It might be the dog days of the offseason, but the Sacramento Kings have generated a little bit of news this week, in part thanks to DeMarcus Cousins' return to Team USA. As such I thought I'd put together a Kings Links post in case you missed anything Kings related this week. Also, keep an eye on the website today as the 2015-16 NBA schedule is going to be released later this afternoon. Rumor has it we open at home against the Clippers.
On to the links:
