Sacramento Kings News – 2013 Kings Basketball Updates
11/12/13 - The Sacramento Kings are 1-5 on the season, losing every game since their season opening win over the Nuggets. First-year coach Mike Malone endeavors for more effort from a lot of his players who he feels are "guys [that] just care about themselves on this team.” As a result, he will be making some major changes in the lineup before Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Kings are on a long home stretch for the majority of November, with plenty of chances to utilize home court advantage and put some numbers in the win column. An exciting upcoming game will commence Friday Nov 15, when the Pistons visit the Kings for a frontcourt face off between DeMarcus Cousins and Greg Monroe. At this point, Sacramento is desperate to avoid breaking the franchise record for worst start of a season: 1-7 in the early 90s. Cheer on the team at Sleep Train Arena and help rally the season!
9/6/13 - After the sale of the Kings to Northern California businessman Vivek Ranadive, the team will officially be staying in Sacramento. With new ownership and front office personnel, the Kings look to rebuild under first-year coach Mike Malone. Replacing longtime Kings point guard and former #1 pick Tyreke Evans is promising rookie and former Kansas Jayhawk Ben McLemore. Evans makes his first return to Sacramento as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans
3/8/13 - Perhaps the most talked about topic for the Sacramento Kings this year is their potential move to Seattle. Come mid-April fans should have a better idea of whether or not they'll need to clear their calendars for the 2013-2014 season at Sleep Train Arena. As the Kings finish up regular season play, their focus may be more on the NBA Draft than the NBA Playoffs. With Isaiah Thomas, Tyreke Evans, and DeMarcus Cousins, the franchise has some young talent to build on and they will look to do so in the lottery this year.
