The Kings have finally embraced the rebuild

Sacramento doesn’t seem to be taking shortcuts anymore. The Kings have been “rebuilding” since I was in high school. Since then I’ve graduated from college, started a career, seen my friends get married and seen the Kings in the playoffs exactly zero times. In fact, it’s been so long since the Kings were good, we probably shouldn’t call any efforts to become good ...

Kings’ pick of De’Aaron Fox helped Sacramento fan score date with crush

Sacramento fans probably would’ve been happier with the Kings’ draft if they had taken sharpshooter Malik Monk at No. 10 — the Kings instead traded down, snagging Portland’s picks, and got Justin Jackson (No. 15) and Harry Giles (No. 20) — but all in all, the Kings had a very solid night Thursday.
