Sacramento Kings

  1. Kings’ coach Malone calls out DeMarcus Cousins’ post defense

    Nov 7, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The evolution of DeMarcus Cousins and Sacramento Kings leader is still ongoing. It’s the same old situation with him — video tape cleared him of a flagrant foul call and led to a suspension for Atlanta’s Dennis Schroeder for hitting Cousins in the groin; but he was having a bad game before and lost his…

  2. Hawks rookie Dennis Schroder suspended one game for punch to the groin of DeMarcus Cousins (VIDEO)

    Hawks rookie Dennis Schroder has been suspended one game for “striking DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings in the groin,” the league announced on Thursday. The suspension is warranted, of course, but the most incredible part of the play was the fact that the referees didn’t feel the need to whistle Schroder for the foul.…

  3. DeMarcus Cousins benched at end of game, is ticked about “low blow” from Dennis Schroder

    Nov 6, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    It has long been the book on DeMarcus Cousins — you can get under his skin, cause him to lose focus and rather than being a dominant force he becomes a detriment to his team. Exactly how it went down Tuesday night is up to interpretation but one basic fact is not — new coach…

  4. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  6. DeMarcus Cousins described Maloof-era Kings as “an AAU team.”

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Wednesday night’s Sacramento Kings home opener wasn’t your standard home opener — it was a celebration of a team and the community that came together and fought to keep them. It was a celebration of all things Sacramento and the new owners there, Vivek Randive and his team. The game was broadcast locally (without commercials)…

  7. Report: Kings won’t offer contract extension to Greivis Vasquez before Thursday’s deadline

    Oct 31, 2013, 9:46 PM EDT

    Darrell Arthur, Greivis Vasquez

    There are a few players still eligible to have their rookie contracts extended by Thursday’s deadline of midnight Eastern time. Gordon Hayward and Eric Bledsoe are perhaps the biggest names still waiting, and it remains unclear if either player will get deals done with their respective teams before the deadline passes. Greivis Vasquez may not…

  8. 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…

  9. DeMarcus Cousins was in beast mode, dropped 30 and 14 in opener (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:28 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Nate Robinson

    DeMarcus Cousins got his max extension, and while some questioned the move the questions were not about talent — he can be the best center in the league in five years (or less) if he wants it. Wednesday night he showed that off against the Nuggets, dropping 30 points and pulling down 14 rebounds on…

  10. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  11. Ty Lawson will play for Nuggets in opener at Kings

    Oct 30, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Denver is going to be able to throw one of the best point guard combinations in the NBA at the Sacramento Kings opening night. Ty Lawson was a game-time call due to a groin strain but coach Brian Shaw said at shootaround that Lawson would be good to go Wednesday, reports Chris Dempsey of the…

  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. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  14. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New Orleans Pelicans

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Last season: New Orleans final season as the Hornets wasn’t pretty. Eric Gordon was out much of the year, Anthony Davis showed promise but looked like a rookie at times, Austin Rivers looked like a mistake, they blew a 25-point lead to the Lakers, and they ended the season with 27 wins without even a…

  15. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas with Harlem Globetrotters bucket (VIDEO)

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Isaiah Thomas, Stephen Curry

    When you talk about guys worth the entertainment dollar in the NBA, you need to mention Kings’ point guard Isaiah Thomas. The guy just makes plays. Like this one from late in the Kings’ 91-90 preseason win over the Warriors Wednesday. He’s isolated and tries to drive right to create a little space, collides with the…

  16. Kevin Love brags about winning “the ‘White Guy’ award”

    Oct 22, 2013, 6:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The NBA’s annual GM survey, analyzed by Kurt earlier today, contained few surprises. Who will win the championship? The Heat, as usual. Who will win MVP? LeBron James, obviously. Who is the best center? Dwight Howard, of course. Who’s the best coach in the NBA? Gregg Popovich, surely. Which player makes the most of limited…

  17. PBT Extra: Pacific Division Preview

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    The Pacific Division is fascinating this season. It has a genuine contender (Clippers, I’m higher on them than most), a team trying to get to that level (Warriors), a team that thinks it is better than it is (Lakers), a rebuilding team with one key piece (Kings) and a team all in for the lottery…

  18. Damian Lillard drops 23 on Kings in second half (VIDEO)

    Oct 21, 2013, 9:56 AM EDT

    Kings Trail Blazers Basketball

    Damian Lillard came out of the locker room at halftime Sunday night and decided “I’m going to own this preseason game.” He then proceeded to drop 16 points on Sacramento in the third quarter (14 of those in a spurt that lasted about four minutes), and had 23 of his 28 in the second half…

  19. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Sacramento Kings

    Oct 17, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    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…

  20. Evan Turner isn’t worrying about contract extension he won’t get

    Oct 15, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    Evan Turner is not going to get an extension to his rookie contract, and frankly he shouldn’t (unless he’s willing to take a very small number). He hasn’t shown to be an effective or efficient scorer at the NBA level. He’s an NBA bench guy because he rebounds, passes and generally plays solid ball, but…

  21. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Last season: The Warriors ultimately overachieved when all was said and done in 2013, getting to the second round of the playoffs and taking the eventual Western Conference champion Spurs to six games before their season was ended. For a sixth seed entering the playoffs with just 47 wins and having to go through the…

  22. Sacramento’s Carl Landry out 3-4 months following hip surgery

    Oct 14, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    Carl Landry

    This is a blow to Sacramento — they went out and got Carl Landry this summer (along with Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Greivis Vasquez) to provide some veteran stabilization behind their young core. Now Landry is going to be out three to four months following surgery on a hip flexor, the team announced…

  23. Quote of the Day: DeMarcus Cousins says this new Kings offense is his first

    Oct 8, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    “Actually this is my first one.” —Kings center DeMarcus Cousins when asked about the new offense of coach Mike Malone, as tweeted by Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. John Calipari can be offended, but the Kings can’t. In his three seasons up to this point with the team Cousins has dealt with whatever it was…

  24. Report: Longtime NBA employee calls 2012-13 Bucks’ locker room worst he’d ever seen

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Bucks have had one of the NBA’s busiest offseasons. They traded Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ish Smith, waived Drew Gooden and Gustavo Ayon, let Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Mike Dunleavy Jr. walk in free agency and signed-and-traded Brandon Jennings and J.J. Redick. That’s most of the roster turned over, yet it’s…

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

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    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…
