  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. With Dalembert out, DeMarcus Cousins to get a lot of rookie run

    Oct 13, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    dcousins

    In a few weeks, general managers in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Minnesota could face a question — why did you pass on DeMarcus Cousins? That’s because no rookie is likely to get off to a faster start than DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento (save maybe John Wall in Washington). With Samuel Dalembert out for the first…

  9. Samuel Dalembert out four to six weeks in Sacramento

    Oct 13, 2010, 12:11 AM EDT

    Dalembert_kings

    The Kings new center, the one that is supposed to blend so well with their offense and provide the defensive presence they need, is going to miss the first few weeks of the season. Not good. Samuel Dalembert is out four to six weeks with an abductor strain — the muscle that runs along your…

  10. George Maloof, minority Kings owner, arrested for DUI in Vegas

    Oct 11, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    maloof

    Joe and Gavin Maloof are the faces and primary owners of the Sacramento Kings, the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, plus a lot of other stuff you probably wish you owned. Their younger brother George is a minority owner in all of that, too. George was arrested in Las Vegas Saturday for driving under the…

  11. DeMarcus Cousins plans on going at Derrick Favors’ neck

    Oct 10, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    cousinsneck

    DeMarcus Cousins is not in this league to make friends. That was readily apparent from summer league, where the combustible rook was often jawing with both opponents and teammates, and swinging the odd elbow. But his early preseason results have been significantly impressive, and he’s got bigger plans down the line, especially for the players…

  12. Shareef Abdur-Rahim bumped to assistant GM for the Kings

    Oct 8, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Shareef Abdur-Rahim

    Shareef Abdur-Rahim played for 13 teams (four franchises, but 13 teams) in his 12-year NBA career, and collectively those 13 teams averaged 28.5 wins. Few players have been so intimately acquainted with NBA failure, but now Abdur-Rahim has a chance to be a part of a promising basketball enterprise, albeit as a front office executive…

  13. Kings cut training campers Donald Sloan and J.R. Giddens

    Oct 5, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    When the Sacramento Kings brought 19 players into training camp, they too brought in the understanding that at least four of those players would be cut before the season began. According to The Hoops Market, point guard Donald Sloan and swingman J.R. Giddens were the first to go. Among point guards, Sloan is survived by…

  14. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson may need an assist to get stadium

    Oct 4, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    Politicians by the very nature of the system don’t like to tell voters that something is hard or will not happen. This crosses all party lines — telling voters bad things are coming or needed does not win votes, so they avoid it. When they say something is bad, they are serious. Sacramento Mayor Kevin…

  15. David Stern provides cover if Maloofs want out of Sacramento

    Oct 1, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    The death of the Cal Expo plan is bad news — very bad news — if you’re a Kings fan living in Sacramento. Look at what NBA Commissioner David Stern told the Sacramento Bee Friday. “No one is packing up and backing up the trucks,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said Thursday, referring to the latest…

  16. NBA pulls back efforts to bring new arena to Sacramento. Moving trucks start warming up.

    Sep 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    In the past few years, the Maloof brothers (owners of the Kings) have been able to pull back from the messy politics of getting a new arena built for the Sacramento Kings. That’s because four years ago David Stern himself said he personally and the NBA offices would work to get a deal done. Last…

  17. After an attempt to build fails, will Sacramento Kings seek a new castle?

    Sep 25, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Under mayor Kevin Johnson — yes, former Suns player Kevin Johnson — there has been a renewed effort in Sacramento to find a way to build a new arena that would keep the Kings in town. But the latest and best in a while plan — a complex swap of the ARCO Arena land with…

  18. Beno Udrih, your Sacramento Kings starting point guard

    Sep 22, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Near the end of last season, Beno Udrih seemed to figure out how to make it work in Paul Westphal’s Sacramento. Granted, Kevin Martin and Sergio Rodriguez were gone, and Tyreke Evans missed some of those games with an injury. Still, the comfort level was unmistakable. This season, Westphal told the Sacramento Bee he is…

  19. ARCO name coming off Sacramento Arena after season

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    For the past quarter century — through Reggie Theus, Chris Webber, Vlade Divac and now Tyreke Evans — the Sacramento Kings have played at ARCO Arena. By the fall of 2011, that will be no more. The 25-year deal between ARCO — owned by BP — and the arena runs out in February and the…

  20. Samuel Dalembert wants the rock

    Sep 13, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    Philadelphia didn’t expect scoring out of Samuel Dalembert, he was the defensive stopper. Last season he got an average of 6.4 shots per game and that led to 8.1 points. Not much, but those numbers were up from the year before. But Dalembert can score, and he wants the rock, as he told RDS.ca (as…

  21. Omri Casspi not shocked but hurt by swastika graffiti on mural of him

    Sep 10, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Omri Casspi is home in his native Israel right now, celebrating Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, and preparing for another season in the N BA. His second, after an impressive rookie campaign with the up-and-coming Sacramento Kings. But all anyone is talking about right now is the news that someone is Sacramento painted a…

  22. The Hornets may not have been entirely truthful in their dismissal of Luther Head

    Sep 6, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Luther Head agreed with the New Orleans Hornets on the terms of a new two-year, $2.5 million contract, but one GM later, he was left out in the cold. The Hornets claimed that Head failed his physical due to a bum ankle, and the Hornets used that claim to sever ties with Head. In the…

  23. Report: J.R. Giddens also heading to Sacramento for training camp

    Sep 3, 2010, 4:39 PM EDT

    The Kings are clearly exploring their options going into camp, and according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, former Celtic (and more recently, Mavericks’ Summer Leaguer) J.R. Giddens will be joining free agent cast-off Luther Head in Sacramento for training camp. Giddens, too, was signed to a make-good, non-guaranteed contract, but will try to…

  24. Report: Luther Head invited to Kings camp on a partially guaranteed contract

    Sep 3, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    Luther Head was in Indiana last year, but the combo guard couldn’t really get a lot of run on a team that wanted to run. Then it looked like the Hornets were going to take him, until Jeff Bower got the boot as GM the new regime went with the old “he failed the physical”…

  25. Omri Casspi wants peace in the Middle East, using basketball to bring it

    Sep 3, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    In Washington D.C. a bunch of people in expensive suits are sitting around a table talking about a piece of paper that it is hoped will bring some stability and peace to the Middle East. Omri Casspi is on the ground, in Israel, talking to youth from his nation and Palestine, playing basketball with them,…
