The Kings finished the 2021-22 season with an overall record of 30-52. That record put them out of playoff contention. The team failed to improve over their 2020-21 record and a shakeup of personnel followed the final game of the season. Head Coach Mike Brown will be joined by assistant head coach Jordi Fernandez. Assistant coaches Jay Triano, Luke Loucks, Doug Christie, and Landro Barbosa will be on the bench for the new season. Deividas Dulkys was picked as a player development coach.
The Kings offered Quinn Cook a one-year contract for the upcoming season. Cook spent the 2020-21 season at Cleveland, and just last year he was playing for the Stockton Kings.
Kings 2015-2019 Player Roster and Team History
In free agency, the team acquired Dewayne Dedmon and they inked a three-year deal worth 40 million for Dedmon. Dedmon is known for solid play on many levels. Trevor Ariza and Richaun Holmes signed on, providing great bench support. Will the team make the NBA playoffs this season? They are very close to making that happen.
The Sacramento Kings have been a turbulent franchise for several years. Before finally getting a new arena deal, the franchise was under serious consideration for relocation. That rumor went on for several years, with the team possibly moving to Seattle. Then there was the whole ugly separation with former franchise player DaMarcus Cousins last season. But now, Cousins is gone, and they have an arena deal. Maybe now they can get back to business and calm things down.
Looking at their roster, what do they have to start with? Well, before this draft, not a whole lot. But they did have two lottery picks in this draft, which they used to grab a couple of franchise building blocks. First, they took point guard De’Aaron Fox 5th overall from Kentucky. Second, they took the center, Zach Collins, from Gonzaga 10th overall. It is a good start, but the Kings have a lot of work to do if they want to get back up into the playoffs.
The Sacramento Kings are the oldest team in the NBA. The Kings organization pre-dates the NBA. The organization itself began to play back in 1923 as the Rochester Seagrams. In 1942 they changed their name to the Rochester Eber Seagrams. In 1945 they changed their name to the Rochester Royals and four years later, they joined the NBA. In 1957 they moved to Cincinnati and became the Cincinnati Royals. In 1972 they moved again and became known as the Kansas City-Omaha Kings.
Three years later they dropped the Omaha part of the name and in 1985 they moved to Sacramento. The Kings have had some great players over the years such as Nate Archibald and Oscar Robertson, the only man in NBA history to average a triple-double for an entire season. However, the Kings have not had a lot of success. They won the NBA title once, way back in 1951 when they were in Rochester. They have also won their division just three times- 1979, 2002, and 2003. During the early 2000's they did enjoy some moderate success with Doug Christie, Chris Webber, and Mike Bibby on the team, but they never won an NBA championship.
Recently the Kings have tried several attempts to rebuild but nothing has helped. They have also had some serious head cases on the roster recently, such as DeMarcus Cousins, who may very well be the NBA's biggest head case at the moment. Recently the Kings did hire George Karl to be their head coach, so let's see if he can point them in the right direction.
In 2017-2018, the Sacramento Kings suffered through a rather difficult season, finishing 27-55. This is a team in need of a complete makeover. As is the case with every NBA team, the King's first order of business this offseason was the draft. They held the second selection overall in the 2019 NBA draft and used it on freshman power forward Marvin Bagley from Duke. Bagley will provide that skilled power-forward presence next to emerging young center Willie Cauley-Stein. On July 17th the Kings traded center Deyonta Davis and guard Garrett Temple to the Memphis Grizzlies for shooting guard Ben McLemore, who the Kings drafted 7th overall in 2013, and traded away just one year ago. In free agency, the Kings then added point guard Yogi Farrell and power forward Nemanja Bjelica. It is safe to say as of this moment, the Kings have one of the most promising young rosters in the league. Besides Bagley and Cauley-Stein, there is shooting guard Buddy Hield who has become their top scorer. Then there is their point guard and floor leader, De’Aaron Fox. The Kings are off to a much better start this season. Aside from a current four-game losing streak, they are sitting right on the fringe of the NBA playoffs and could break out at any moment.
The Sacramento Kings have a young roster that is getting better, and they began to get better a season ago. Thanks to a very complicated trade from several years ago, the Kings did not have a first-round draft choice this year. They didn’t do anything in free agency either, so it looks like they plan to just ride their roster as is. Former Oklahoma All-American shooting guard Buddy Hield is their best player, averaging 20.3 points per game so far this season. Former Kentucky standout point guard De’Aaron Fox is averaging 19.2 points per game and 7.3 assists per game so far this season. The veteran Harrison Barnes, who has played and started every game so far this season, is averaging 15.4 points per game. Shooting guard Bodan Bogdanovic has been great off the bench this season, averaging 14.5 points per game. This is a young roster that is getting better, and time will tell if they can take this franchise back to the playoffs.
