I just have to be honest I don’t see the improvement from the moves. It all hinges on the younger guys Fox, Heild, Bagley getting way better.


And the players we brought in will make them better.


We aren't signing guys to make a championship push. The guys we've brought in will absolutely help us make a playoff push though and that's the goal. We believe in our young guys but they're still 3-5 years away from being a real contender, it's all about bringing in vets that fit well around them to maximize their strengths and help their development. The moves have been great so far.

Ultimately, our roster hinges on Fox, Hield, and Bagley getting way better anyways, but I don't see much evidence that there won't be growth from those guys. Also, I think you're glossing over Dedmon's 3pt and FT shooting as if that's no big deal. His shot opens up a ton of space for either Bagley or Giles down low and for Fox's best attribute: driving to the hoop. Then, Dedmon can protect the rim on the other end which WCS just refused to do after he broke his hand. I understand being frustrated that these aren't names that jump off the page, but guys like Brook Lopez showed that bigs can evolve later in their career and show unexpected value.

Ariza was moved to Wizards last season after it wasn't working out with Suns

Both horrible situations not ideal for an older Ariza to thrive in.

His athleticism is on the decline but I think he can find a way to be a productive bench contributor.


But even if he can, I’d like to still be going after the sizeable FAs when you have ~27 mil and a declining cap market, or taking on cap for picks. Assets, rather than vet experience

What sizeable bench players are you referring to?

The starters are set.

I guess we will see.

And the players we brought in will make them better.

Who says we aren't still going to?

We have 17mil still and as cap space runs out and the 2nd nd 3rd tier guys start looking for the right teams we could get in on a trade for picks. But I think we'll make one more small move and save the rest for Buddy next years.

I disagree, he appeared done last year because he was on the $hittiest team in the league, so there was no motivation. The Kings should be pretty decent this upcoming season, so I think you'll see Ariza a lot more motivated than he was last year.

How good does signing Shump and paying the difference to overpay Beverly look?

You're failing to mention we now have a coach that should maximize our strengths more, and should also have better rotations.

Beverley's people have said he didn't like the role in Sac.

Can't blame Vlade for Bev not wanting to sit behind Fox.

We shall see if the Kings were a few role players away from competing. If Ariza returns to form in a bench role this could be a good signing. If not he's basically expiring.

Is it too early to point out he's a trade deadline trade chip? (If he's done)

Aminu hasn't played the 3 for about the last 3 seasons now though. He's strictly a 4 these days.

Is this confirmed? I believe Bev can still have a 25-30 min role playing behind and next to Fox.

I bet he wasn't gonna accept an nonstarting deal from a team that is shooting for a chip in the next few.
