Why Doesn’t Anyone Want to Play for the Sacramento Kings?

NEW ORLEANS, LA – MARCH 27: DeMarcus Cousins #15 of the Sacramento Kings grabs the rebound ;No; on March 27, 2015 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Last week, the Sacramento Kings traded Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, and last year’s #8 overall pick Nik Stauskas to the Philadelphia 76ers in order to free up cap space to pursue free agents. They’d offered...

Why Rajon Rondo will fit well with the Sacramento Kings

A few hours after the Sacramento Kings signed Marco Belinelli, the Kings signed Rajon Rondo. Earlier this week the Kings traded Jason Thompson, Carl Landry and Nik Stauskas to the Philadelphia 76ers as a salary dump. By doing so, the Kings were able to bring in Marco and Rondo. Rondo signed a one year deal worth $10 million. Rondo had been a very important player for the Boston...

Sacramento Kings’ Disappointing Offseason Might Only Get Worse

The Sacramento Kings have become the antithesis of a team making smart moves during free agency. From George Karl’s reported desire to trade superstar center DeMarcus Cousins, to the Kings shedding $14 million in salary with no obvious replacement plan, to extending an absurd offer to a player recovering from a torn Achilles, the franchise is a mess. But unfortunately for the...

Sacramento Kings continue to be an utter disaster

The Sacramento Kings are not having a good last few weeks. What with All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins demanding a trade, owner Vivek Ranadive publicly feuding with his head coach and vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac making an underwhelming draft pick, things haven’t been swell in Sactown. Now the team’s strategy for free agency has gone completely off the rails...

Nik Stauskas adds different dimension to Sixers offense

Day one of NBA Free Agency was amazing to the say the least as money was flying around everywhere. We saw Anthony Davis, Kevin Love, Khris Middleton, Kawhi Leonard, Draymond Green and Tristan Thompson all get huge paydays. One team that was quiet to begin free agency was the Philadelphia 76ers. No one had a clue what general manager Sam Hinkie was thinking or planning. Earlier in...

Philadelphia 76ers: Sam Hinkie strikes again with Stauskas trade

Leave it to Sam Hinkie to capitalize on another team’s misfortune. This exact scenario happened again last night. The Sixers accepted a salary dump from the Sacramento Kings in the form of Jason Thompson, Carl Landry and last years No. 8 overall pick, Nik Stauskas. These were not the only assets Hinkie acquired last night. The magician was also able to gain another future 1st...

76ers SG: Now Who ya Got?

When I woke up this morning and read the 76ers news on Twitter, I laughed…I smiled…and I cried a little (for Vlade Divac). In the over night hours, Hinkiepalooza struck again.  This time Sam fleeced the Kings of Nik Stauskas (fomer No. 8 overall pick in 2014 Draft); power forwards Carl Landry and Jason Thompson, a 2018 protected top-10 pick and the right to swap first-round...

Latest Move Brings to Light Major Issues with the Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings traded two pretty lofty contracts, their top-10 pick from last June and a future first rounder to the Philadelphia 76ers in a clear cost-cutting move on Wednesday night—a move that clears about $16 million in cap space. By sending Carl Landry, Jason Thompson and Nik Stauskas to Philadelphia for overseas players and a future second-round pick, Sacramento made...

The Stauskas Trade, Or The Sixers Actually Might Have Stopped Tanking

Hello, Actual Possible Asset Tonight, my basketball laundry finally made a trade with an eye toward making the product on the floor better in the here and now, rather than in the later and much later. By agreeing to send over some overseas assets – AKA, any name that is not Dario Saric, since he is pretty much the only overseas asset that matters – and taking on salary, they...
