4. Chris Webber

When Chris Webber was first traded to the Sacramento Kings in 1998, he was not thrilled about it. Sacramento was a small market team that had not had much success and missed the playoffs for several years. 

Things worked out well, though, as Webber had the best years of his career in Sacramento and even got the team as far as the Western Conference finals in 2001-02. 

Over his 15 seasons in the NBA, Webber won Rookie of the Year, made five All-Star teams (including four as a King), led the league in rebounding in 1999, and was named to five All-NBA teams as a King. 

In 2021, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. As he is widely regarded as the best Kings player in the Sacramento era so far, the team retired his number four jersey. With De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis bringing winning basketball back to Sacramento, he has some competition now. 

Both still have to prove themselves in the playoffs, however. The 2001-02 Conference Finals team built around Webber, Peja Stojakovic, Vlade Divac, and Mike Bibby, is still the best one we have seen in the Sacramento era and until the new core proves itself, Webber holds the title as the best player during that time. 

Accordingly, he is fourth in franchise history in PER with a rating of 22.3.
