Do the Sacramento Kings need another point guard?
Collison is likely to serve a suspension in the early stages of the season due to being convicted of a domestic violence charge. Cousins was drafted by Sacramento just a couple months ago, which means there is uncertainty whether he will be ready to play against NBA competition.
With everything being factored in, do the Kings need to add another point guard before the season begins? A Royal Pain continues its series of analyzing facilitators that could be potential fits.

Andre Miller may not be the sexiest of names, but the 17-year veteran has proven that he can still be an asset for NBA teams.
The word fundamental characterizes Miller’s game. He is not going to wow anyone with his athleticism or shoot the lights out in the gym, but the guy is smart and a sound decision-maker which are great attributes when looking at point guards.
In his career, Miller has averaged 12.5 points, 6.5 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game. In the 30-game tenure that he spent with Kings in 2015, he averaged 5.7 points and 4.7 assists per contest while playing 20.7 minutes per game.
So Kings fans, what are thoughts on the possibility of the Kings signing Andre Miller to their team? To express your thoughts on the issue, feel free to comment on our Twitter account, Facebook page, or website.
If the Kings were to sign Andre Miller, it would be a solid low-key signing. Despite being 40 years of age, Miller still can play and be a positive contributor for his team.
Of course, Miller is not going to play a pivotal role for his team. He won’t be efficient if he is forced to play 25+ minutes per game, but I think he can give a team a solid 10 to 15 minutes when called upon.
Not only can Miller make a positive impact on the court, but he can also be a mentor as well. By watching Miller practice and compete, a young player like Isaiah Cousins (and others) can only benefit from his presence. He is a prime example of how point guards should orchestrate an offense.
Bottom line, there is a reason why Andre Miller keeps getting work in the NBA. His mastery of fundamentals, his volume of NBA experience, and his well-wired brain have kept his game remaining effective, even at the age of 40.
If the Kings were to sign Miller, it would be a solid signing from the organization.
