Sacramento Kings

  1. While everyone talked Seattle, Dallas and Sacramento played a good game (that the Mavs won)

    Jan 11, 2013, 3:19 AM EDT

    kings_mavericks

    As people filed into the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, it felt like the game was secondary. All everyone was talking about was the reports that the Kings could be sold to the Chris Hansen/Steve Ballmer group out of Seattle and moved. But despite the best efforts of the Maloof family to seemingly follow the…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: Heat Checked

    Jan 11, 2013, 2:30 AM EDT

    Nicolas Batum,LeBron James

    Three games were on the menu Thursday night, and each brought their own unique flavor. If you love defense (or hate scoring), Pacers-Knicks was the game for you. With Carmelo Anthony serving his one-game suspension, the Knicks really struggled to generate offense and relied almost solely on J.R. Smith heroics most of the night. That…

  3. Report: Kings will consider offers to trade Tyrke Evans

    Jan 10, 2013, 12:54 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Tobias Harris

    Figuring out what the Sacramento Kings are going to do approaching the trade deadline is about like what was going on in any 1990s David Lynch movie (“Lost Highway,” “Inland Empire,” take your pick). It’s futile. The team is in the middle of sale talks that could move them to Seattle and whatever happens they…

  4. George Maloof’s Virginia Beach arena ploy falls apart, Seattle rumors heat up

    Jan 9, 2013, 9:10 AM EDT

    Phil, George, Gavin Maloof

    We never took the Maloofs or Virginia Beach seriously in their talks to move the Sacramento Kings to the eastern seaboard, and predictably the talks officially fell apart when Virginia Beach mayor Will Sessoms declared the deal dead for now on Tuesday. There were a million reasons that deal was a farce – a sad…

  5. Report: Grizzlies listening to offers for Zach Randolph, too

    Jan 8, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    I don’t think this is going to happen. At this time of year teams listen to all sorts of trade ideas, gauging the value of their players and seeing if one in 100 might stick and work. But while shopping Rudy Gay around the league pretty hard, they may also open to the idea of…

  6. DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t think people give him a fair chance

    Jan 8, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    John Salmons, DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins isn’t totally wrong here — we tend not to give the benefit of the doubt to people we have seen act a certain way before. That’s pretty much how Cousins sees his reputation and the response to him — people don’t give him a fair chance. He said as much to Chris Mannix…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, but it’s close

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    To be honest, you could have ranked the top three in this week’s PBT NBA Power Rankings and been fine. I’m giving the top spot to the Thunder this week because I think they’d beat the Clippers or Spurs in a seven game series right now. But not easily. 1. Thunder (26-7, Last week ranked…

  8. Tyreke Evans plans to return to Kings lineup Monday

    Jan 7, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    We have good news for Kings fans. It’s rare we get to do that lately, so we want to make sure they are paying attention: Tyreke Evans is set to return to the Kings lineup Monday night against Memphis, reports the Sacramento Bee. Evans is planning to play tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies, as long…

  9. Report: DeMarcus Cousins not on trade block. At all.

    Jan 7, 2013, 10:46 AM EDT

    Ed Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry

    Oh, how I would like to think this would put an end to the DeMarcus Cousins trade rumors. Particularly the ones out of Boston, where they seem most rampant. But alas, this has about as much chance of working out well as an Oasis reunion tour. Sam Amick of the USA Today — a guy…

  10. Pistons’ Villanueva to appeal fine for foul on Kings’ Thomas

    Jan 3, 2013, 7:56 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva doesn’t really get it. He was ejected with a Flagrant Two foul then was fined $25,000 for the foul he committed on the Kings Isaiah Thomas. Later Thomas called Villanueva a dirty player. Villanueva both denied that and told the Detroit Free Press he plans to appeal the fine. “Dirty player? Not…

  12. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  13. No surgery needed, Tyreke Evans could play next week

