Donte Greene, who is no longer with the Kings, still loves Sacramento and is going ahead with his second annual Goon Squad Classic this Friday at Consumnes River College. You'll remember that he put together the region's only quasi-NBA game during the lockout last November, and that is was a screaming good time.

Here's the list of players scheduled to play:

* Donte (duh!)
* Jason Thompson, who will have a school supply drive
* DeMarcus Cousins
* Tyreke Evans
* Isaiah Thomas
* John Wall
* Jimmer Fredette
* Tyler Honeycutt
* Darnell Jackson
* Jamal Crawford

Update: Donté just announced via Twitter that the event has been cancelled. His explanation:

Just got word from NBA leauge office, due to stipulations in the new CBA the charity game has been canceled. Any players who play without prior league approval face suspension and fines. We are saddened by this news and apologize for any inconvience this may cause. Refunds will be processed in a timely manner. To our charities we would like extend a personal apology and we will be looking for ways to fund raise in an effort to provide a donation.
