Beasley playing 27mpg of terrible ball is an underrated theme considering how successful Minn still has been.

But Stein suggests Barnes to be moved. That is an idea, I'm not sold on the Simmons deal being accepted by the 76ers just yet.

Message seems conflicting between Stein & Amick then.

Our depth is atrocious at the SF/PF too. It will be hard to move Barnes and have a better roster.

I really dislike schroder and it borders on blindly hating.

he will bring in a second and wont cost to move.



Cool story.


Let's please not do this. Both of you had your say on Dennis and his merits. No content posts like this add no value.

Thanks

Stupid Eric Gordon.

This summer I was the only buyer on him. And was getting him for basically nothing.

Now he's shot the ball well again and stayed healthy and yeah any number of teams should be looking to add him. I still think Cleveland should be the team.

Agreed, although apparently the focus (aside from Simmons) is on the frontcourt.

Not sure the current messages but I find Amick a very biased source when it comes to the Kings. Same as relying on certain local reporters for some other teams, where it is clear that the message looks more like a team crafted message than a true canvassing of what is happening in the league.

Stein simply making an educated guess like any fan reading the internet would make.

This fan reading the internet wonders if Stein’s news is still is still up to date. Earlier this week, I’d have completely agreed, and I still think the Kings should be sellers. Now, with injuries to Paul George and Damian Lillard, it sounds like we could have five teams tanking in the West, so maintaining that tenth spot seems highly attainable, even for the 18-27 Kings. I still think they Buddy Hield could be gone, but over the years, ownership has always seemed to try to compete, even when they should be rebuilding. I’m afraid they will make this mistake again this year and keep Barnes.

I hope I’m wrong. Kings fans have endured too much, and I hope they have a better fate.

What are distant first rounders worth? If Phoenix shopped Dario Saric and say a lottery protected 2027 1st (2028 Top 4 Protected or becomes 2028 2nd round pick), would they be looking at Kyle Anderson or Robert Covington? Better players? Worse players?

Shams reports the Mavs are going to waive WCS in favour of Marquese Chriss.

Not a big deal, though it does remove a small expiring from the Mavs' trade quiver.

Not too surprised, from what I'd heard Willie didn't plan on playing for the Mavs again.

If he's willing to come back this season I wouldn't mind him in either GS or Utah.
