With Atlanta’s win on Monday, the Kings are the last team in the NBA with only 17 wins. It doesn’t always immediately occur to people that you look at the win column like you look at the loss column in the tank standings.
In the West, the Kings have one less win than the Mavericks, Grizzlies and Suns. Out East, Atlanta has 18 wins and the trio of Chicago, Brooklyn and Orlando has 19.
Sacramento has just one young piece to look to build around and that’s DeAaron Fox.
The Kings are basically in the market for any position other than a point guard and even if a great guard prospect becomes available, it wouldn’t be out of the question to take him and try to pair him with Fox.
But with Fox, the fans are already starting to set their sights on one of two guys: Luka Doncic and DeAndre Ayton. There’s also Mo Bamba, or Marvin Bagley, or Michael Porter Jr.
The Kings should have plenty of options when it’s their turn on the clock, though Bamba might not be the greatest fit next to Willie Cauley-Stein if they think he’s a big to build around in the future.
The final two games against Dallas will have ping-pong ball implications. So far, the two teams have split the first two meetings.
It was just ten days ago that the Mavericks beat the Kings by seven on their home floor. Dennis Smith Jr., Dallas’ only real future asset in the form of a player, scored 12 points with five rebounds, assists and turnovers.
Smith, like Fox, is left-handed, extremely athletic and the point guard of this team’s future. He is probably less so a pure point guard than Fox, though neither is Magic Johnson. Both also could be better shooters, which will make a potential backcourt mate’s shooting ability more crucial. It would be tough to win in today’s NBA with two guards on the floor at the same time who struggle, or are even just average, from three-point range.
So Dallas’ needs and Sacramento’s are similar. The Mavericks are projected to finish with the sixth pick, per FiveThirtyEight, and will be in the market for talent and ideally someone with some size who can shoot.
Meanwhile, Dirk Nowitzki’s goal of playing all 82 games in his 20th NBA season is gone after missing a game due to a sore ankle. The injury came after Nowitzki dunked for the first time all season against the Lakers but isn’t serious.
Dennis Smith Jr. doesn’t have any problems going up, nor coming down, to throw one down at this stage in his career. You can catch him in the Sprit Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday in LA.
