The NBA has released its 2020-21 preseason schedule confirming when we will see the Sacramento Kings back on the court.
Sacramento will play a pair of games against two teams from the Western Conference. The Kings will travel to Portland for a pair of games against the Trail Blazers on Dec. 11 and Dec. 13. The team will finish up the preseason with back-to-back home dates against the Golden State Warriors on Dec. 15 and Dec. 17.
We won’t have to wait long to see Monte McNair’s team on the court for the first time since the general manager took over from Vlade Divac and co. during the offseason. The NBA will release the first part of the regular season schedule in the coming days.
In other news, Sacramento reportedly has interest in signing Glenn Robinson III, per Jason Jones of the Sac Bee. Robinson played for the Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers last season, averaging 11.7 points and 4.4 rebounds while shooting 39.1% from beyond the arc.
Robinson would give head coach Luke Walton another versatile wing who can play multiple positions. Jones adds that the veteran also has interest from the LA Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz.
