As we head into the weekend, there is some news regarding the Sacramento Kings that may have gone unnoticed.
Terence Davis will not return to Sacramento
While it was already highly expected that guard Terence Davis’ time in Sacramento was over, the Kings officially renounced Davis’ rights Friday, according to Keith Smith. TD averaged 6.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1 assist per game during the 2022-23 NBA season, appearing in 64 games.
Sacramento seems to have parted ways with Davis after their drafting of guard Colby Jones, who looked comfortable during the Califonia Classic, signing EuroLeague MVP Sasha Vezenkov, and acquiring Pacers guard Chris Duarte. These deals, as well as the two-way contract of Keon Ellis and strong summer league performances from Jordan Ford, leave Terence Davis without a spot on the Sacramento roster.
Davis was loved by many fans and certainly had potential, but the Kings have decided to take a different direction. Kings fans wish the best of luck to Davis as he searches for a new team and looks to make a career for himself in the NBA.
Bol Bol – Should the Kings target him?
After the Orlando Magic waived Bol Bol Tuesday, he was placed on the league’s waivers. This created a 48-hour window where teams could claim Bol, with the lowest win percentage team to claim him granted his rights. After no team claimed Bol during the 48-hour period, he will become an unrestricted free agent.
With Bol Bol being free to choose his next team, should the Sacramento Kings target him with their remaining cap space? Many NBA fans seem to want Bol to play for their team next – though Magic fans aren’t very fond of him.
Bol is only 23 and 7-foot-2, and while he has struggled to find his footing, you can see the flashes of star potential. With the right coaching, he can absolutely break out and be a huge impact on any team. The Sacramento Kings should take a hard look at this one – because at the very least, the rim protection Bol offers can greatly benefit the Kings’ defense, which ranked 24th last season.
NBA Summer League continues Friday
The Kings continue their NBA summer league Friday after sweeping the California Classic under Keegan Murray’s domination. The Kings will take on the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 PM Pacific in Las Vegas. Murray, who has since been forced into summer league retirement, is still traveling with the team and mentoring players in practices. He has since been replaced on the Kings’ summer league roster by Jaren Lewis, a guard from Abilene Christian who went undrafted in 2019 and looks to impress Sacramento tonight.
