nets send Reggie Evans to Sacramento in exchange for Marcus Thornton. A veteran like Terry doesn’t exactly fit into the rebuilding Kings’ plans, and his inclusion in the package for Thornton was strictly a salary cap-related issue.…

  3. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  4. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  5. Report: Nets agreed to deal to get Marcus Thornton from Kings; Nets near adding Hill from Lakers

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Sacramento Kings

    We passed along the report this trade was being discussed yesterday. Apparently it’s about to be much more than discussed, and with that the Nets continue to laugh at the NBA’s new, stiffer luxury tax. The Nets and Kings have agreed in principle to a trade that would send Marcus Thornton to the Nets in…

  6. Report: Kings, Nets talking Marcus Thornton for Jason Terry, Reggie Evans

    Feb 18, 2014, 4:48 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    The new Sacramento Kings ownership and front office is aggressive. The Brooklyn Nets remain looking for players that can help them win now. Which leads to this interesting trade rumor courtesy Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: The Sacramento Kings are engaged in discussions to send guard Marcus Thornton to the Brooklyn Nets for guard Jason…

  7. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

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

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:34 PM EDT

    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…

  9. Updated Report: Boston Celtics talking Rondo trade with Kings, multiple sources deny

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 3:47 pm: It didn’t take long for multiple quality sources to shoot this idea down. Spoke w/source moments ago who said the latest Rajon Rondo rumor that he will be traded to the Sacramento #Kings, is "not happening."— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) December 17, 2013 FYI re: Rajon Rondo rumor, Celtics & Kings have…

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

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 31, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT

    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…

  12. Harrison Barnes out for first two games due to foot injury

    Oct 29, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Expectations are high in the Bay Area — their beloved Warriors are finally good, making it to the second round of the playoffs last season, then they went out and added Andre Iguodala this summer. But this is not how you want to start the season. Harrison Barnes will be out at least the first…

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

    Sep 1, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT

    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…

  14. Kings still listening to Jimmer Fredette trade offers

    Aug 20, 2013, 11:21 AM EDT

    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.…

  15. Sale of Kings means needed front office, coaching changes

    May 17, 2013, 1:07 PM EDT

    Keith Smart

    Whatever happened with the sale of the Kings, one thing was a lock — big front office changes and a coaching change were on the way. Now that the deal is done and the Kings will be staying in Sacramento, don’t expect it to be long before you see changes — Geoff Petrie and Keith…

  16. Denver wins, earns West No. 3 seed; Clippers get home court

    Apr 18, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While everybody was watching the overtime drama to see how the bottom half of the Western Conference would play out, there were a lot of questions in the middle of the conference as well: Could Denver hold on to the three seed? Could the Clippers hold off the Grizzlies and have home court in the…

  17. Hornets’ Anthony Davis out for season with MCL sprain

    Apr 11, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Marcus Thornton

    The good news is this is not serious, and when the injury happened it looked like it could have been. New Orleans’ No. 1 pick Anthony Davis will be out for the season due to a sprained MCL plus a bone bruise in his left knee, suffered in the fourth quarter Wednesday night against the…

  18. Anthony Davis tweaks knee near end of Hornets loss, apparently okay

    Apr 11, 2013, 10:48 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Marcus Thornton

    New Orleans fans were holding their breath near the end of the fourth quarter Wednesday night. With 5:45 left in the game Anthony Davis — the former No. 1 overall pick and promising rookie — tried to draw a charging foul as Marcus Thornton drove the lane. The resulting collision had Thornton falling on and…

    No one really remembers the numbers guys get in losing efforts. Those numbers usually seem hollow; they come off as not worthy of mention. Tonight, though, we honor those guys who put up big numbers in a losing effort. Because as those guys showed out and did their best to help their team win, they…
