Contrary to public belief, Sam Amick of th Sacramento Bee claimed that cuts will be made before the road trip to Las Cruces, New Mexico. The Kings according to Amick, has just 11 guaranteed contracts and there is only one returning King without a guaranteed deal and that is Justin Williams.
What does this mean?
Willams is no lock to make the team but Shawes' injury may actually help Williams' case. Though I hope J-Will makes the team and my bet is that he does but its not going to be a gimme for J-Will. Even Hollinger who traditionally hates the Kings likes Justin Williams and doesn't think it's a fluke.
