Sacramento Kings

  1. Kings own online store goes dark, not that anyone notices

    Aug 28, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    2012TRobIntroductionPresser7

    There is just not a lot of demand for Sacramento Kings gear right now. They are not very good, they don’t have a huge national fan base, and some think they have the ugliest jersey in pro sports. Even the local fan base feels ownership has been flipping them the bird for the past few…

  2. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

  3. Report: Donte Greene agrees to deal with Brooklyn Nets

    Aug 23, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Donte Green

    The Nets have rounded out their roster. Apparently. They bringing in swingman Donte Greene — a guy who had a lot of shots in Sacramento, but like his three pointers often missed the mark. The report of a deal comes from Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. Over at Nets are Scorching they add this is…

  4. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  5. Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Martell Webster, Rick Adelman

    Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently. The Wizards worked out free agent Martell Webster and he could sign with them, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Or, they could add one of the other veterans they are considering.…

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Right after capturing gold in London, LeBron James suggested this could be it for him and the Olympics. He didn’t know if he would keep going. But after thinking about it for a week, he sounds like he’s in. LeBron was back in Akron doing charity events last weekend and spoke with the Associated Press:…

    Last season was the summer of the Pro-Am leagues like the Drew League — with the NBA locked out the stars flocked to play there and so did our eyes. This summer our eyes have been back at the Vegas Summer League and London. But the Drew League was still going on in Los Angeles…

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. One thing that frustrates me about the NBA more than anything else is how small the list of title contenders…

  12. Kings extend coach Keith Smart’s contract to 2014

    Aug 7, 2012, 2:01 AM EDT

    Keith Smart

    Keith Smart did a nice job with the Kings last year — taking over a team Paul Westphal had lost and connecting with key players. And by Kings players we mean DeMarcus Cousins. It all starts there. Kings management was impressed enough — and is desperate for some semblance of consistency — that they have…

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love.

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    LAS VEGAS — Before Anthony Davis’ fourth-quarter entrance into Thursday night’s Team USA demolition of the Dominican Republic, LeBron James grabbed him, said a few words hugged him and tried to pump him up. When Davis drained a three and was fouled on the play for a four-point play, the USA Bench erupted right next…

    LAS VEGAS — Any good coach plays to the strengths of the guys on his roster. And Mike Krzyzewski is a very good coach. He looks at a roster of elite players entering their peak, a roster deep with great athletes no other team in the world could match. He and assistant coach Mike D’Antoni…

  24. Kings reach deal to keep Jason Thompson in house

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Greivis Vasquez

    Jason Thompson is one of the NBA’s better kept secrets. Mostly because nobody really watched the Sacramento Kings the past couple years. He’s a 6’11” athletic power forward who can get to the rim and shot 39 percent beyond 16 feet (good enough that you have to respect it). He scored 9.1 points per game…
