Found May 30, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
We shared a report from a few days ago that Warriors assistant Mike Malone was “a lock” to become the next Kings coach. And now that Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the same, it must be official. Golden State's Mike Malone has reached an agreement in principle on a four-year deal to coach the Sacramento Kings, sources tell Y! Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) May 31, 2013 The fourth year on the Malone deal with Sacramento is a team option, sources tell Y! Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) May 31, 2013 And here’s a kicker from Ken Berger: Kings' search for GM still underway, but no candidate would object to hiring of Malone, one of league's most highly regarded assistants. — Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) May 31, 2013 We’ve already covered much of what this should mean for the Warriors. Malone was the top assistant under Mark Jackson for the last two season. Expect to see Pete Myers elevated to that role, unless the team decides to bring in a new face this...

DeMarcus Cousins Wants To Remain With Kings

DeMarcus Cousins does not want to be traded from the Sacramento Kings, according to multiple sources. Cousins has had a tumultuous career to date, but has shown the talent to become one of the NBA's best big men.

Sacramento Kings now move forward under new leadership

The Sacramento Kings were one of the more fascinating teams to follow in the NBA this past season… and not because of anything that happened on the floor.  Mayor Kevin Johnson’s hard work paid off immensely as the franchise remains in Sac-town rather than heading north to Seattle.  The team also has new ownership and a needed fresh breath of air as the Maloof Brothers finally...

The Maloofs were looking to sell the Kings for the highest price tag they could warrant, and the...

A new era is upon us. Where do the Kings go from here with the roster?

I've been looking forward to this post for awhile. (Not really.) Where do the Kings go from here? With the news of Michael Malone being hired yesterday (or presumed to start the process of Malone being hired within the next few days), and with the news of the sale officially closing, and with the news of Vivek Ranadive purchasing the 7% stake that Chris Hansen declined to follow...

Source: Chris Wallace Emerges As Frontrunner For Kings GM Job

Chris Wallace is the frontrunner for the now vacant Sacramento Kings general manager position, according to sources close to the process. Wallace met with Vivek Ranadive this week and the interview went well enough that it stretched into a second day. Wallace is close with Jerry West, who has been counseling Ranadive on his early moves with the Kings.

Latest On Mavs' Interest In DeMarcus Cousins

In February, we wrote about DeMarcus Cousins being on the Mavs' 'Future-Type Player' wish list. A lot has changed with the Kings since then. Has anything changed in regards to the Mavs' desire for the knuckleheaded young talent? Come inside to look into what a source calls 'the two holes' ...’s List Of NBA Teams Curiously Includes Two “TBD” Slots

Three explanations for the existence of two “TBD” NBA teams on The Unlikely: Somebody at ESPN knows something we don’t — and isn’t telling. The Likely: ESPN anticipated a possible move by the Sacramento Kings, and included a line to insert Seattle between San Antonio and Toronto if and when a relocation was approved (and nobody bothered to clear the blank entry...

Wallace Wants To Add D'Alessandro To Kings' Front Office If Hired

Chris Wallace is considered the leading candidate to become the next general manager of the Sacramento Kings. If Wallace gets the position, he will want to bring Pete D'Alessandro with him to the Kings' front office. D'Alessandro is the Denver Nuggets' capologist and was previously with the Golden State Warriors. The Nuggets have already lost Masai Ujiri to the Toronto...

Kings of Deception

David Stern is all about leverage. (Credit) I’ve never been to Sacramento. I’ve never been further north in California than San Diego. I have no beef with the city; I’ve never even met anyone from it. I just know that Sacramento shouldn’t have an NBA team. If they did, they might also have an NFL or MLB team. Hell, an NHL team would suffice. There’s a reason no other...

NBA Rumor: DeMarcus Cousins wants to stay in Sacramento

Lately, Cleveland Twitter has been buzzing with trade ideas revolving around Sacramento Kings star center DeMarcus Cousins. The rampant speculation — of course with no concrete backing — has heated up even more so since the Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery for the No. 1 pick next month. But today, with the recent sale of the Kings becoming official and the team set to soon...
