Sacramento Kings

  1. DeMarcus Cousins suspended (even if that’s not the word they use) by Kings

    Feb 13, 2011, 3:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins has literally been everything people said about him prior to the draft. He’s been a hothead. He’s been a star. He’s been a beast. He’s been a huge pain in the neck. He’s been brilliant. He’s been a bonehead. The works. Tonight the pendulum has swung to bonehead, and the repercussions for Cousins’…

  2. Bill Walton, ghost of Jerry Garcia will in fan’s half-court shot

    Feb 10, 2011, 8:22 AM EDT

    bill+walton

    Like many teams, the Sacramento Kings run a promotion where a fan gets a chance at a half-court shot to win a bunch of money (or a trip or whatever). Wednesday night a Kings’ fan nailed it. Why? Because Bill Walton was courtside and summoned the spirit of Jerry Garcia on Grateful Dead night at…

  3. Is DeMarcus Cousins abandoning his strengths?

    Feb 7, 2011, 5:58 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Joe Treutlein of Draft Express thinks so: To say Cousins has undergone a dramatic role change in the NBA would be somewhat of an understatement. At the college level, Cousins was a dominant player in a variety of ways, utilizing his massive size, strength, and length to punish the opposition on the glass and finishing…

  4. Massive Midwest snowstorm strands Celtics in Sacramento

    UPDATE Feb. 2, 3:16 am: It’s official, they are stuck and spending an extra night in Sacramento. They will try to get home Wednesday. “We would have preferred to go further East, just so we can get closer to our time zone,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “At the end of the day, we just…

  5. Cousins says Brian Shaw motivated him against the Lakers

    Feb 1, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins is one of the most talented rookies in this year’s draft class. He’s also one of the most mercurial, and his play has been inconsistent throughout this season. However, the lightbulb seems to have gone off for Cousins recently: after the Bobcats held him to 9 points on 2-8 shooting on January 15th,…

  6. Kobe Bryant moves to 8th all-time scorer, hits 21 in 1st, 1-5 clutch in loss

    Jan 29, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Last night was just a big night for Kobe Bryant in general. You might even say it was a rollercoaster of emotions for him. Perhaps a rollercoaster of love. Maybe not. By the end of the night he’d hit another amazing career milestone, had an insane first quarter display, a disappointing end, and a loss.…

  7. Tyreke Evans will play against the Knicks tonight

    Jan 14, 2011, 6:37 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Kings guard Tyreke Evans will play against the Knicks tonight. Evans, who has struggled with Plantar Fasciitis, has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle. Evans has played 31 games so far this season, and averaged 17.2 points and 5.4 assists on 39.3% shooting in…

    John Wall

    What you missed while planning to be one of the Joker’s henchmen… The Cavaliers historically bad performance against the Lakers is our Anti-Game of he Night. The Hawks hosting the Bucks was postponed due to snow and will be played on March 15. Wizards 136, Kings 133 (OT): This was more roller coaster than basketball…

  9. Sacramento Kings to play in “Power Balance” Arena

    Well, the arena in Sacramento is older, but starting next year we know it’s less likely to fall over. Maybe. Sactown Royalty broke the story (later confirmed by the team) that as of next season the ARCO Arena will be known as the Power Balance Arena. ARCO had a 25-year naming rights deal that will…

  10. The NBA’s Anaheim Kings? Come, connect the dots with us.

    With the latest stadium deal now dead in Sacramento, it doesn’t take much to get people in certain other markets dreaming of the NBA in their home town. Pictures of DeMarcus Cousins dominating in the paint and Tyreke Evans getting treatment for plantar fasciitis in their city fill the minds of young children with NBA…

  11. Games of the night: Dallas has injuries, what was Denver’s excuse?

    Jan 7, 2011, 8:09 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Before the season, if you peaked ahead on the schedule, this looked like an interesting Thursday night of basketball. Turns out, not so much. Thunder 99, Mavericks 95: Dallas has the much-discussed injuries to Dirk Nowitzki and Caron Butler. The effort is still there and while this is a deep team, there are limits to…

  12. If Kings make trade, saving money will be motive

    Jan 6, 2011, 9:44 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    At $44 million, the Sacramento Kings have the lowest payroll in the NBA this season. Still, at the trading deadline they will be sellers with their primary motive is to keep costs down and preserve their cap space heading into the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, according to Sam Amick of FanHouse in a detailed post…

  13. Samuel Dalembert not happy with shrinking role, may seek trade

    Jan 6, 2011, 10:32 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    In the Sacramento Kings last three games, Samuel Dalembert has averaged 10 minutes and 3.3 points per game. That’s primarily because rookie DeMarcus Cousins is tearing it up — he has averaged 22.7 points on 55.8 percent shooting over that same three games. Cousins is playing well and Cousins is the future, so he gets…

