Mark Jones has been hired as the new play-by-play announcer for the Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have found their next play-by-play announcer.

The Sacramento Kings finally revealed who their play-by-play announcer will be for the 2020-21 season, and it was well worth the wait. Welcome to Sacramento, Mark Jones!

The Kings announced through a press release on Friday that veteran ESPN sportscaster Mark Jones would be taking over permanent play-by-play duties for the franchise. Kings radio broadcaster Gary Gerould carried the team through the Orlando bubble on an interim basis after long-time play-by-play announcer Grant Napear resigned following his firing from KHTK over backlash from an "All Lives Matter" tweet that sparked more troubling allegations by former Kings players.

Vivek Ranadive issued the following statement on the hiring of Mark Jones:

We are delighted to welcome Mark to the Kings family and watch him partner with Doug to form a new, dynamic broadcast team for the franchise and its proud fans,€ said Kings Owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadive. €œThroughout his impressive career, Mark has amassed a tremendous wealth of experience broadcasting some of the largest events this league has hosted. We are excited he has chosen to continue his career in Sacramento as we look towards the bright future of this organization.

The Kings also announced that Doug Christie is staying with the organization in his prior role as color analyst.

Mark Jones released a statement of his own regarding his new job in Sacramento.

"I am thrilled to join the Kings broadcast team. During my years of covering the league extensively, Sacramento has always stood among the top for its passionate and deeply loyal fan base,€ said Jones. €œI am thankful to Vivek and the organization for this incredible opportunity. My family and I are excited to move to Sacramento and become a part of the community.€

Needless to say, this is a huge win for Sacramento, and I'm excited to see Jones and Christie work together here next season. For now, you can enjoy some of Jones' best calls in a compilation below.

And you can welcome Mark Jones to Sacramento on Twitter @MarkJonesESPN.

BREAKING: Kings announce partnership with Thin Blue Line USA, change name of Golden1 Center to All Lives Arena. “Because F it,” said owner Vivek Ranadive, when asked to explain the abrupt change. Also, Grant Napear will now wear the Slamson suit and only fire the t-shirt cannon at fans with their backs turned.

glad to hear the kings have not learned their lesson and have decided to hire the wokest man in all of sports.. hopefully the organization can get mark the sensitivity training he needs so that he won’t be afraid of the fine men and women who work security at the G1C.. i look forward to solely listening to G-Man next season.

Yep.. Here are a few of his asinine tweets/RT’s from the past few days/weeks… You all might like it, but watch fans cancel their season tickets and tune out of games.. After two decades of a horrendous on-court product, many fans are begging the organization to give them a reason to cancel their tix/turn off their games. I think this could be it.

Polls don’t have an algorithm for racism.

The fact that people really voting for this racist to stay in power shows you how this country really feel behind closed doors.

Saturday at my football game I’ll tell the police officer on duty to €œprotect€ me he can just take the day off. Fr. I’d rather not have the officer shoot me because he feared for his life because of my black skin or other dumb ish. I’m not signing my own death certificate.

I bled purple, from as far back as I could remember. This team and city should unite us but ownership decided to stay woke. I’ve been mourning this death I just wish with all my heart it didn’t have to come to this. Good job KANGS

I mean, I realize we now live in a world where A TON of people don’t care if what they say has any relation to verifiable reality. But, if you’re going to make shit up at least stick to things that are subjective. Not things that easily, objectively disprovable with a 10-second Google search.

I didn’t get that first time I read it. After reading your comment, I see it now. I think kings are probably waiting for the start of season to honor him. I’d be a little disappointed if kings don’t put a banner or something lasting up for him at g1c. Met him couple of time like most of you. Such a beautiful heart and high character guy.

I had just inquired yesterday in another thread as to who my replacement would be, and there you go.
Mark Jones is stellar play by play man and much better than me. Jones and Christie should be a dandy of a duo. If you don’t like them, you don’t like NBA basketball.
The Vlade firing, the Mcnair hire and now the Jones hire, somebody turn on the sprinkler system because the Kings franchise is on fire!

Don’t love or hate Jones, but mostly I tune him out. But that probably has to do with the ESPN influence, he might be much better at PBP than I realize.

Either way, no reason to not give him a chance. He’ll either sink or swim.

Genuinely curious to know if you have other announcers that you would have preferred, that you think may have been realistic options? I don’t know many of the names out there.

I don’t know much of Jones’ work, but I guess for my rock bottom expectations of this franchise, he feels like a great get to me.

No, it’s a bit like Ryan Ruocco actually. I think he’s much better on Nets telecasts than on ESPN. Whatever narrative ESPN is trying to sell makes it harder to call the game. I think Ruocco is worse on ESPN telecasts.

I’m wondering if the same applies to Mark Jones.

I guess when I listen to him, his work doesn’t overwhelm me, and isn’t super memorable.

But he’s solid. I think he’d be great with a Doris Burke or someone we could upgrade over DC in the other seat.

For me, most announcers range from forgettable to unbearable. Exceptionally few are really worth not muting (Jerry Reynolds, John Miller, etc.). Jones, from what I’ve seen, is forgettable. Which will be a nice upgrade.

I really like Mark Jones and he seems like a solid hire. As much as I disliked Peaches…I always loved when he called a game and screamed-“If you don’t like that, you don’t like Kings Basketball!!”

I hope that Mark Jones almost becomes a little less-professional and we get some passion, fire, and excitement. I also hope he brings some Kings perspectives to his national broadcasts and talks positively about Sacramento.

Welcome to the family Mark!

Agree with the sentiment that I’d like to see him become a little less “professional/objective” that he is now calling the game for the Kings. I don’t want him shilling or anything, but a little more himself, whoever that might be.

Seems like a real quality hire. I’ve heard him call many basketball games and he did a good job as a network announcer.

My personal checklist:
1) Be competent
2) Don’t be annoying
3) Don’t be Jim Gray
4) Don’t try to finagle your way into becoming GM (oh wait that’s for assistant GMs/consultants)

Meets criteria. I approve of this hire.

I think Mark Jones is perfectly adequate and that’s better than Peach’s any day of the week in my book.

I’m four glasses of champagne in and am chronologically belting through Springsteen’s discography, but the joyous chants outside of Trump Tower (two miles away!!!) are drowning it out. I got married in July, but this might be me at my most celebratory day in years. Glad that you’re sharing the mood.

I haven’t slept well since Monday night, and this is probably the first time since then I will be sleeping like a baby.

Do you believe that the Mark Jones hire may inject some more PR positivity on a National level to the Kings? (assuming no more major or at least consistent major F ups)

In a few years, this franchise may not be constantly ridiculed, if we keep adding the right pieces (on and off the court).
