KINGS RUMORS & GOSSIP

DeMarcus Cousins is a groovin' old man in this Chevy commercial

You've probably met "The Hoopers" and "Cliff Paul," but have you been introduced to Ima Cousins yet? On Thursday, Chase Chevrolet out of Stockton, California, posted a commercial to YouTube featuring a finance director who looks plenty like Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. The ad starts out pretty straightforward, with Ima telling you he wants to save you money, but then...

Cavaliers showing trade interest in Kings’ Ben McLemore

It is not enough that the Cleveland Cavaliers are 38-14 and leading the Eastern Conference after the first half of the season. They recognize the need for more help to contend for a championship.

Heat interested in Kings’ 3-point specialist Omri Casspi

At 32.3 percent, the Miami Heat have the third-worst 3-point field goal percentage in the NBA, and therefore could use another shooter on the perimeter. One of the options Miami has reportedly explored is trading for Sacramento Kings long-range specialist Omri Casspi, per Ethan J. Skolnick of the Miami Herald. As of Wednesday, Casspi is shooting 42.2 percent from behind the arc...

George Karl’s agent rips Kings, wants broadcaster reprimanded

George Karl remains the Sacramento Kings’ head coach despite reports saying the team was weighing firing him. Having reports in the media saying a team is considering firing you cannot be easy for a coach, so it’s no surprise that Karl’s agent is taking aim at the Kings for their handling of the matter. In a comment shared by Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears, Karl’s agent Warren...

The Knicks, the Kings — two abruptly-broken things

Frank Sinatra knew about the workings and rhythms of the NBA: That’s life, that’s what all the people sayYou’re ridin’ high in April, shot down in MayBut I know I’m gonna change that tuneWhen I’m back on top, back on top in June The opening lyrics from “That’s Life,” his 1966 hit, capture the very transitory nature of NBA seasons, and the teams and coaches which...

Sacramento Kings: Cousins needs some help

The Sacramento Kings are slowly falling out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference. If you asked me earlier this year who would be the 8th seed in the West, the Utah Jazz would definitely have come to mind, but Sacramento also stood out too. They bolstered their team so much in the off-season, or so I thought. Granted, their record is 21-30, which isn’t that bad in the...

Rajon Rondo Has Apparently Given Up on Playing Defense

Turmoil is brewing in Sacramento, which is something you could say about the Kings during almost every NBA season. Rumors about head coach George Karl getting fired get louder with each passing day. The Kings record sits at 21-30, a reflection of the porous defense they play night in and night out. The Kings give up 108.9 points per game, last in the NBA, and possessions like the...

Williamson More Likely To Be Named Kings' Interim Head Coach Than Lieberman

If the Sacramento Kings decide to fire George Karl, the team could to elevate Corliss Williamson to interim head coach. Nancy Lieberman is also an assistant coach for the Kings, but she's unlikely to be named interim head coach. "I don't think I'm in limbo," Karl said. "I think I've got a heckuva challenge [against] a team that's played damn well -- probably it's best basketball...

The Sacramento Kings pre-break push

The NBA schedule and level of hardwood play is grueling, undoubtedly. The All-Star break is much deserved and necessary; however, as it nears, remaining focused for some teams is crucial and there is no exception for the Sacramento Kings. Heading into Brooklyn to start a 4-game road trip, they must remain focused and dig deep. It wasn’t long ago they were sitting in the eighth...

Route 56: It all went wrong for the Kings when Boogie danced

The race for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference is hardly a done deal. The competition will almost certainly linger into April with no clear resolution. This year’s 8 seed in the West will not be a 45- or 48-win team, as we’ve seen in past seasons. It will be a team near the .500 mark, and it’s no sure thing that the Golden State Warriors’ first-round playoff opponent...

DeMarcus Cousins ‘untouchable’ in trade talks

The Sacramento Kings are willing to pick up the phone and listen to trade talk—just don’t ask about DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins, he of 104 points over his last two outings alone, won’t be moving at this year’s NBA trade deadline, which occurs on Feb. 18. Forget for a moment his on-court dominance and understand that Cousins is a key part of the franchise’s marketing strategy...
