Well, I’d take this opportunity to blog about the Kings and their games, but, I’m starting to run out ways to explain another loss – so I wont. Just be aware the Kings take on Mike Bibby and the Atlanta Hawks tonight at Phillips Arena, and expect another loss. On the plus side – at least Donte Greene and Jon Brockman’s hard nosed play is getting noticed. Both will get the start tonight for the purple and black – making Omri Casspi and Brad Miller Spencer Hawes the effected parties. Speaking of Omri Casspi, he and Jesus Tyreke Evans had a great little spot on NBAtv yesterday. If you missed it, here it was:
Also of note – there has been a few rumblings about the Chicago Bulls wanting to reacquire Andres Nocioni. Local superhero and Kings beat writer Sam Amick wrote a small piece on it this morning, which is more or less speculation, but it’s worth a read. You can find that by clicking here.
The Bulls are believed to still think highly of Nocioni, and they just so happen to have a defensive-minded big man in Tyrus Thomas who they are reportedly open to trading. Thomas is owed $4.7 million this season and is a restricted free agent this summer, meaning the Kings could give him a long look before deciding whether or not to keep him.
