The Sacramento Kings have been busy during the free agency period of the NBA offseason.
So far the Kings have signed four players in Arron Afflalo, Anthony Tolliver, Garrett Temple, and Matt Barnes to join their club next season. But the Kings have also cut ties with players that were on their previous roster as well.
Rajon Rondo, the Kings starting point guard last year, did not re-sign with the Kings, and instead decided to join the Chicago Bulls on a two-year contract worth around $28 million.
Another player that is now a former King is Seth Curry, who yesterday agreed to join the Dallas Mavericks on a two-year contract that is valued around $6 million.
The Kings not only lost players to other teams but also decided to waive players as well. Yesterday more news came out of the Kings organization as they announced that Caron Butler and Duje Dukan would be released by the team.
So Kings fans, considering both the additions and subtractions that the Kings have made during free agency, what are your thoughts on the front office’s performance?

When looking at the roster right now, Sacramento definitely is showing the effort to improve their team’s defense.

Last season the Kings were dead last in the league in point allowed per game, and with the additions of especially Garrett Temple and Matt Barnes, the Kings hope they will add a level of aggression and effort on the defensive end that was rarely seen last season.
Even though the Kings have made a plethora of personnel changes so far, I don’t think the franchise is done yet in trying to improve their roster.
The team is still without an established point guard and there are logjams in the shooting guard and small forward positions at the moment.
In my opinion, expect a trade to happen for the Kings. Probably for a point guard that has the capability to either start for the team or be the first-string backup off the bench.
