The NBA Lottery came and went with the Kings staying true to form and not jumping up for the 19th time in 20 lottery attempts.  They did however manage to not drop either, which for Kings fans is a win.  That leaves them with the 6th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Shortly before the draft lottery, Vlade Divac went on SiriusXM NBA Radio and called DeMarcus Cousins "untradeable", chiding Coach Karl lightly for saying that no player was untradeable.  You can listen to the full audio here.

Cousins, for his part, did something no King has done since Peja Stojakovic in 2004, making the All-NBA 2nd team with the 10th highest vote total of anyone in the league.  It's a big sign of the growth Cousins had this past year that he was the only player on a losing team to make an All-NBA team.

In arena news, another lawsuit was dropped by the California Supreme Court this week, leaving only one final obstacle in the arena's way.  That obstacle is the lawsuit brought forth by Isaac Gonzales, Julian Camacho and James Cathcart (aka S.T.O.P.) alleging a secret subsidy.  That is expected to go before a judge on June 22nd.

As for the construction of the arena, that continues apace, with work on the upper bowl continuing this week.
