Kings who are playing for their future in Sacramento: Terence Davis
Like Edwards, Davis isn’t solidified in the rotation each and every night for the Kings. When he has been asked to play a bigger role, though, Davis has almost always answered the calling in a big way.
Davis could be looking for an increase in opportunity in addition to a pay increase this off-season. It’s possible the Kings could offer him both but if they are going to do so, they are going to need to see Davis close this season out strongly on the court.
He has shown an ability to shoot from the outside this season that wasn’t a consistent part of his game coming into this year. Offense will not be the issue for the Kings front office regarding Davis. After struggling from deep after he got to Sacramento during the season last year, Davis is shooting the ball just under 40 percent from three this year.
Where Davis could make a statement that the Kings simply have to acknowledge is on the defensive end of the court. It’s likely the Kings will be looking to improve their defense with their open cap space this offseason and that makes it vital that Davis shows elite effort and solid production on that end of the court as this season winds down.
Davis could make his case for a key role off the Kings bench next season. With Harrison Barnes potentially leaving in free agency there is the possibility for a fair amount of wing minutes to become available.
