Kings News & Notes - May 4th

If things get any slower, I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be moving at all. It’s just a waiting game until May 18th and the NBA Draft Lotto…

Anyway, a few quick tidbits that might spark a basketball boner for you:

  • Geoff Petrie once again took off for his annual scouting trip to Europe. The Kings hold the third pick in the second round (33rd overall) and the Kings are looking overseas to fill that void, if need be. Petrie plans to attend the EuroLeague Final Four along with quick stops in Italy and a few other places before returning to Sacramento. Petrie mentioned that the trip isn’t only about this season but an attempt to keep tabs on players who they plan to follow and keep up with for multiple seasons, such as they did with current King Omri Casspi.
  • Zach Harper of Cowbell Kingdom has a nice piece on players that have come and gone during the 2009-2010 campaign, which you can find here. I know Garrett Temple will never be anything more than a role player and it was his choice to leave, but, that one still stings a bit…
  • Alex Kramers of Kingdome Come reviews past King free agent signings in this piece. The article touches on some of Petrie’s wonderful bargin purchases and some of the, well, not so sexy splurges.
  • Pookey from Evil Cowntown Inc has a wonderful post on efficiency (which gives he and I massive basketball boners) and he breaks down some similarities between the Kings and the Oklahoma City Thunder. It’s a long read, but, one that is well worth your time. I mean really, what else were you going to do today? Masturbate? Wait, don’t answer…
  • Blake Ellington over at Bleed Black & Purple breaks down and grades players contributions to the Kings this year. Here is his breakdown (an impressive one at that) of Kings super-stud Tyreke Evans.
  • Kingsflix again proves they’re the best in the business and drops this impressive mix of the Kings Top 10 Alley-Oops:
