Last week at Hoopstuff I detailed possible trade scenarios for former rookie of the year, Tyreke Evans, who still has star potential, but does not fit on the Sacramento Kings. Here is the article if you missed it http://www.thehoopstuff.com/sacramento-kings-it-is-time-to-trade-tyreke-evans/. But after further examination and after the recent suspension of DeMarcus Cousins, for conduct detrimental to the team, it is clear that there is much more work to be done in order to fix the mess that is the Sacramento Kings.
Cousins and Evans were supposed to be the cornerstones of the team, but with Cousins’ immaturity and character concerns and Evans’ bad fit in their system, they are a lost franchise. Also with their refusal to give time to their last two lottery picks, Jimmer Fredette and Thomas Robinson and the ridiculous decision to bench the team’s best point guard and distributor, Isaiah Thomas, something is clearly wrong. The fact that coach Keith Smart keep playing John Salmons, Fran...
BEST OF MAXIM
We all know DeMarcus Cousins has had a challenging year with the Sacramento Kings, but give him credit for not letting his frustrations show. On Thursday, Cousins spoke with the media during practice. As you can see, he was enthusiastic, upbeat, courteous and gave extremely thorough responses. But seriously, how sick of Sacramento is this guy? Cousins missed the last two games as...
Nothing is ever easy when it comes to DeMarcus Cousins, and the Sacramento Kings are learning this first-hand.
“Boogie” Cousins was recently suspended indefinitely by the team, a suspension that only ended up lasting for one whole game. Well, now he has been reinstated. Which would lead you to believe that he would be with the team and playing in games, right? Well, not necessarily...
The club-imposed suspension that Sacramento Kings’ center DeMarcus Cousins received just before Christmas didn’t last very long. The NBA team announced on Dec. 24 that Cousins had been reinstated to the squad immediately after he apologized for his actions. He was originally banned from the team indefinitely on Dec 22 after a game with the Los Angeles Clippers the night before...
And this, my friends, is why you always stick around for the last couple minutes of that blowout. You’ve already invested some amount of your valuable time into an awful game anyway, so why not make absolutely sure you don’t happen to miss something as spectacular as the windmill slam that Thomas Robinson threw down against the Blazers last night? While it ultimately goes...
With DeMarcus Cousins continuing to get into trouble in Sacramento, the buzz is starting to grwo that the Kings might be finally ready to move the very talented, but troubled center. Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that the Celtics are "highly interested" in the 22 year old (averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds per game this year).
Front-office sources say that Boston...
Hah… see what I did there with the headline?
That’s a much fun as we’re going to have here, people, as the DeMarcus Cousins saga continues its swirl down the toilet in Sacramento.
I know a lot of you are openly lobbying for Cousins to join the C’s. And on pure talent alone, he could be a massive help. But the guy you see in the video is comes with all that talent, and...
I guess when you are a struggling team like the Sacramento Kings, “indefinitely” means “one game.”
Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was suspended indefinitely after getting into an argument with head coach Keith Smart at halftime of last Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. However, Cousins was reinstated by the Kings on Monday after just one game. He practiced with...

By now you must have digested most of the gastronomical delicacies of this time of the year. You have met your relatives, enjoyed some interesting chatting about life, work and the future in 2013. It is still possible that you have the chance to enjoy some holidays for the next days. At least that is my situation. You may be there sitting like me, with nothing more to do today than...
SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Kings used a 3-point basket at the buzzer by reserve forward James Johnson to defeat the first-place New York Knicks 106-105 Friday night at Sleep Train Arena.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Trail Blazers were riding a season-high, five-game winning streak before they lost to the Kings in Sacramento on Sunday. When the teams met again Wednesday night at the Rose Garden, the Blazers could do no wrong and the Kings could do very little right. Portland played stellar on offense, solid on defense and walked off the Rose Garden court with...
James Johnson’s three at the buzzer saved the Sacramento Kings from giving the Knicks their biggest comeback in franchise history.
