A few reminders for this time of year

There are lies, damned lies, and draft rumors. Just days after the lottery we’re already seeing rumors swirl. The Kings will be involved in a ton of the rumors because of their high draft pick and their history of not always being the smartest front office.

When looking at these rumors, the first thing you should always ask yourself is “who benefits from this information being public?”

Teams don’t tell a reporter information out of the kindness of their hearts. Think about who a rumor benefits and you can begin to understand why the information may be out there.

The other critical detail is who is reporting the information. Some reporters will share anything they’re told with no additional verification. These are the reporters you ignore until someone more reliable reports the same thing. As a matter of principle we here at Sactown Royalty won’t even address rumors from certain reporters or outlets. They’re simply too unreliable. If you see us completely ignoring what seems like it would be a bombshell piece of information, rest assured that we’re aware of it.

It’s going to be a long month, but its all going to be worth it. Hang in there.
