Clock is ticking on Sacramento Kings’ season posted by Sac Kings Fan
It seems like just yesterday that the Sacramento Kings were 9-6. They were the talk of the league and for very good reasons but now they’re making headlines for the wrong reasons.
The wheels have fallen off the Kings’ bus. Michael Malone was relieved of his duties. The locker room has clearly taken a turn and persistent rumors of coaching changes, roster remakes and quirky additions have this team running on fumes.
Josh Smith signed with the Houston Rockets on Christmas Eve, George Karl is in limbo and the potential trade with the Brooklyn Nets for former All-Star point guard Deron Williams now on life support.
At 12-16, Sacramento is just one really good stretch away from being back in the conversation. But where does the team go from here? Do they reignite talks with the Nets for Williams? Should they hire George Karl and pray he has another fix hiding in his bag? Should they try for another blockbuster deal or should they just stand pat and let interim head coach Tyrone Corbin try to rescue the team from the spiraling drain?
Tyrone Corbin is a very solid coach that can at least get this team to the end of the season. The same can be said about Collison as a point guard and Thompson in the paint. But solid isn’t what the Sacramento Kings are looking for. Solid isn’t what sells tickets or gets this team out of the lottery.
Clearly there’s no plan in place. And now the ownership and front office have put themselves in a pickle. They have potentially thrown away a season, the fans are upset and a Hail Mary or two is in order.Continue reading "Clock is ticking on Sacramento Kings’ season"
