Rather than pointing out the obvious and saying the Maloofs are cheap pieces of craptastic amphibious lowlife ****, I'll just leave them out of this. We know they are worthless. Yesterday proved it yet again. The NBA was thrilled to hear they "agree" to sell the team to Hansen because if nothing else it illustrates one thing: They will have to sell to whomever the NBA ultimately decides they think this Kings franchise should end up. That's the good news. Which, in layments terms, is that the Maloofs are more than broke enough that they have to sell no matter what. That's really good news.
Yesterday is perfect proof why.
On the other hand, there are other things to discuss here.
Tyler Honeycutt was a long term project that never really had an opportunity to pan out here. Now it will happen in Houston or somewhere else, but not in Sacramento. What were the reasons for passing on Kawhi Leonard again? Remind me. Oh, John Salmoons, Honeycutt and Jimmer. ...

HOUSTON -- Thomas Robinson is in,while Marcus Morrisand Patrick Patterson areout in Houston, as part of a reported three-way deal that also involved the Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings.
The move reunites twin brothers Marcus and Markieff Morris in Phoenix, and Marcus was swapped for Robinson, his former teammate at Kansas. Houston also sentPatterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich...
Making a deal at the trade deadline can seem like a good idea on paper, but there’s no telling what swapping players will do to ever-important team chemistry.
The Houston Rockets may be finding that out the hard way.
At 30-26, the Rockets looked pretty good with the trade deadline approaching — until a Wednesday night, six-player deal dismantled a good chunk of the squad that...

Tweet Unless they’re Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, NBA players sometimes develop bonds with their teammates. They spend a lot of time together practicing and on the road and form friendships with one another. Apparently that’s the case with the Houston Rockets, as Jeremy Lin said he didn’t feel like playing after the Rockets traded [...]
Jeremy Lin returns to New York City Friday night and — even though his Rockets will be playing the Nets in Brooklyn — the the former Madison Square Garden exile will make his appearance at Barclays Center in a foul mood — and with a healthier heart.
After receiving his first technical foul for arguing with a referee Wednesday, the former Knicks star tweeted his anger about...
HOUSTON James Harden had the audacity to act normal Wednesday night. He just came out of the shower, got dressed, gave his beard a good once over with his palm and acted like he wasn't walking away from a building he just burned to the ground.
"That's how I play," he said after Houston's 122-119 win over Oklahoma City. "If you watch, all 50 games that...

Wrong. During the Houston Rockets’ 122-119 victory over the Oklahoma [...]