    Jan 2, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Tobias Harris

    Finally, some good news for Kings fans. Tyreke Evans, who has missed eight games with a sore knee, got a second opinion on said knee that concurred with the first — no surgery is needed and he could be back soon, the team announced. The second opinion on the sore left knee of Sacramento Kings…

  14. Pistons’ Villanueva fined $25,000 for foul on Kings’ Thomas

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    You kind of knew this was coming — once Charlie Villanueva was ejected for a flagrant two foul on the Kings’ Isaiah Thomas Tuesday night you had to expect a fine to follow. It did, the league announced a $25,000 fine for Villanueva on Wednesday. To not fine Villanueva would violate standard NBA procedure and…

  16. Pistons’ Villanueva ejected for hard foul on Kings’ Thomas (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 9:59 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    As fouls you get ejected for go, that is on the soft end of the scale. Just before halftime the Kings’ Isaiah Thomas drove the lane and the Piston’s Charlie Villanueva rotated over to stop him and did so with a hard foul that sent Thomas sprawling on the ground. Thomas came up angry and…

  17. Kings GM says DeMarcus Cousins not on trade block

    Klay Thomspon, DeMarcus Cousins, Andrew Bogut

    While there has been a lot of buzz about it, don’t expect to see a DeMarcus Cousins trade anytime soon. Why not? There are a few reasons. Kings GM Geoff Petrie says the key one is Cousins is not on the trade block. He was very direct about it when speaking to David Aldridge writing…

  18. NBA Power Rankings: Western Conference dominates top spots

    Dec 31, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Clippers' Griffin, Jordan, Crawford, and Paul, celebrate a three pointer by teammate Green during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Los Angeles

    We enter 2013 off a week where the two best teams in the East — Miami and New York — looked sloppy while the teams at the top of the Western Conference looked strong and took over the top spots in the weekly rankings. 1. Clippers (25-6, Last week ranked No. 1). The win streak…

  19. Report: Celtics, Mavericks among four teams trying to work Cousins trade

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Know this — the scenario about to be laid out tells you what DeMarcus Cousins and his people are thinking and hoping for. What it does not do is tell you the reality of the situation. Not in the least. The reality here is a complex dynamic that starts with Cousins firing his long-time agent…

  20. DeMarcus Cousins records first career triple-double against Celtics (VIDEO)

    Dec 31, 2012, 8:43 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Brandon Bass

    How’s that for a showcase game? With trade winds swirling around DeMarcus Cousins, the big man went out and put his skills on full display for Celtics GM Danny Ainge to get a good long look at in a huge 118-96 win at home. This wasn’t the prettiest triple-double game you’ll ever see — Cousins…

  22. Three Stars of the Night: The Butler did it

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Caron Butler

    Four games, three stars on a Sunday night. As always there are some honorable mention guys left out — Tony Parker with his 21, Monta Ellis with 30 points and 9 assists, and Al Jefferson with 30 against the Clippers front line almost made the cut. But instead, it’s an all-perimeter guys three stars tonight.…

  23. Could the Wizards land DeMarcus Cousins?

    Dec 30, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Over the course of the next few months, we’re going to hear an awful lot of trade speculation regarding DeMarcus Cousins. Different trade scenarios will surface, and all the while, the Kings will likely hold the public position that they “have no interest in trading Cousins” right up until they actually do it. The latest…

  24. Report: Maloofs reluctant to trade Cousins; Celtics among teams interested

    Dec 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Ever since the Kings organization suspended DeMarcus Cousins — for fighting with Keith Smart, the coach hired because it was thought he had a good relationship with the young big man — other teams have started poking around to see if the Kings are willing to trade Cousins. Among the teams very interested are the…

  25. Video: Kings’ Johnson hits game-winning three to beat Knicks

    Dec 29, 2012, 8:08 AM EDT

    James Johnson, Aaron Brooks

    Now that is drama. The Knicks almost completed an amazing comeback win — down 27 in the second quarter they came all the way back to lead by two points with less than 20 seconds to play. One basket probably seals the win but DeMarcus Cousins reads the Knicks play — Jason Kidd and Tyson Chandler…
