It’s from the Daily News, so, proceed with caution. With that said, the Kings adoration of the former Oregon product is well known.
With Jimmer Fredette’s addition to a backcourt featuring Tyreke Evans, Sacramento doesn’t have a playmaker, but the answer might come in free agency, whenever that is. The Kings plan on making a pitch for the Suns’ Aaron Brooks, who is restricted. Phoenix made him a qualifying offer on Thursday.
Brooks would ease the blow of losing Beno Udrih, especially from outside where the current Sun has a career three-point line of 36%.
But considering the Suns point guard scenario is in a far worse situation than the Kings (once Nash departs), it’s hard to imagine the Kings grabbing Brooks without overpaying the piper considering Brooks’ restricted status.
