Hey guys, I'm going to be contributing to www.draftwatchers.com (AB83Rules' site) in the NBA Section. I just did a write-up on the Kings, encompassing my thoughts on the past season, what they need, and what I think they'll do in the Draft & Free Agency.
Please give it a read and let me know what you think. LINK
Pretty good. I think if Rubio isn't around at 4 the Kings will also consider Flynn and Jennings. My gut is telling me Jrue or Flynn would be the pick. Geoff doesn't give a flip if people call it a reach he is taking the player he thinks is the best, end of story. Jrue has a lot of length and could bring defense to the PG position. Evans or Jennings would be on the second tier of possibilities I think.
In FA if the Kings decide to make some moves I think they look hard at Ariza, Gortat, and Anderson.
You should read sactownroyalty.com Pete. It is a really good fansite and I think you would really like Ziller. He has a lot of bball knowledge. Check out his box stat thingy he posted about today.
Sweet, thank you for the heads up. The way we're working it right now is more focused on the draft/player profiles/mocks, and I'm taking the perspective of team needs and their direction as it relates to player movement. As a result, I need to improving my knowledge of the "pulse" of a franchise, so referring me to that Ziller guy is appreciated. IMO, intelligent, die hard fans are a good source of knowledge.
I think that Gortat's going to be looking to start, and I think that Hawes has control of that spot for the Kings at this point.
On the PG front, my only concern with Flynn is that they haven't worked him out yet, although they may get around to it. Interesting to hear that you think that he and Jrue would be in the first tier with Evans and Jennings on the second. For most teams, I think it would be exactly the opposite.
But like you said, Petrie doesn't give a damn, and he's earned that right.