  14. Kings talking trades for Omri Casspi, Carl Landry

    Jan 3, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Sure the Kings have the worst record in the NBA, but there is talent on that roster. The kind of roster and situation other GM’s are looking to exploit and pick over like vultures on a carcas. Some of that talant is not available — Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins — but some of it is……

  15. Video: Wild ending to Kings, Grizzlies game

    Dec 30, 2010, 8:16 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans O.J. Mayo

    Best. Ending. Ever. (Or at least this season) If you watch one video this year… why? But if you did, this would be a dang good choice, with O.J. Mayo and Tyreke Evans making it a dramatic 5.5 seconds. Enjoy, and don’t say we didn’t get you anything for Christmas this year.  

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Grizzlies and Kings with the finish of the year

    Dec 30, 2010, 6:51 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans Francisco Garcia Eugene Jeter

    What you missed while purchasing the iPhone bottle opener… Kings 100, Grizzlies 98: Two struggling teams that could use a win and it came down to this: Kings up 97-96 with 5.5 seconds left, no timeouts left for anyone. Memphis inbounds the ball from the sidelines to O.J. Mayo and runs a poorly-designed play —…

  17. Sacramento Kings not interested in Yao Ming

    Dec 29, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    As we told you yesterday the Houston Rockets are seeing if there is any interest in Yao Ming’s expiring contract around the league. They did contact the Sacramento Kings but were told, “thanks, but no thanks” according to the Sacramento Bee. The reason is the discussions started with DeMarcus Cousins, a rookie that — despite…

  18. Kings, Bobcats have talked to Rockets about Yao Ming trade

    Dec 28, 2010, 10:22 AM EDT

    Yao_autographs

    We told you yesterday that Yao Ming and his $17 million expiring contract was available in a trade to a team looking for cap space, but we weren’t sure what teams were interested. Try the Sacramento Kings and Charlotte Bobcats. That according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, who adds that the Rockets are…

  19. Tyreke Evans considering laser procedure for foot, would sideline him three months

    Dec 28, 2010, 2:29 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, John Salmons

    Tyreke Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot all season, a painful condition that is slowing his game and frustrating him. Not that it really showed on Monday when he dropped 32 on the Clippers, but he has missed games and seen a foot specialist due to the pain. Pain that has…

  20. Vince Carter likely out until next weekend

    Dec 26, 2010, 6:33 PM EDT

    Vince Carter,

    Vince Carter has yet to put on a Phoenix Suns uniform — and if you don’t think they could use his points and shot creation you didn’t watch the Suns fall to the Clippers Sunday. He may be back in about a five days to a week from a tendon strain in his quad, Suns…

  21. Joe Maloof offers Geoff Petrie and Paul Westphal a bit of breathing room

    Dec 25, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Paul Westphal

    The 5-22 Kings, owners of the worst record in the entire league despite having some talented young pieces, are a genuine disappointment on a number of levels. As Sacramento’s season has spiraled further and further into the abyss, rumors and reports of the seemingly inevitable firing of Paul Westphal have begun to surface. Indications that…

  22. Tyreke Evans says he will not play All-Star weekend

    Dec 24, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

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

    A combination of injuries — physical and emotional — have crippled Tyreke Evans‘ season. Plantar fasciitis, one of the NBA’s most unfortunate, nagging injuries, has hindered Evans throughout the year, and made sure that the reigning Rookie of the Year would not be selected to this year’s All-Star Game. Regardless, Evans is a shoe-in for…

  23. Sacramento is just a train wreck

    Dec 24, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Kings Hornets Basketball

    DeMarcus Cousins — the guy who lost his starting job after coach Paul Westphal called him unprofessional — was coming off the court in the fourth quarter and was offered a high five by Westphal Thursday night. Cousins declined it. Westphal grabbed is arm and they had words. Again. And that may have been third…

  24. Paul Westphal’s seat gets hot in Sacramento

    Dec 23, 2010, 12:31 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Sacramento Kings

    The Sacramento Kings are not a good basketball team. Their offense is terrible, and they’re somehow worse on defense. Their record of 5-21 on the season — and 1-9 in their last 10 games — is indicative of a young team that is regressing, not improving. Then there is the mess surrounding the curious benching…

  25. Kings bench, fine DeMarcus Cousins for giving “choke” sign during game

    Dec 22, 2010, 7:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    With 19 seconds left and the Kings up five points on the Warriors Tuesday night, Golden State’s Reggie Williams went to the free throw line and missed the first of two pretty badly off the front rim. DeMarcus Cousins did a little taunting, walking out into the lane and making the choking gesture. That offended…
