Sacramento Kings

  1. DeMarcus Cousins shows maturity by admitting immaturity

    Dec 1, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    dcousins

    DeMarcus Cousins: Real trouble or just immature? It may be a little of both, but more just immature if you look at what he told Sam Amick of FanHouse about being thrown out of practice Monday. “I was being selfish,” Cousins said after tallying 20 points and eight rebounds in a loss to Indiana on…

  2. Video proof Josh McRoberts has hops

    Dec 1, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s not every day when we can bring you a high-flying Josh McRoberts highlight. This is what the Pacers do well, pushing the ball and getting some points in transition. Great dish from TJ Ford. But in the end, it’s about McRoberts climbing the ladder in a way I’m not sure we thought he could.

  3. How DeMarcus Cousins is securing Paul Westphal’s job

    Nov 30, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Paul Westphal

    There are problems with the Sacramento Kings — they are not good and seem to be getting worse. They are a terrible shooting team that has the fourth worst offense in the NBA despite having Tyreke Evans in it. Their defense isn’t much better — and it’s all slipping, they are 1-9 in their last…

  4. Kings assign Hassan Whiteside to the D-League

    Nov 30, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    whiteside

    This is exactly how NBA teams should use the D-League. Hassan Whiteside is just a ridiculous athlete, but he’s still figuring out how to play basketball at the NBA level. He needs time on the court, something Paul Westphal can’t really give him in Sacramento right now. So Whiteside has been assigned to the D-League’s…

  5. DeMarcus Cousins kicked out of Sacramento practice

    Nov 29, 2010, 6:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    Remember how at Summer League a lot of people were watching DeMarcus Cousins play and saying, “how did he drop all the way to No.5?” (I’m sheepishly raising my hand…) Well, um, the rumors of him being difficult to deal with are apparently more than rumors. DeMarcus Cousins was kicked out of Kings practice today…

  6. Kings waive Antoine Wright

    Nov 29, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    AWright_Kings

    Antoine Wright, the seldom-used swingman of the Sacramento Kings who has only made headlines this season for a DUI, has been waived by the team, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo. The Kings signed him this summer out of Toronto, but he has barely gotten off the bench. Wright has played just 31 minutes total…

  7. We could do this everyday… more Blake Griffin highlights

    Nov 26, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    BGriffin_dunk2

    Maybe you missed what Blake Griffin did to the Kings on Thanksgiving (25 points, 15 boards), but Shaquille O’Neal didn’t. Nor did LeBron James. Both of them tweeted during the game they were watching Blake Griffin — and they are not alone. Guys around the league are taking notice. Personally, just can’t get enough Griffin…

  8. Games of the night: Where the Clippers pair beats the Kings pair

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    gordon_griffin_clippers

    We hope you missed these games because you were with family and giving thanks, or at least because you were rooting against the Cowboys… Hawks 116, Wizards 96: The Hawks played their best game in a couple weeks, which started with them getting the ball inside. With JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche the Wizards have…

  9. Report: Kings have made calls to trade for a point guard

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:46 AM EDT

    Image (1) Evans_3-thumb-250x339-9343.jpg for post 1342

    The struggling Sacramento Kings have an idea of what they need to do. Right now, Tyreke Evans is the point guard for the Sacramento Kings. And he’s not a bad one. Certainly a score-first guy but someone averaging 5.2 assists per game, about 18.9 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor…

  10. Jerry Sloan to miss next two Jazz games

    Nov 18, 2010, 2:09 PM EDT

    The comeback king Utah Jazz will have to do it without coach Jerry Sloan on the sidelines the next couple games. He will miss the Jazz’s next two games to attend the funeral of a family member, the Jazz announced today. Those are games Friday night in Salt Lake City against San Antonio, followed by…

  11. Geoff Petrie has the Kings all wrong

    Nov 17, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Geoff Petrie

    The last thing that any sports fan wants to read or hear is that their team’s leadership — owners, coaches, GMs, etc. — doesn’t seem to know something that they obviously should. With that in mind, I’d encourage all Kings fans who planned on feeling good about their team’s direction today to move along and…

  12. Kings’ Jason Thompson can be yours, if you want him

    Nov 15, 2010, 10:12 AM EDT

    jthompson_kings

    Interesting note out of ESPN’s Mark Stein this morning: (Sacramento forward Jason) Thompson is averaging just 15.4 minutes per game off the bench and has been shopped by the Kings, who according to one source with knowledge of the talks offered the 6-11, 250-pounder to Atlanta in a deal featuring young point guard Jeff Teague.…

