Sacramento Kings

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:35 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Portraits 2014

    Ben McLemore is part of the Kings future and general manager Pete D’Alessandro wants you to know that. In no uncertain terms. McLemore’s name popped in a trade rumor where he was part of a package suggested for Boston’s Rajon Rondo, but the deal died because Sacramento knows there is little chance (if any) Rondo…

  2. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

  3. Report: Trying to sell high, Kings make Isaiah Thomas available in trades

    Feb 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Kings fans love Isaiah Thomas and with good reason. We can all relate to the undersized guy picked dead last (60th) in the draft who has sliced his way to an impressive NBA season — 20.2 points and 6.3 assists a night, with a true shooting percentage of 56.8. He’s great at taking angles off…

  4. Report: Kings, Nets talking Marcus Thornton for Jason Terry, Reggie Evans

    Feb 18, 2014, 4:48 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    The new Sacramento Kings ownership and front office is aggressive. The Brooklyn Nets remain looking for players that can help them win now. Which leads to this interesting trade rumor courtesy Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: The Sacramento Kings are engaged in discussions to send guard Marcus Thornton to the Brooklyn Nets for guard Jason…

  5. Report: Kings offered McLemore, Thomas, picks for Rondo. Didn’t happen.

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    The Kings have their foundation up front in DeMarcus Cousins, but they need another elite player on the perimeter. Their GM Pete D’Alessandro knows it and is going after that piece. Like trying to land Rajon Rondo. Check out this interesting tidbit from Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears in his weekly power rankings (hat tip Celtics’…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

  7. Report: Knicks interested in trade for Hawks’ Jeff Teague

    Feb 17, 2014, 2:43 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Once again, the Knicks are considering slicing away part of their future flexibility for a quick fix now. New York has been shopping around for a point guard as the play of Raymond Felton has deteriorated this season. Their original goal was Toronto’s Kyle Lowry, but they couldn’t find a quick deal then after the…

  8. Phantom cam captures the best of the 2014 dunk contest (VIDEO)

    DamianLillardDC

    We all know that slow-motion makes everything much more dramatic and generally way cooler. It’s science. That’s a good thing, because last night’s dunk contest was all sort of a weird blur. Harrison Barnes attempted a layup (no, seriously) in the freestyle dunk period. Paul George did some cool stuff we couldn’t properly react to.…

  9. 2014 Dunk Contest: Ranking the dunks

    Feb 16, 2014, 12:26 AM EDT

    2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Let’s get this out of the way: that was an awful, awful dunk contest. Despite one of the most star-studded fields in years and some phenomenal athletes, the 2014 dunk contest was a complete dud. Most of the blame probably lies with the new contest format which, at the risk of recycling adjectives, was unforgivably…

  10. John Wall, Paul George lead East to 2014 Slam Dunk Contest title

    slam dunk wall george ross

    NEW ORLEANS – John Wall‘s final dunk of the night won the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest for the team representing the Eastern Conference, but the drastic format changes to the event, and not any of its dunks, are what will be remembered most from this year’s All-Star Saturday showcase. “I think it was cool,” Wall…

  11. The Extra Pass: Predictions for All-Star Weekend

    Feb 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

  12. Extra Pass: Jimmer Fredette salvaging NBA career with long 3-pointers

    Feb 13, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette – the bright lights of Madison Square Garden shining on him – walked the ball up court and called out a play. Of course, Fredette has never been big on plays. His freelancing, gunning style endeared him to fans at Brigham Young, where he carried the program to unprecedented heights. Fredette noticed his…

  13. Monday night NBA grades: All-Stars shine and a new-look Pelican

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy jeans for an Olympic skier… DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He certainly looked like an All-Star before hopping on a plane to New Orleans — 31 points on 11-of-19 shooting, five rebounds, three assists. Granted, he was being covered by Kyle Korver…

  14. Howard, Stoudemire, Parsons, Shumpert, more star in fantastic fake movie trailer (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2014, 4:52 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    The first thing you need to know is that there is a company called Relativity Sports which represents a whole lot of NBA players. Dan Fegan is the head man of their basketball operations. That operation includes a marketing team, which put together this funny fake movie trailer. Which is pretty amusing. They got Dwight…

  15. Report: Warriors looking to make trade to bolster bench

    Feb 12, 2014, 11:47 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear: The organization’s goal for this season was a top four seed in the West and home court in the first round of the playoffs. At 31-21, the Warriors are the six seed currently but are closer to Memphis in the nine seed out of the playoffs (2.5…

  16. Monday night NBA grades: Time to stop shoveling dirt on Anthony Bennett

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking this may be the best soccer goal celebration ever…. Anthony Bennett, Cleveland Cavaliers. You don’t know how a draft pick is going to pan out for three years. You just don’t. Some guys start fast but never really develop beyond that (Tyreke Evans,…

  17. Report: Suns would have ‘serious interest’ in Rudy Gay if he becomes a free agent

    Feb 8, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Houston Rockets

    Rudy Gay can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, should he choose to opt out of the final year of his contract which will pay him $19.3 million next season. The majority of players like to sign for as many guaranteed years as possible as soon as the option is available, both to secure…

  18. Ben McLemore may attempt a 720 dunk in the Slam Dunk Contest

    Feb 8, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Kings McLemore McCallum Basketball

    The video above shows a player getting about as close to a 720-degree dunk as we’re likely to see. Getting enough hangtime to perform two complete spins before throwing it down is a tall task, but one that Kings’ rookie Ben McLemore may attempt in the Dunk Contest in New Orleans next weekend. From SBNation’s…

  19. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas calls Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless a ‘fake tough guy’ after on-court incident (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    thomas bayless

    This is yet another example of why you don’t give a max contract to a player with the temperament of DeMarcus Cousins without the presence of any veterans on the roster to help with the team’s leadership. But this is only about him tangentially, so we’ll revisit this in a moment. Late in the fourth…

  20. Anthony Davis selected to fill Kobe Bryant’s All-Star slot in West

    Feb 7, 2014, 3:22 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    We told you earlier in the week it was coming down to two guys: Anthony Davis of the Pelicans or Goran Dragic of the Phoenix Suns. Kobe Bryant was voted an All-Star starter by the fans but can’t play due to his fractured knee, so the league office picks the replacement — meaning new commissioner…

  21. 2014 Slam Dunk Contest the most star-studded ever

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Paul George

    It’s been 14 years since the Slam Dunk Contest has featured multiple All-Stars. Heck, in the last two years, no All-Stars have participated. But after years of pleas, the NBA has finally assembled a Dunk Contest field that includes the game’s top talent. Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall headline the 2014 event –…

  22. The Extra Pass: Handicapping the All-Star Saturday events

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

  23. Wall, Lillard, George headline new look All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

  24. Reports: Dunk contest field headlined by George, Wall, Lillard

    Feb 6, 2014, 5:58 PM EDT

    Paul George

    We let you know last night that Damian Lillard said he was in for the dunk contest (and maybe much more). He’s not the only star. Multiple reports (including Yahoo, CSNWashington.com and ESPN) have given us what we expect to be the six-man dunk contest field: Paul George (Indiana Pacers) Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)…

  25. Rudy Gay says he’s unsure if he will test free agent market this summer

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:10 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    Rudy Gay has looked at home in Sacramento. The notoriously inefficient Gay has changed in the California capital, averaging 20.8 points a game with a spectacular true shooting percentage of 60.8 percent (it was 46.8 percent in Toronto) and a PER of 22.2 (14.9, right at the league average in Toronto). The question now on…
