2011-2012 Sacramento Kings Thread

I really like the potential of Hickson and Cousins together.

that's a good offensive line up, but defense?

I like this. Hes a pretty good player.
This is a very good signing but how does his salary work?

We pay him whatever we bid on him(probably very small). Nets pay the rest.
Good signing just for the jersey sales.

eh I dont really like it. I dont think we really need a SF who can't shoot or handle. He's mainly a defensive 3/4 hybrid. I guess this is insurance for Chuck Hayes health situation?
the kings always need defense.
We pick up Outlaw's remaining four years. Our bid was $3 mill so it's a 4-year, $12 mill deal.

Clearly a big if, but if he gets back to the guy he was in Portland, I think it's a solid pickup. Four years is a little much, but it's the type of deal that can be easily moved in a trade. Outlaw is a pure SF. Typically a solid midrange shooter although he flopped big time as a starter in NJN. Seems like he would force Donte Greene out of the rotation, if he was gonna be a part of it anyway.

Can't read too much into that game tonight, but really liked what I saw from Jimmer. He's a baller. Defense was actually surprisingly good in spots -- contested shots, stayed with the Warriors guards. Offensively, I think he's gonna be fine.

Tyreke - Jimmer
Thornton - Garcia
Salmons - Outlaw
Cousins - Hickson
Hayes - JT
w/ Isaiah, DG, Honeycutt, Whiteside

Pretty deep. Should help us a lot with this short season.

I actually thought Donte played really well tonight. I was most impressed by him, Jimmer, Isaiah T, and Thornton. Hickson and JT make me miss Dalembert.

Yeah, if Hayes' heart problem turns serious, I think we'd take a look at bringing Sammy back for a year. Like I said, not gonna kill guys for the first preseason game, but JT and JJ didn't do enough defensively/on the boards. We know JT is a much better rebounder than he showed tonight.

Also liked Isaiah and thought Donte had a strong game offensively.
Jimmer will be the mormon tebow.

JIMMER is a ball player

Hell yeah man! I like where he dribbled down and pulled right up and hit the three.

Thanks for posting. Love Jimmer's confidence. If we can't make this team exciting through free agency, lets do it through the draft.
