Sacramento Kings

  1. Fredette sees similarities between himself, Tim Tebow

    Jul 15, 2011, 3:49 PM EST

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Is Jimmer Fredette the Tim Tebow of the NBA? Interesting question. Both were huge college stars with questions about how their games would translate to the next level. Both have a religious aspect to their popularity. Both are locked out right now. Tebow and Fredette also both are at the American Century Championships this weekend,…

  2. Today’s NBA or Europe roundup — Jimmer’s staying

    Jul 15, 2011, 2:23 PM EST

    Seems like every day one or more NBA players say they are open to the idea of playing overseas during the NBA lockout. While we have our doubts about how many will actually go (even if the lockout drags into the season), here’s a roundup of who is saying and doing what in the last…

  3. Report: Spurs, Knicks called Cavaliers about Casspi

    Jul 4, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    Omri Casspi

    The only really interesting pre-lockout trade in the NBA was the Cavaliers sending J.J. Hickson to the Sacramento Kings for Omri Casspi and a future pick (likely first rounder but there are a number of protections on it). Generally, it is thought the Kings won that trade (they got the better player). But there is…

  4. Study shows Sacramento arena would bring billions to surrounding area

    Jul 1, 2011, 8:59 PM EST

    ProposedKingsArena

    While the NBA stumbles all over itself trying to divide up a multi-billion dollar pie, the folks in Sacramento are making moves to put their own pie into the oven. The Think Big Sacramento coalition, which is the ever-changing moniker of the grassroots political coalition to keep the Kings in town (formerly Here We Build),…

  5. With NBA lockout there are plenty of losers, but it starts with fans

    Jul 1, 2011, 8:02 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The NBA locks out and there are tons of losers. It’s not the owners and the players. Sure, they are shooting their own business in the foot, but when it is all said and done the owners will be insanely wealthy and the players will still make a lot of money playing a game. It’s…

  6. Sacramento, Toronto will futilely attempt to lure Tyson Chandler in free agency

    Jun 30, 2011, 6:35 PM EST

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    With the NBA a bit short on Dwight Howards these days, the prototype for an effective center has shifted to a slightly more attainable model: Tyson Chandler. The Mavericks’ center anchored an impressive half-court defense that could switch from man-to-man to zone and back effortlessly and fluidly, and has for the moment Chandler has become…

  7. Cavaliers trade J.J. Hickson to Kings for Omri Casspi

    Jun 30, 2011, 1:37 PM EST

    Omri Casspi

    Multiple reports now have the deal done, one trade right before the deadline. The Cavaliers and Kings will swap young forwards, with J.J. Hickson going to the Kings for Omri Casspi. This deal may be the last before lockout begins at midnight, according to a tweet from Marc Stein or ESPN. The Cavaliers also would…

  8. Jimmer fever in Sacramento might help bring new arena

    jimmer-kings

    Jimmer Fredette, the most talked about player in this year’s NBA draft, was selected No. 10 overall by the Sacramento Kings on Thursday. 30 minutes later, the Kings had a splash page with his likeness up ready to sell tickets on their website. Within another 30 minutes, Jimmer was trending worldwide on Twitter and was…

  9. Kings to make a play for Aaron Brooks?

    Jun 26, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    One of the big questions after the Kings’ draft-day moves was “Who is going to get the ball to all these guys?” They traded for John Salmons (21% usage)  to go with Marcus Thornton (25% usage), and Tyreke Evans (25 percent usage), then drafted Jimmer Fredette, who’s not a playmaker and who’s biggest contribution is…

  10. Sacramento is very excited for the young man who John Salmons will be stealing shots from

    Fredette stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Bucks as the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    I’m starting to feel like Jimmer Fredette is the NBA equivalent of “Snakes on a Plane.” You either get it and think it’s completely awesome, or you don’t, and think it’s completely stupid. Sacramento Kings fans? Well, they’re much like the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Austin where I saw the opening of “Snakes on a…

  11. NBA Draft day trade wrap-up… because we all got confused

    Jun 24, 2011, 11:34 AM EST

    Fredette stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Bucks as the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    There was a point while putting up PBT’s pick-by-pick updates through the draft that I thought every pick on the board started with “He was selected for Team X as part of a trade…” To help sort it all out, here is a breakdown of all the draft day trades. • Bobcats, Bucks, Kings big…

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

    Jun 23, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    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…

  13. Report: Bobcats, Bucks, Kings complete three-way trade

    Jun 23, 2011, 4:40 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Milwaukee Bucks have been actively shopping their No. 10 pick for a while. The Kings have actively been shopping the No. 7 pick. They have found a partner with each other and the Charlotte Bobcats thrown in for a three way deal that will blow up every mock draft you’ve read. The sides have…

  14. The Kings have almost definitely traded their #7 pick, and may want Monta Ellis

    Jun 23, 2011, 4:18 PM EST

    maloofs-kings

    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…

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

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:07 PM EST

    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…

  16. Kemba Walker is falling in the draft. How low will he go?

    Jun 23, 2011, 11:42 AM EST

    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…

  17. Ford: Kings may trade #7 pick for Felton

    Jun 21, 2011, 6:47 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    More draft rumors! This one comes courtesy of ESPN.com’s Chad Ford: The phones have been ringing off the hook today with just 48 hours to go before the NBA draft. Here are some more quick hitters on what I’m hearing. • Would the Kings be willing to send the No. 7 pick to the Nuggets…

  18. Jimmer Fredette will go in the lottery… but will he succeed?

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    General managers came out of the NBA Draft Combine saying Jimmer Fredette was brilliant in the interviews. Then he has gone into a series of workouts for teams and impressed by holding his own against other top point guards in the draft. He’s tried his best to answer the many questions about how his game…

  19. Kings Arena Update: Kevin Johnson working with Ron Burkle’s right hand man

    Jun 17, 2011, 5:55 PM EST

    anderson kj romani

    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…

  20. Jason Thompson out 4-6 weeks with toe fracture

    Jun 16, 2011, 6:17 PM EST

    Thompson_Jason

    Via Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports: Kings say forward Jason Thompson has a fracture in right great toe. He will wear a walking boot for 4-6 weeks before re-evaluation. The arrival of DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento meant that Thompson had to give up a significant chunk of his minutes in the 2010-11 season —…

  21. Antoine Wright says that the Kings were a mess

    Jun 15, 2011, 6:41 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Paul Westphal

    Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick has an excellent story up today on former top prospect Antoine Wright, who has allowed himself to go from a top prospect to a first-round pick to a journeyman who spent last season playing in China and is now looking for an NBA job at the age of 27. The piece…

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

    Jun 15, 2011, 12:27 PM EST

    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…

  23. Ron Artest tells the story of how he was almost a Clipper

    Ron Artest with the Clippers? Instead of the Kings? Monday night Artest went on a little twitter binge looking back over the course of his career and it included the story where he was almost traded to the Clippers. Here are all the posts Did ya know when I got traded to sac (Sacramento) that…

    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.
