Unrestricted free agent Eric Moreland will reportedly sign a one-year deal with Sacramento.

Moreland will add some frontcourt depth to the Kings roster, but he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues competing for reserve minutes with Willie Cauley-Stein.

Kosta Koufos said that he is looking forward to playing for George Karl in Sacramento this upcoming season.

"[Karl is] one of the best coaches in the NBA," said Koufos. "He gets the best out of his players and I'm very excited." Koufos will be challenging rookie Willie Cauley-Stein for minutes in Sacramento's frontcourt, and it’s possible he begins the 2015-16 season as a starter for the Kings. We'll be watching this position battle closely over the course of the preseason, but even as a starter, it's unlikely Koufos would offer much fantasy value to owners in standard leagues. Cauley-Stein offers much more upside, and is worth a late-round selection in deep leagues.

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.

Omri Casspi said Willie Cauley-Stein's potential is "out the roof."

"I really see him being a lockdown defender 2 through 5 or 1 through 4. Basically, he can guard every position, which means a lot in today's game." Cauley-Stein will likely be limited to playing backup behind Kosta Koufos and DeMarcus Cousins during his first year, but the Kings won't be afraid to give him a bigger role if he proves capable of earning one early.

Free agent Eric Moreland is expected to decide between contract offers from the Lakers, Kings and Pistons.

Moreland looked good at Summer League but he's unlikely to get more than a non-guaranteed invite to training camp. We'll let you know if he gains any traction in the fantasy realm.

The Kings have reportedly signed G Marshall Henderson to a training camp deal.

Marshall was suspended back in 2013 during his senior season at Ole Miss for drugs and has been known for his trash talking on and off the court -- feel free to give it a Google. He does have some range from deep, but he probably won't make the team.

Omri Casspi said that he feels the Kings can compete for a playoff spot next season, and that's why he elected to re-sign with Sacramento.

"I feel like we have a good team," said Casspi. "I felt I want to be a part of something that's growing and competing for the playoffs next year and being in the playoffs, putting ourselves in a position to win championships. And I didn't want to leave." The Kings added a lot of talent this offseason, but a playoff spot is always hard to come by when competing in the Western Conference. Casspi will be competing for reserve minutes with Caron Butler this upcoming season, so he won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

Ryan Hollins has reportedly received interest from the Kings, Wizards, and Clippers, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo.

Hollins has also been linked to the Pelicans and Mavericks, so it stands to reason that he'll hook on somewhere before training camp starts. The 30-year-old has never been a major contributor during his NBA career, however, and can be left undrafted in fantasy leagues as he'll be a bench player no matter where he lands.

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.

Rudy Gay said the most meaningless stat in the NBA is points per minute.

He scored 0.59 points per minute last season.
Aug 14 - 5:27 PM

Vince Hunter has reportedly signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Kings.

Hunter averaged 14.9 points, 9.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 block per game during his sophomore season at the University of Texas at El Paso, but he went undrafted in the 2015 draft. He does offer some depth to a rather thin Sacramento frontcourt, and it'll be interesting to see if he's able to land a spot on the 2015-16 regular-season roster.
Aug 13 - 4:48 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein said that he'll try and learn from DeMarcus Cousins during his rookie season.

"I'm just trying to be under [Cousins'] wing," Cauley-Stein said. "He's a franchise player. I'm trying to be a franchise player one day. He's got a team and I want a team eventually, so I'm just trying to get under his wing and have him show me the ropes and work with him and just build all that. He's the older brother." Cauley-Stein will likely be backing up Cousins and Kosta Koufos during his rookie year, so his fantasy value may be limited to deeper leagues as a shot blocking specialist.

DeMarcus Cousins said that his relationship with head coach George Karl is getting much better every day.

Cousins added that while the pair had some things to iron out, the situation that happened wasn't nearly as bad as it played out in the media, and it looks like both men are ready to move on. Cousins is the face of the Kings' franchise, and he should have no trouble returning to last year's averages of 24.1 points, 12.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.7 blocks per game. He'll make for a quality selection towards the end of the first-round on draft day.

Knicks president Phil Jackson said Quincy Acy is the ultimate professional in a recent interview.

While Acy didn't see huge minutes with the Knicks last year, Jackson was complimentary of his professionalism. "He's a doer with a professional attitude who always came to work, "Jackson said. "His constant effort is what made him one of our leaders by example." The 24-year-old may have a few solid games in him here and there, but he won't see enough minutes to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.

Eric Moreland will work out for the Lakers.

Moreland was recently waived by the Kings after only appearing in three games last season due to a shoulder injury, but he looked solid at summer league with averages of 6.4 points, 8.0 boards and 2.0 blocks and it's not surprising to see him generate some interest. We will let you know if he gets a training camp invite. The Lakers will also work out D.J. Kennedy, but he needs a lot to happen before making the team becomes a realistic scenario.
