Sacramento Kings Looking At Ugly Point Guard Options

With the lockout in full effect, there isn’t a whole hell of a lot to talk about. The Kings have their starting five set and while they’ll still have to deal with the Dalembert situation with the lockout ends, the most pressing need outside of Sammy D is a backup point guard.

Unfortunitly for the Kings, they’re not the only team in need and frankly – the quality out there is pretty poor. Let’s take a look at some realistic options:

Unrestricted:

  • Jazz – Earl Watson
  • Spurs – Chris Quinn
  • 76ers – Antonio Daniels
  • Knicks – Anthony Carter
  • Bucks – Earl Boykins
  • Heat – Mike Bibby
  • Pacers – T.J. Ford
  • Warriors – Acie Law
  • Mavericks – Jose Juan Barea
  • Celtics – Delonte West, Carlos Arroyo

Restricted:

  • Pistons – Rodney Stucky
  • Heat – Mario Chalmers
  • Suns – Aaron Brooks
  • Blazers – Patty Mills

As you can see, the options run pretty thin. And one could generally assume, unless there are some drastic CBA changes, that players like Stucky and Chalmers aren’t very realistic targets without significantly overpaying.

Of course, there is always the option of trades (which seem more beneficial than the majority of those listed above)…but for now, we’re looking at free agents.

Any particular guys you see on the list you’d be interested in?
