Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox said the Kings are looking for a point guard of the future in the draft.
This obviously isn't surprising news. The Kings have swung and missed on guards in the draft perhaps more than anyone since the David Kahn days in Minnesota. Fox dominated fellow lottery pick Lonzo Ball during the year, and Fox is probably isn't going to make it to the Kings given their No. 8 spot in the lottery and having a potential pick swap going to Philly.

The Kings are hiring Scott Perry to a high-ranking front office job, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

He will be an executive VP and work closely with general manager Vlade Divac. Perry was an assistant GM with the Magic and it sounds like he'll do most of the leg work on the GM duties, but Divac will have the final say. It would appear the Kings aren't going after Sam Hinkie after all.
Apr 21 - 3:11 PM

The Kings vs. 76ers game that was postponed on Nov. 30 due to unsafe court conditions has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 30.

The means that Sacramento will be playing eight games during their 12-game road trip in January, including four games in five nights. With the 76ers-Kings rematch coming on the seventh game of that eight-game road trip, it's definitely possible that guys like DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay take the night off.

General manager Vlade Divac said Rudy Gay has his phone number.

"He has my number," Divac said about Rudy Gay's comments. "If I do something, I will call him. Obviously, if I didn’t call him, we didn’t do anything." If you missed it, Gay said he's hasn't seen consistency from the Kings "at all" in an interview on Monday. He also said there is a lack of communication. Gay has a player option for next season, so he'll likely be an unrestricted free agent next summer. He's one of the most likely players to be traded.

The Kings have offers with multiple future first-round picks at No. 8, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Additionally, Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago reports the Kings are trying to move up to get a top-six pick. This isn't the deepest draft, so the Kings could find someone to overpay for this pick. They do need a wing and some depth at guard, so they might wait to see if their guy falls to eight.

General manager Vlade Divac is still expected to take a methodical approach in hiring a new coach, according to Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee.

There is mutual interest between the Kings and newly-available Dave Joerger. If Joerger is indeed interested, the Kings might want to pick up the pace before he signs with somewhere else. If Frank Vogel winds up with another team, Joerger would likely be the best candidate available within reason.

The Kings have officially hired Ken Catanella as their new assistant GM.

Catanella will be leaving his post as Detroit's assistant GM to join the Sacramento franchise, and Vlade Divac reportedly made the hire due to Catanella's salary cap expertise. The next hiring for Sacramento will be the new head coach, a decision that Divac would reportedly like ot have finalized sometime next week.

The Kings would reportedly like to hire their next head coach by sometime next week.

Thus far, Sam Mitchell, Vinny Del Negro and Mike Woodson have had official interviews with Sacramento, but there are sure plenty more names to be added to that list. Kevin McHale hasn't yet officially interviewed, but the Kings are high on him and he is currently believed to be a front runner for the position. As for Sacramento's front office vacancy, David Morway is reportedly no longer being considered for the opening.

The Kings won the eighth spot in the lottery on Friday.

That means there is basically zero chance they lose their pick entirely. The only way they lose their pick is if the 9-14 spots in the lottery hop occupy the top three, which basically has a 0.01421 percent chance of happening. This is also good news for the 76ers because they can pick swap with the Kings due to the Nik Stauskas deal -- the 76ers can't finish worse than fourth. The Nuggets won the ninth spot, which is good news for the Raptors because they will get the lower pick of the Knicks and Nuggets. The Bucks were 10th in the drawing today.

The Sacramento Kings are reportedly finalizing a multi-year extension with GM and vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac.

It looks like Divac will be running the show in Sacramento for at least the next handful of seasons, which could mean that head coach George Karl's time operating as the head coach could soon be coming to an end. It'll be interesting to see if Divac backs off his stance of viewing DeMarcus Cousins as an untradeable asset after another lost season in Sacramento. The Kings will also be bringing on a seasoned NBA executive, and David Morway has reportedly emerged as a leading candidate to join the front office staff.

Vlade Divac has been named the Sacramento Kings general manager.

Divac had already been serving as the team's vice president of operations and will now add the title of general manager. In addition to Divac's new role, the Kings also named Mike Bratz as assistant general manager, Roland Beech as vice president of basketball strategy, and Peja Stojakovic as director of player personnel and development.

The Kings have hired Roland Beech to be their new Head of Analytics.

The Kings parted ways with stats guru Dean Oliver back in July and the media stirred up a storm by saying VP Vlade Divac was against analytics, but this confirms that those reports were untrue and Divac will continue to choose who he wants to surround himself with in the front office.

The Kings will reportedly hire WNBA legend Nancy Lieberman as an assistant coach.

Kings VP Vlade Divac will make the offer next week, and Lieberman has reportedly said that she will accept. The Spurs' addition of Becky Hammon to their coaching staff has opened a lot of doors for women to seek larger roles in the NBA, so this is certainly an exciting announcement for Sacramento. We will let you know when the deal becomes official.

The Kings parted ways with their Head of Analytics Dean Oliver on Sunday.

There were some rumblings earlier in the day that Kings VP Vlade Divac was against analytics, but that simply isn't true and the Kings are reportedly already looking for a replacement. Oliver was brought into Sacramento when Pete D'Alessandro was still in town, so it's clear that Divac would like to pick his own front office. The Kings are reportedly looking to add Peja Stojakovic and Bobby Jackson to their front office, so we will continue to follow this story closely.
Sun, Jul 26, 2015 04:30:00 PM

Kings VP Vlade Divac said the team is looking to sign a stretch power forward and a third point guard behind Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison.

Divac is putting the finishing touches on a solid offseason and Andre Miller has already been linked to the team through multiple reports. Don't buy the hype that the Kings are clueless -- Divac navigated the media-driven attacks with tremendous savvy and now it's on George Karl to make amends with DeMarcus Cousins.
