Who's Coming to Cowbell Kingdom?



Franchise cornerstones are brought to a team through the draft more often than not. Free-agency is what separates the boys from the men when it comes to NBA General Managers. You can count on just a few fingers the free agents who would consider moving to Sacramento based on marketability of the city and street credentials. Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony , Dirk Nowitzki, Greg Monroe nor Eric Bledsoe are getting off a plane at the Sacramento Airport. The City of Trees cannot match the big city lights and endorsement opportunities of the cities that Sacramento is competing with for free agents of that caliber, but few cities are Los Angeles, New York or Chicago. San Antonio has been consistently good since the arrival of David Robinson, but there teams are always built on good drafts and smart free-agent pickups. Rather than handcuffing themselves with the the acquisition of a key free agent they went "all-in" with so to speak financially, they take their chances of acquiring multiple talented players at low base salaries who are not in high demand because their situation did not work out at the last city for whatever reason. Danny Green, Marco Bellineli, and Patty Mills were all free-agents that no one was going to start a bidding over, but are key contributors to one of the best teams in the NBA. Role Players that start bidding wars cripple rosters.

What players do you want to see in a Kings' uniform for the 2014-15 season?
