Top 5 Sacramento Kings stories of the Week

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone's future is in doubt this preseason as the Kings are still in need of some major change, but there's at least one free agent who hopes he stays in Sacramento.  Omri Casspi told Cowbell Kingdom that he loves it in Sacramento and has told his agent as much.

The Kings beat the Lakers twice this week to end the season, trumping last season's win total for the highest win total in five seasons.  They also helped make this the worst season in Lakers history in terms of winning percentage.  That's always a plus.

The Kings said goodbye to Sim Bhullar and re-signed guard David Stockton to a contract that includes an unguaranteed option next year.  This guarantees that Stockton will at the very minimum be on Sacramento's training camp roster next year and that they likely will be able to control him going back to the Reno Bighorns if he doesn't make the team.

The Kings also made waves by announcing that the new downtown hotel/condominium complex by the new arena would be run by Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.  Kimpton is a San Francisco-based boutique hotel company with over 60 locations in the United States.

Kings vets were in for a pickle on how to prank rookie Nik Stauskas since the rookie didn't have a car.  So Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins and Reggie Evans paid a little trip to his home instead.
