  1. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  2. Tuesday Night NBA Grades: We fail the entire Atlantic Division

    Nov 20, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    New York Knicks

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while you were turning in your neighbor who stole monkeys and grew marijuana…  The entire Atlantic Division. With the losses Tuesday of the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics, Atlantic Division teams have now lost 14 games in a row. As…

  3. Rumor: Kings interested in possible Derrick Williams trade

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:06 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    This is not something likely go down in the near future if it goes down at all, so just put this in your “things that could happen after Christmas or close to the deadline” file. We’ve told you before that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to trade Derrick Williams. Flip Saunders and the rest of…

  4. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  5. Sacramento and Denmark to duel for Guinness indoor sound record tonight

    Nov 15, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    nba_u_kings_fans_576

    It’s not every day that an NBA basketball game becomes the site of Guinness World Record testing, and as you might have heard Sacramento Kings fans are wasting no time putting their grassroots organizations to work by attempting to break the indoor sound record of 106.6 dBA previously set by the fans of the Bucks…

  6. Warriors’ Toney Douglas has stress reaction in tibia, out two weeks minimum

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas

    While Golden State has looked good this season — 5-3 so far after a beat down of Detroit Tuesday — their bench has been not been the source of strength it was last season (they miss Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry so far). Now the bench just got a little weaker. Backup point guard Toney…

  7. 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…

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

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Dennis Schroder, Rudy Gay, Amir Johnson

    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.…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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)…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
