The Kings have finally embraced the rebuild

Sacramento doesn’t seem to be taking shortcuts anymore. The Kings have been “rebuilding” since I was in high school. Since then I’ve graduated from college, started a career, seen my friends get married and seen the Kings in the playoffs exactly zero times. In fact, it’s been so long since the Kings were good, we probably shouldn’t call any efforts to become good ...

Opinion: Let Tyreke Evans Go in Free Agency

Tyreke Evans is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Although he does bring in unique assets, the Sacramento Kings shouldn’t bring him back. The fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft, Tyreke Evans, started his career with a bang. In his rookie year, Evans averaged around 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 […] Opinion: Let Tyreke Evans Go in Free Agency - A Royal Pain ...

Kings’ pick of De’Aaron Fox helped Sacramento fan score date with crush

Sacramento fans probably would’ve been happier with the Kings’ draft if they had taken sharpshooter Malik Monk at No. 10 — the Kings instead traded down, snagging Portland’s picks, and got Justin Jackson (No. 15) and Harry Giles (No. 20) — but all in all, the Kings had a very solid night Thursday. They walked away with Jackson, Giles, Kansas’ Frank Mason, and – most...

Sacramento Kings: Another great draft! But there are holes to fill

Report: Kings releasing veteran wing Arron Afflalo

After just one season with the team, the Sacramento Kings are reportedly releasing veteran guard Arron Afflalo. The move comes a day after Sacramento added three first-round picks to its roster, including fellow wing Justin Jackson from North Carolina.
