Ryan Anderson And The Kings In A Post-Thomas Robinson World

By | 0 Comments | Feb 20, 2019

Does that mean the Kings should write him off? Is the imperfection of the fit such that it's not worth it as some attainable price?

Of course, that price matters. Anderson should probably get something toward $40 million over four years, maybe more. Is that worth it for someone who could be relegated to back-up status quite quickly, if Robinson is amazing early on as we think he'll be?

No one thinks Anderson can play small forward (except maybe Geoff Petrie). But can a frontcourt featuring Cousins, Robinson and Anderson get everyone enough time? Can the line-ups be mixed and matched enough to put together a good two-way team? The Kings are desperate to make the playoffs. If Robinson is solid as a rookie, they'd have one of the best big man rotations in the league.

He's the bottom line on an Anderson acquisition, in the unlikely event it comes to pass: he's a good player. The Kings need those, and desperately. They more desperately need a good small forward than a power forward, but a good power forward is not going to hurt so long as it doesn't prevent the acquisition of a good small forward, which it shall not because there are apparently no good small forwards to acquire. The end.
