After Greivis Vasquez was traded to the Toronto Raptors earlier this season, he expressed displeasure with his play and suggested the Kings never felt like a fit.
It’s a sentiment he shared once again with the Sacramento Bee’s Jason Jones, suggesting he was disappointed he couldn’t show Sacramento fans his true game and wished things had gone differently.
“I’m a little upset because I couldn’t really show the fans what I could really do,” Vasquez said. “Last year, I led the league in total assists and was playing at a high level, and I wanted to do that in Sacramento.”
Vasquez, who was the centerpiece of the trade which Tyreke Evans to the New Orleans Pelicans was still recovering from an offseason ankle surgery and admits he wasn’t back to full strength.
So is his time in Sacramento all water under the bridge now? Not technically. The free agent to be wouldn’t rule out a potential return to Sacramento, as he says he enjoys both the front office and the coaching staff.
“If they consider me and I’m a restricted free agent, anything can happen.”
The Kings and Vasquez had talked about a contract extension before the mid-season trade to Toronto.
