KANGZ gonna KANGZ.
A little more than a year after Rob Hennigan tweeted out a whiteboard filled with juicy tidbits on the Orlando Magic’s free agency and trade plans, the Kings themselves are subject to their own whiteboard mishap. Joe Pasternack, the head coach at UC Santa Barbara, tweeted a picture of his former player Gabe Vincent signing an Exhibit 10 contract with the Kings and upon first glance, nothing seems to be amiss.
Congrats to @iamgabevincent2 on signing with @SacramentoKings! Incredible competitor and even better person. Good luck! #gauchofamily pic.twitter.com/kgj4gcPojN— Joe Pasternack (@Joe_Pasternack) October 3, 2018
But wait, what’s that...
That sure looks like a list of the Kings draft board. For those that can’t quite make it out, that’s Ayton (indecipherable), Bagley, Doncic, Porter, then a dotted line, then Bamba and Bridges. No huge revelations there necessarily, although it’s interesting that the Kings didn’t seem to have Jaren Jackson Jr. in their top 6 and that Vlade hasn’t erased his whiteboard since June.
But that draft board isn’t all that’s up there.
That scribble of 29-53 seems to be a record, maybe what the Kings are hoping for this season. That’d be a two game improvement from last year.
Also Will has an interesting theory on the numbers above Vlade’s head (not sure what the dollar figures are about though)...
Oh hey look it's our draft compensation for the Jimmy Butler deal... 2019 pick and a 2024 pick with one or both being 1-12 protected. pic.twitter.com/wLUi7cNSel— Sactown Royalty's World Famous W. Griffith (@WillofThaPeople) October 3, 2018
More important than that though, is Vlade has a PHOTOSHOPPED PICTURE OF HIMSELF AS THE VLADFATHER IN HIS OFFICE.
But anyway kids, always clean your whiteboard. Wait a second, I see Bryant just posted a tweet of Greg’s workspace at the StR headquarters...
