the conference in almost a decade. This season likely won’t be any different. The Kings let sign-and-traded Tyreke Evans for Grievis Vasquez, a second round pick, and another second round pick consideration, signed Carl Landry, drafted Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum, traded two second round picks for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, and hired Mike Malone this off-season.

The Kings seem to be going in the right direction, but a lot of it depends on how players like DeMarcus Cousins adjust their attitude. This Kings team is going to be terrible on defense, but the offense shouldn’t be horrible with Cousins, McLemore, Landry, Marcus Thornton, and Isaiah Thomas. The Kings have set themselves up better for the future than the present.
