  1. Amick: Teams expect Kings to take Jimmer with the #10 pick

    Jun 23, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    BYU v Kansas State

    More stuff from Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick, who’s been on fire today: Rival teams now expect the Kings to take Jimmer Fredette at No. 10. Taking Fredette would have some benefits for the Kings. He would help space the floor for Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins, both of whom are nearly unstoppable when they operate…

    The “most intriguing rumor/report award” of the day so far definitely goes to DraftExpress’ Jonathan Givony, who gave us this cryptic tidbit a little earlier:  Teams calling Sacramento about the #7 pick are being told it’s already been moved. Problem is, no one knows to who, or for which player. Okay, that’s kind of a…

  4. Starting with Cavaliers at No. 4, draft will mean hard choices

    Lietuvos Rytas's Jonas Valanciunas (C) j

    For all the chatter otherwise, it would be stunning not to see Kyrie Irving not go No. 1 and Derrick Williams No. 2. We may well have stunning, it’s been that kind of NBA season, but you might not want to bet on it. As we said before, the draft gets interesting when the Jazz…

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    There was a time, right after Kemba Walker made big plays in crunch time leading his UConn Huskies to the national title, that Walker was a top five pick in this draft. But his stock is falling and he could plummet down the draft board all the way to the Knicks at No. 17 (no…

    The Sacramento Kings arena saga took an interesting turn on Wednesday when it was announced that the Maloof family had given up majority ownership of the Palms Casino after a “recapitalization agreement” with their main creditors, TPG Capital and Leonard Green and Partners. The deal reduces the Maloof’s ownership from about 80 percent to 10-20…

  11. Maloofs give up part of casino to erase debt, is that good for Sacramento?

    Jun 15, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    maloofs-kings

    The conventional wisdom has been that part of the reason the Maloof brothers worked so hard to move their Sacramento Kings to Anaheim was to deal with debt problems — they were so overrun with debt in other areas of their lives they needed to moved the Kings to a higher-revenue place. That may not…

    Kevin Johnson

    Next Tuesday the Kryie Irving lottery takes place in Secaucus New Jersey. Some people call it the NBA Draft Lottery, which will determine the draft order for the league. But really this year it’s about Irving or getting a future role player. The Sacramento Kings have an 8.8 percent chance of landing the top prize…

  15. NBA crew in Sacramento tries to rebuild Kings image

    So it turns out, the Maloof brothers trying to move the Kings out of Sacramento did not sit well with the locals. Who could have seen that coming? David Stern responded by sending the A-Team. No, not that A-Team (although some B.A. Baracus could go a long way to helping the situation). This was some…

  16. Knicks have eyes for free agent Samuel Dalembert

    May 4, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Knicks are talking defense this summer. Which is a change of pace since they didn’t play any last season. But while the talk of defense has in part focused on Mike D’Antoni and his coaching style (reports are he’s being pushed to hire an assistant as a defensive coordinator) that ignores the real problem…

    Turns out, nobody wants to be compared to ousted Dodger owner Frank McCourt. Which you can’t blame someone for, McCourt and his wife are setting new lows in professional sports team ownership. The Maloof brothers, who own the “now we’re staying” Sacramento Kings, did not like it recently when Lakers coach Phil Jackson compared their…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Dallas hits, Kobe misses and Mavs make it a series

    May 3, 2011, 3:10 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant missed shot

    Are these Dallas Mavericks different? Different than the team that falls short, that so many pundits thought didn’t know how to close, that was too old or too soft. The one that keeps getting smoked in the playoffs. Or was it just the Lakers having one of their patented lapses? Combined with Kobe missing a…

  19. David Stern says ball in Sacramento’s court now

    May 2, 2011, 6:07 PM EDT

    David Stern

    Put up or shut up. David Stern is too much the diplomat to put it like that, but it was the gist of his comments in a Monday conference call discussing the decision by the Maloof brothers not to seek relocation from Sacramento to Anaheim. Couching everything in words of praise for Sacramento fans and…

  20. Anaheim may never get an NBA team thanks to Lakers

    Not to deflate the mood on what should be a day of celebration in Sacramento, but it is quite possible that a year from now Kings fans will lose their battle to keep the Kings in Sacramento. If efforts to get a new arena built fall short — and if public money is required it…

    Champaign corks should be popping. Horns should be honking in downtown as people in cars shout “here we stay.” There should be spontaneous parties in the street. Bloggers should hug mainstream newspaper writers. The Kings are staying in Sacramento. That is fantastic news — this is a market that has proven it will wholeheartedly supported…
