ESPN is doing a team needs series for the lottery teams. It measures prospects based on their level of fit, not just talent. Now I actually like Thorpe. He knows basketball. He's a funny, well read guy. But he has never liked the Kings and this article resorts to the typical memefiation of our team and some odd statements. Among them: "Kidd-Gilchrist is exactly what the Kings need, in terms of a guy who can defend and play with toughness. However, considering Evans probably has found a home at small forward, the Kings can look elsewhere for someone who can become a starter in the near future" But at worst, in Sullinger the Kings would get a younger, cheaper version of Carl Landry -- who has been one of the best scoring bigs off the bench over the past four years -- with far more size and upside. Shakes head.
