Rubio would have brought some buzz back to Sac and filled some seats.

yeah instead we get a bad PR guy relating to murder drive by, great move kings........ way to keep the franchise down.

So you are going to blame him for a random act of violence his cousin decided to do? You are just grasping at straws man. Looking for any reason to hate Tyreke. Hes going to be a better PG than Rubio BOOK IT.

Haven't seen Casspi play in a game or anything but he looks like he has all the tools to succeed. He's real athletic, got long arms,, can shoot, and he can pass and drive. I'm kinda excited about his potential going forward.

no not looking for a reason, i would have hated anybody picked over rubio, including blake griffon, rubio is that good, and a true point guard, something we needed.

And according to both Petrie and Westphal they felt Evans was the better player and a better fit for their team.

I liked Rubio as well but I had no problems if they felt Evans was the better player. They get paid to do what they do and IMO Petrie's track record in the draft speaks for itself. The one screw up was Quincy Douby and he was a late first round pick. Many people felt Evans was the 2nd best player in this draft and our FO felt the same way.

Rubio and Evans were 1a and 1b for me so I would have been happy with either one. Like i said in an earlier post, the fact they were both still on the board and they went with Evans shows me they got the player they most coveted. I would have always wondered how they felt if Rubio or Evans got picked before us and we had to "settle" for the other guy.
rumor is rubio does not want to play for minn and his father said he going to stay in spain if a trade not made. I know he had his heart set on kings NY or a big market team, so hopefully kings can do something to make this trade happen.
My question now is who will the Kings get to fill out the back up spots at PF and C? I'd love to see some rebounding/shotblocking added down there. I believe Chris Andersen is a FA but I'm guessing Denver wants him back. Same goes for Gortat from Orlando..other than that, not sure who we should target.

I doubt they will
