4 Free agents who should be on the Kings’ summer wish list

It is never too early to start thinking about the offseason and the Kings’ front office has plenty of work to do.

2. Bismack Biyombo 

Neither JaVale McGee nor Alex Len have been putting together super impressive seasons for the Kings. Both will be unrestricted free agents in the summer, and it might be time to change up the big man depth a little bit. 

Bismack Biyombo could be a cheap option to bring in rebounding and rim protection. He spent most of the season in Memphis, averaging 5.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.1 blocks. On the Kings, he would lead the team in blocks and rank second in rebounds per game with those numbers.

Obviously, he wouldn’t be playing over 20 minutes a game in Sacramento—unless Domantas Sabonis were to miss some time—but he still provides everything the Kings need from a backup big. 

They don’t need a miracle worker behind Sabonis but someone who can battle on the glass, block shots, and set solid screens. Especially the rim protection is crucial. Sabonis will never be a rim protector, and there are few shot-blocking bigs he could reasonably play next to, so it has to come off the bench. Monk, a backup guard, cannot lead the Kings in blocks per game. Biyombo could be that player without costing too much.
