Mark Jones hired as new play-by-play announcer

Read on Twitter


Pretty awesome hire, I would not have expected to get such a big name. He and Doug Christie should be really good together.

Completely leaving Grant and the entire situation around his dismissal, that is a pretty good hiring

Surprised Mark didn’t have other opportunities and I wonder if they are giving him a radio gig too

I like Jones as a play by play guy, but I will admit that sometimes he can seem a bit bland. But he definitely has a personality on twitter, so I hope he gets to show more of his personality on the air with the Kings.

Kings get a big win here.

Younger/ fresher voice who has ties to Doug Christie and a nice Sacramento story where he met his wife.

Nabbing an ESPN national broadcaster is the biggest FA pick up since ? ..... Lol

TBH I'm still butt hurt they cancelled Grant (who now has a podcast), but I do like this hire always liked this guy on ESPN.