  13. Report: DeMarcus Cousins’ behavior is garnering offers, not caution

    Nov 13, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    So you’d think that getting fined by your team for clashing with coaches would be a bad thing. Turns out DeMarcus Cousins has really only improved his stock by being, you know, DeMarcus Cousins. After getting fined earlier this week for what Marc Stein described as a series of clashes leading to “tension” in the…

  14. Cousins’ attitude a problem in Sacramento?

    Nov 12, 2010, 6:05 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    ESPN.com’s Marc Stein has some disturbing news for Kings fans regarding rookie power forward DeMarcus Cousins: Word is that handling rookie forward DeMarcus Cousins is proving to be an even bigger job for coach Paul Westphal and his staff than expected, even after the Kings hired Cousins’ high school coach (Otis Hughley) in hopes of…

  15. The Seattle Kings? Microsoft’s Ballmer’s move highlights Sacramento’s paranoia

    Nov 12, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    Seattle_Sonics

    In the end, this story is really more about the state of mind in Sacramento than it is about reality in Seattle. Recently, Steve Ballmer — one of the guys in on the ground floor of Microsoft, the man who was the company’s spokesman for many years — sold off some of his shares of…

  16. Kings’ Antoine Wright arrested for DUI

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    AWright_Kings

    There seems to be something about guys in cars with the Sacramento Kings. Former coach Eric Musselman got a DIU, as did minority owner George Maloof. Then there was Tyreke Evans, who got cited and suspended for a game after a 100 mph cruise through the city. Now Antoine Wright has joined group, the reserve…

  17. Winderman: Contraction not a bad idea, just bad negotiations

    Oct 28, 2010, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Contraction as collective-bargaining threat is lamentable on so many levels. In does little to advance the process, offers a solution to nothing. But contraction as a means toward competitive renewal? It is an option that should not be summarily dismissed, albeit one better debated at a time other than amid the expiration of a CBA.…

  18. David Stern talks contraction: We’re not that serious, but we’re going to talk about it anyway.

    Oct 22, 2010, 4:29 PM EDT

    Image (1) stern_draft-thumb-250x140-14445.jpg for post 2721

    One David Stern quote from his conference call with the media Friday showed just how of two minds the league is on the idea of contraction (folding one or more struggling franchises). “The issue of contraction is one that has to be asked as part of negotiation with players…” Stern said. “But if there are…

  19. NBA Season Preview: The Sacramento Kings

    Oct 19, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    Kings_team

    Last season: 25-57, in a year that was really all about figuring out that Tyreke Evans is a star you can anchor a team around. He is. And they found a nice young core to go around him. Head Coach: Paul Westphal, who did a pretty good job trying to build young team and getting…

  20. Donté Greene will start for the Kings this season

    Oct 18, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Donte Greene

    Donté Greene has only started two preseason games for the Kings thus far, put Paul Westphal has apparently already seen enough in Greene to deem him Sacramento’s starter at small forward for the coming season. Omri Casspi gives the Kings another strong alternative should Greene slump in his third season, and Sacramento also has Francisco…

  21. Darnell Jackson has dealt with a lot to get here

    Oct 17, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    darnelljackson

    The Sacramento Bee wins the feature-of-the-day award with a very brief profile of Darnell Jackson, the former Cavalier brought into the Kings in the Jon Brockman trade. The opening pretty much sells you on wishing nothing but the best for Jackson: Of all the tattoos on Darnell Jackson’s body, it’s one on his right wrist…

  22. Saturday Starting Five: Your Preseason Rookie Report

    Oct 16, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    griffcli

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  23. We know what you really care about… Laker Girl Ashley is doing fine

    Oct 14, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    lakergirl_ashley4

    When you weren’t watching Kobe Bryant still looking a step slow and lacking elevation on his shots — he went 2-10 last night, now shooting 14.3 percent for all of preseason — you were worried about Laker Girl Ashley. She was the one that had Sacramento’s Carl Landry fall on her as Landry and Matt…

  24. Tyreke Evans rolls both ankles in one game

    Oct 14, 2010, 11:42 AM EDT

    Tevans_MBarnes

    Seems everywhere you look in the NBA right now guys are banged up and playing through pain, like you normally see in March. Not October. Add Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans to the list, the Sacramento King guard drove the lane against the Lakers with 7:09 left, twisted his left ankle and came out…

  25. Ron Artest’s YouTube recommendation of the day: wild animal fights

    Oct 14, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Artest_kings

    Ron Artest did it all for the Lakers Wednesday night: 18 points on 7 of 11 shooting, 4 of 5 from three, plus he had four rebounds. More than that, he was the steady mature voice on the court, stepping up with Kobe Bryant still hobbled. Artest was directing guys in the offense. After the…
