Rajon Rondo Has Apparently Given Up on Playing Defense

Turmoil is brewing in Sacramento, which is something you could say about the Kings during almost every NBA season. Rumors about head coach George Karl getting fired get louder with each passing day.

Derek Fisher blasts Rondo over triangle offense criticism

The New York Knicks need a point guard and may pursue one in free agency, but it seems safe to say that said point guard won’t be Rajon Rondo.

Knicks coach Derek Fisher, who runs the triangle...

Route 56: It all went wrong for the Kings when Boogie danced

The race for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference is hardly a done deal. The competition will almost certainly linger into April with no clear resolution. This year’s 8 seed in the West will not be a 45- or 48-win team, as we’ve seen in past seasons. It will be a team near the .500 mark, and it’s no sure thing that the Golden State Warriors’ first-round playoff opponent...

DeMarcus Cousins ‘untouchable’ in trade talks

The Sacramento Kings are willing to pick up the phone and listen to trade talk—just don’t ask about DeMarcus Cousins.
