When will the Kings be back in the Playoffs???
can anyone predict when? lets face it Demarcus is a top 15 NBA Player (when he wants to) top 25 any other night! With a talent like that i believe he just need to be coach! A COACH that will get in that a$$ like last year underwear! Tyreke has to go!!! what his position? trade jimmer cause he does not fit he probaly be out the league in 3 years. keep Marcus Thorthon as the 6th man cause he can score better that way! Kings need help seem like they need Veteran help. They need someone that has respect in this league. CAN SOMEBODY GIVE ME A WINDOW WHEN THEY BE BACK TO GLORY??? The only good news is KINGS ARE STAYING IN SAC and the best Strip clubs!
Well they will hopefully show progress soon since they have new ownership which will likely lead to new management and a different coaching staff. It's hard to say for sure when they'll be back in the playoffs but if the new ownership brings in the right people it could happen in a few seasons.
2 years? what do you think bout veteran help? who can help them on court and off beside jesus
The hard part for the Kings is they not only have to improve overall, but they have to compete in the West. This year there were two teams at .500 or higher that didn't even make the playoffs. I imagine that the West will remain like that for a while which makes it harder for a fringe team to make the playoffs. Looking at it I have to think 4 teams who didn't make it in the West (Utah, Dallas, Portland, and Minnesota) will also be really battling for the last two spots.
Right now Sacramento's biggest need from my perspective is an overhaul of the management and coaching staff which I will imagine happening. If Sacramento could bring the right kind of veteran help it could be beneficial, but not necessarily. Washington brought in Nene, Emeka Okafor, and Trevor Ariza yet their veteran presence didn't positively impact wins until John Wall was back.
The Kings absolutely need someone who can help DeMarcus Cousins mature, but that's not the easiest thing to find. I'd reach out to some NBA veteran's and hire them with their main assignment being to help DeMarcus Cousins mature on the court and I'd be sending him to a psychiatrist or a sports psychologist trying to help him through whatever emotional baggage that leads him to acting crazy.
He has a good point. Tyreke is a very talented player... but what is he going to be? A PG? A playmaking wing?
Their team/franchise is in a bad situation right now, and I don't see much changing anytime soon.
The Kings certainly need a veteran presence and do have cap space this summer but that will be limited if Tyreke Evans is resigned. The franchise does need an overhaul and I think they need to decide soon how can they get DMC's mind fixed on the game and cut out all the shenanigans which go with him. If they don't feel they can then maybe they have to look at trading him but they would maybe not get the value back.
Personally I'd look to hire someone like Ben Wallace or Patrick Ewing and give them the brief get DMC's head sorted. If I was part of the new ownership group I'd give Phil Jackson an informal call to see if he'd be interested in some sort of consultancy role and maybe look at Brian Shaw as an alternative Head Coach option. Phil Jackson dealt with Dennis Rodman so surely he could help get the best of out DMC as an informal mentor.
The team have been in the lottery top 10 for 5 seasons now and it may well need them to get a shot at Wiggins or Parker to get them back in the play offs soon. The good thing is, that new owners are in place, a new Arena should finally come so the franchise should start moving in the right direction at last.
Tyreke has a horrible attitude and I don't see that changing. When you're two major building blocks have bad attitudes, that's a recipe for disaster. I agree they need a new head coach and some veteran players in that lineup. By the time they start trying to make a push for the playoffs, Cousins will be a RFA and they may not keep him. Tyreke is a free agent now and who knows where he ends up.
