Sacramento Kings top five stories of the week

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings will play a home game next season in Mexico City according to the Boston Herald.  The Kings will face the Celtics sometime in November or December.  It will be the first international regular season game for the Kings since 1999, when they opened the season against Minnesota with two games in Tokyo.

Sim Bhullar made NBA history against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday by becoming the first player of Indian descent to play in an NBA game.  He also scored his first bucket in the next game against the Utah Jazz.

A report by Marc Stein indicates that Vlade Divac has emerged as the leader of Sacramento's front office.  Where this leaves current Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro is unknown, but it can't be a good sign for him that the Kings are already reportedly looking to make another front office hire to help Divac.

After a game in which he didn't collect a single rebound in 27 minutes, Derrick Williams was compared to a Coke machine by Coach George Karl.  Williams responded with 8 rebounds against the Timberwolves the following night.

DeMarcus Cousins has been nursing a sore foot and has missed the last two games because of it.  He went to see a foot specialist in Los Angeles on Wednesday to get a second opinion.  It's unclear if he will play in any of the final games of the season.
