Metu should have been starting already. Yet again, Luke takes too long to figure things out. So it’s cool that Metu went from DNP’s to starting?

Let’s do this, Kangz – win the games you’re supposed to win. Every year there’s a 2-3 week section that completely derails the season and it’s too damn early for this.

Rooting for the loss. We need them for the very outside chance that Waltdumb gets fired during this season, and for the lottery odds. I get no pleasure from meaningless wins against other crappy teams that just push us further back in the lottery.

Kings defense been terrible all game for the most part, Thunder were just missing a ton of layups early in the game. Can’t expect that to continue all night. Now with the Kings reeling, they desperately need stops but are unable to keep OKC from getting right to the rim whenever they want

Yep. Simmons is in another universe as a defender and passer than Fox is, and unlike Fox, Simmons at least has the sense to realize he can’t shoot. I’ll take the guy who isn’t gonna take 5+ 3’s a game at less than 20% while providing elite defense and better passing/court vision

It boggles the mind. Not all of this is on the shoulder of Walton. Most of this roster has to be rebooted, as well.

IF Monte really has the say here, it’s time to start acting like a GM.I figured this roster to be a 9-10 seed. Playing like this, I don’t even believe they will achieve that.

For all of you who now want to trade Fox for Simmons, the time for that was when a lot of you where ridiculing those of us suggesting it during the preseason. Now, it’s obvious that Fox isn’t anywhere near the player Simmons is. And it’s hard to see why Philly would want him.

Sincere question. Do you think there’s a better offer out there? Fox clearly ain’t a 1A but he has to get bonus point for being on the Kangz right? I would think he’d fit nice in the sixers just not on the kings

Who really cares if he’s a good fit on the sixers or not. The only thing that matters is that the 76’ers (or any other team) thinks he’d be a nice fit.

Well that was my point actually that the sixers might think he’s a good fit but way to be a dick

I just can’t see the 76ers taking on Fox’s contract. The team is playing well without Simmons, so a trade that brings them a serviceable reserve, an expiring contract and draft choices would be better. Fox’s inability to play defense is a significant problem in moving him at his cost.

I can’t either. The KIngs best hope is to trade for someone like Reddish, Pascal, Wood, or even trade Barnes and Buddy to the DUbs for Wiseman, Moody. Start building a team the right way.

I’d do most of those for fox ideally Pascal. Trading fox for a legit wing is the idea. Keep everyone else, and you have got yourself a nice team

If I’m Morey, I’m now demanding Haliburton as part of a trade for Simmons. Fox, I’d dismiss out of hand.

I don’t either, just pointing out that Haliburton makes more sense for Philly than Fox.

I would do that too. Again, Simmons is an all star. He could take pressure off Fox and elevate his game. Simmons would be fine w Fox, buddy, Holmes, Barnes.

The problem I see with that is 2 non shooters. The other problem is I don’t like fox leading this team. It’s too much the same failures every night. Fresh leadership is needed

Talent is talent. Simmons would instantly be the best player kings have had in the last 10 years. Simmons could facilitate the offense. Fox would not be the leader in that situation, he’d be robin to Simmons’ Batman.

I honestly think the only reason that trade hasn’t happened is because the 76ers don’t want to lose him.

Good point, tough to tell max contract fox he ain’t the leader though. At least not with our milquetoast organizational leadership

I’m not sure why some people in these message boards think it’s a bad idea to trade Fox or hali for a three time all star, 2 time all defensive first team player who is 25 years old. That’s a losing mentality.

I understand. It is just hard for me to accept trading away a talent like Haliburton, with an unrealized upside. He’s the kind of player you really try to keep.

I would totally agree if Simmons was 32, but he’s 25. Do we even know if he’s reached his potential yet? What if he developed a decent jump shot? His upside I think far outweighs Hali.

And really, I love haliburton. Nice guy, good energy, lots of upside. But take the emotion out of it and Simmons is better.

You know what, at this point I don’t give a fuck who they trade. Nobody is off the table as far as I’m concerned…just improve the team and especially get rid of this fucking incompetent coach.

Begrudgingly agree. Hali may never become the player Simmons is now.
