The team is struggling right now, but I don’t see any reason to panic and blow it all up. Unlike past seasons, Sacramento has a young core (aka young assets) that they can continue to try to build around. If not, plenty of other teams would love to get their hands on them and pay Sacramento a rather pretty penny in exchange.
It wasn’t too long ago that the Kings had only DeMarcus Cousins and a bunch of old C-level assets with no realistic hope for a future. Now that was a time to panic and blow it all up. And they did just that.
Today, I can’t read a Kings blog, listen to a podcast or the radio without being bombarded by all the noise coming from Kings fans. Sure, things are tough right now, but this isn’t 2017. Not even close.
The Kings have a lot of questions that need to be answered during the second half of the season, and that is what I will be focusing on. And I’m sure Vlade Divac and his staff will be too.
What I’m looking forward to finding out…
Can De’Aaron Fox rise to an All-Star level of play by the end of the season?
Can Marvin Begley and Richaun Holmes co-exist in the starting lineup?
Can Buddy Hield find his shooting touch again?
Will Bogdan Bogdanovic accept his role with the Kings and return next season?
Can Harry Giles secure his spot as the fourth big man on the team?
Is Harrison Barnes the Kings’ long-term solution at small forward?
Can Marvin Bagley stay healthy for the rest of the season?
