Kings attend open workout for Free Agent guard Dahntay Jones

New, comments

The Kings seem to be testing the water on players that may fit after other moves are made.

The Sacramento Kings are definitely not done making moves this offseason, as evidenced by continued looks at players that seemingly don't fit on the roster as is.

Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reported today that free agent guard Dahntay Jones held an open workout in Las Vegas today and the Kings were one of the teams that was in attendance.  Jones last played in the NBA in the 2012-13 season for the Atlanta Hawks.  Jones also spent 25 games with the Kings back in the 2007-08 season.  Jones is an athletic, defensive-minded guard who likes to attack the basket, although at 33 years old, he's lost a step on both ends of the floor.

This workout is coming after reports that the Kings are also working out Terrence Williams.  Currently Sacramento's roster is at 14 players after the signing of Eric Moreland, and will be at the maximum of 15 once the signing of Omri Casspi becomes official.

Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro spoke with Jon Santiago of Cowbell Kingdom in Vegas yesterday, and D'Alessandro had some interesting things to say.  One of the most notable quotes was in regard to a question asked by Santiago on MarShon Brooks:

We've had some conversations with his agent. We have a lot to do with our roster still in terms of balancing it and figuring things out. We'll continue to talk to them and see if something does make sense with them.

D'Alessandro also mentioned that he saw Jason Terry as a contributor on this team, and that there are no plans to buy him out of his contract.  That being said, it's hard to imagine Terry in a Kings uniform after his comments this summer about wanting to play for a contender.

It's clear that the Kings want to keep adding pieces to this team, but right now there doesn't seem to be any room without some major changes.  What those changes may be and when they may occur is still up in the air, but I'll be very surprised if this roster is the same as it is now by the time training camp comes around.
