On kingsfans.com, some posters were talking about getting rid of him to clear salary. His salary is a bargain for JT IMO. If anyone needs to go because of their salaries:

Thorton
hayes
salmons
landry (nvr liked the signing)-i still can't believe this team chose him over Lopez. Lopez is making less money and he's has a team option next season. He is a defensive anchor of the Blazers. I would love to see Cousins and Lopez work together. But what's done is done.....
They didn't choose Landry over Lopez. Lopez was traded to the blazers in the Reke trade

We got Vasquez

i thought the kings got the rights to lopez and then traded him to the blazers for two 2nd round picks. If the kings wanted lopez, i don't think the blazers needed to be involved

I don't think that's how it happened but I could be wrong.

Either way I want Thornton and Hayes gone as soon as possible

Parker>Wiggins! But you think JT sucks? I think he's serviceable.

I'll take either one. I was just messing with Val cause he has a weird hatred for the Kings and an even weirder liking of the T Wolves (dudes team selection is all over the map).

JT is an average backup PF at his best. This year, he has struggled. IMO, he has had his time in Sac. He has been here for a while and I think its better for both parties if he gets a change in scenery. On some squads, he would never play. He has struggled on offense this year more than usual, and hasn't rebounded like he did in the past. What exactly does he do well? "Bring energy?" Hasn't translated to anything... And he was drafted pretty high. I think 12th. For being a pick that high, he has disappointed.

He has been here throughout our bleakest times and remained professional which I appreciate. But, he is used to losing and probably doesn't even hate it. We need new blood. New players. And JT needs a change also. Trust me, you won't miss him. Landry is A LOT better.
I <3 sign lady!!!
Awesome comeback win. We were playing so bad in the second quarter I thought we had no chance.
AWESOME WIN

cousins was actually showing great leadership and energy out there...I was impressed...
I loved how that lineup played at the end: IT, Ben Mac, Outlaw, PPat and Cousins. Probably my favorite lineup. Even Marsh's boy Jimmer came in and did good things. Its weird, Jimmer has done nothing in the NBA but when he comes in the game he ALWAYS gets a lot of attention from the opposing defense. He gets doubled and draws crowds which opens it up for his teammates. He usually only gets a few minutes at home and the crowd gets excited. So, maybe the defense keys in on him because they think he'll try and force something. Whatever it is, I like when he gets in the game early. We go on runs some times. If not, who the hell cares. At least its entertaining
Jimmer sucked but he hit a huge 3 that shifted momentum and put us within 2
We're aggressively pursuing trades right now apparently

Alexey Shved and Derrick Williams for Ben McLemore and a future 7th round pick

Throw in cousins and our first and I'd consider it

He also had a couple of sick setups for his teammates. He had a great drive which attracted three defenders and kicked it out ot IT for a wide open 3. Seriously, I want to see Marcus Thornton on the bench the rest of the year and Jimmer and Ben Mac get ALL of those minutes. Why the hell not?
Nice win. Unfortunately all I saw was the collapse in the 2nd quarter then had to head out. Boogie is beasting. Good to hear the FO is being aggressive. Both Shumpert and Williams are intriguing. Just hoping we don't have to give up IT to shake up the roster.
