The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

Normally posting video of one player dropping another with a crossover if it only leads to a missed shot is a bit gauche, but in this case, it’s worth making the exception. Tony Wroten seems to mystify Kings rookie Ray McCallum here, and McCallum trips over himself trying to keep up. Again, Wroten should have…

Last season: Another mired below mediocre for a Kings team that has been just awful for the past seven years. Sacramento finished with just 28 wins, good for 13th out of 15 teams in the West. The team was 29th out of 30 in defensive efficiency (only the Bobcats were worse), DeMarcus Cousins remained out…

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…

On Oct. 30 when you tune in — or at least the people in Sacramento tune in — to watch the Kings season opener as they host the Denver Nuggets, there will be no commercials during the broadcast. You read that right, no commercials. Zero. The time that would normally be filled with a Blake…

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).…

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.…

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…

LAS VEGAS — As we enter the tournament phase of Summer League, it is pretty much the halfway point, which seems a good time to take stock of some of the player evaluation and development that is really the focus out in Las Vegas. And when you talk player evaluation, you should always try to…

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…
