Fox out for 2 weeks, this should help the tank.

I’m excited to see what Haliburton can do as a full-time PG. Unfortunately, Walton will probably screw that one by starting Wright or something stupid like that.

Something seems a bit off about the Kings not sharing word on Haliburton’s MRI by now..

Team is snake bitten, just hope it’s nothing career altering

You generally want to leave any bruising or swelling subside before having the MRI

I posted a question about that on the T and T board. I expect the usual clowns but also would like a true opinion as I see Mobley as the third core guy with Fox and Hali and I think that they should do what they need (or move future pick/s and other assets) to do to secure at least the #2 pick to get him.


I really don't, and if the Kings got the #2 pick I'd love to see them trade it to a team that views Mobley as a surefire star. Mobley's shooting is no better than Bagley's was coming out of college (probably worse considering Mobley was quite a bit older as a freshman) so I don't see him becoming some major plus as an offensive weapon, and anyone that young and skinny is going to struggle defensively for at least a couple years.

It looks like the Kings will finish a couple of games out of the last play-in spot.

Was it worth it making a push to get into the play-in game or tank for a better draft position? Kings may end up around #10.

I don't recall when Fox got injured, probably after the trade deadline? If he'd gotten injured before, maybe the Kings don't try to make a push for the play-in slots?

Kings for instance might have been able to get some assets to get out of the Barnes contract, which runs for two more years.

It definitely was not worth it especially since it looks like it's going to save Walton's job along with the later draft pick.

The frustrating thing though is that they really made the push after Fox went out. I figured we'd just tank from there, but they didn't.

So Walton is officially retained and there are hints that some of the reasons had to do with financial ones.

But I don't necessarily know who would have been better. Likely it would have been another assistant or someone who got fired in the last year or two.

Hope the Kings aren't feeling financial constraints just a couple of years after building a new arena.
