The Sacramento Kings have solid core group of young players that they can build their team around. Tyreke is going to be the face of the franchise and pretty much already is. Landry is a solid PF with a good mid range shot and very, very quick first step. Thompson is progressing slowly but he needs to work on his court vision, he rarely passes out of the post. Hawes has upside but is a little too much finesse is the key. Greene, Casspi, and Garcia are all talented of the bench.
The Kings need a true point guard to help out Tyreke in the back court. There is alot of speculation that Darren Collison might be traded from New Orleans. The Kings could get Collison for a bargain because there is no need for Darren in NO because of Chris Paul. I believe Tyreke and Darren would be a quick, paralizing back court. The Kings would have to give up a player like Hawes or Thompson; That would be fine if we could also tack on Nocioni.
**PROPOSED TRADE Kings Get: Darren Collison, 11th overall pick (posssibly Songaila because of salary;
Hornets Would probaly waive Nocioni or Udrih because of salary constrictions
So The Kings Would have the 5th, **11th, 33rd picks in the 2010 nba Draft. With the Fifth pick of the draft i want the kings to select Wes Johnson out of Syracuse. he is very, very athletic, he can shoot from beyond the arc, and can grab boards as well. he has a knack for creating his own shot, and he can get to the rim with the quickness. With the 11th pick (if the trade were to go through) we could snag Hassan Whiteside From Marshall. He is a project but if he gained 20 pounds i belive he could be solid center. he Led the NCAA in blocks last season for the Herd. he has good range on his jumper, showing the ability to shoot from the perimeter if needed to. With the 33rd i would want Terrico White, Jordan Crawford or Willie Warren. any combo guard would help the kings create mismatches just like tyreke does when he runs point.
If the Kings were to do the trade it would open $10,000,000 PLUS the huge salary we already had about 15,000,000 so the kings WOULD have 25 million dollars this offseason "Hypothetically" of course . Thats enough to offer a max contract and then some. Amar'e Stoudemire is has a player option and if the Suns Dont give him the contract he wants he will opt out, making him unrestricted free Agent. The Kings have other possibilities too, like David Lee or Boozer. If the Geoff petrie Sacked up and wanted to Spend some real money we culd possibly land Bosh. Although that is unlikley because he wants to go to a playoff team. But if Bosh came to the kings that would make them a for sure playoff team. THINK ABOUT THAT LINE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2011 Projected starters
Bench: Whiteside, Garcia, Greene, Hawes, (White,Warren,Crawford), Brockman(We would need 2 min. cash players)
And even if bosh didn't work out we could possibly get Anthony Randolph from Golden State or David Lee in Free Agency. The thing is THIS IS %100 possible. the Collison trade has to happen for this to happen as well. SO GEOFF PETRIE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TRADE FOR DARREN COLLISON
