You’ll hear a lot about how the Kings turned Kevin Martin, briefly a franchise player, into Landry and then Thornton, and how horribly Sacramento president Geoff Petrie did in that sequence. That’s an easy argument to make, but remember the context. The Martin-Evans pairing didn’t appear to be working last season (though it didn’t get all that much of a chance), and the Kings used Martin to get a look at a player in Landry who was at the time a darling of NBA die-hards. (I had forgotten, by the way, that Larry Hughes was hilariously involved in the three-way New York-Sacramento-Houston trade that bought Landry to the Kings.) The Landry thing didn’t work out, and so here we are. There have been many worse series of personnel moves, and there will be more — maybe starting Wednesday."
