NBA Free Agency: A Bunch Of Dumb Moves…

The NBA Free Agency frenzy is in full effect, well at least for some teams it is. A few teams improved, others made moves to be great, some got worse and many more are just holding their breath praying the basketball Gods bring some luck their way. The best part, which also happens to be the most daunting is the guessing game that begun way before the season started when fans such...

What made Sacramento Fall in Love with Jason Thompson was his Heart

Lets face it, celebrities, just like regular, every day people screw up. It’s expected and often predictable before it ever happens. Whether he was inside a Wal-Mart or one of the many times he was spotted at the Arden Mall, JT never dissapointed a fan. Where the Average Joe in the bar stool croons to his pals after the nine-to-five shift saying, “If I had a tenth of that kind...

The Philadelphia 76ers missed a great opportunity, and it didn't even matter

Nothing revelatory can be said or written about how Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie is building his basketball team. It's unprecedented. It's dramatic. It's controversial. It's sad. It's inspiring. Yes. All that. Two years in, the Sixers are a gliding train with no destination or ETA, and there's a decent chance it breaks down and bursts into flames in the middle of...

Jason Thompson happy to play for his hometown team

Last week, the Philadelphia 76ers traded two overseas prospects and a future second-round pick to the Sacramento Kings for Nik Stauskas, Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, a top-10 protected first-round pick and swap rights on two other first-round picks in the future. It was, to be blunt, a complete and total fleecing. The Kings were willing to give up several key assets just to dump...

Philadelphia 76ers: Sacramento gets Hinkie’d

And once again, another team gets Hinkie’d. Sam Hinkie pulled off possibly the most lopsided trade in NBA history last week with the Sacramento Kings shipping the rights to two overseas players in exchange for Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Nik Stauskas, a future top-10 protected first round pick, and the right to swap draft picks in the first round in two other drafts.

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.

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.

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...

Yesterday, the Philadelphia 76ers acquired Nik Stauskas, Carl Landry, and Jason Thompson from the Sacramento Kings .
