Welcome back after a nice little break to another year of trade deadline centric Chainmail! The Kings are third in the West but teams are gaining ground while the Kings head out for a nice long road trip. Let’s review, shall we?
- Sacramento is 3.5 games behind Memphis for second place and 4 games ahead of Utah, currently in 10th! The Clippers, Warriors and Suns are all 3 games or less back of the Kings for the division title!
- The Kings have gone 2-3 since the end of their 6 game win streak.
- The Sacramento Kings bench has dropped to 17th in scoring over the last 10 games.
- While the Kings haven’t been linked to anyone in rumors so far, the current crop of candidates rumored to be on the block, (Mason Plumlee, Naz Reid, Doug McDermott, Mo Bamba and John Collins to name a few) could all provide something the Kings are lacking.
Drop those questions, drop those trades, drop those inhibitions and get to getting so Tim and Will can spend a ton of time answering only to look dumb post-deadline!
