DeMarcus Cousins, Chuck Hayes and Francisco Garcia all play for Sacramento.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – We're eight days from the start of the college football season, if you consider South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt the start of the college football season.
So I'm going to squeeze one quick basketball post into the rotation – and only because it features our local team, the Sacramento Kings.
NBA.com has started its team previews for the coming season. Scott Howard-Cooper wrote about the Sacramento Kings. He likes the way former Kentucky center DeMarcus Cousins finished last season. He believes he can develop into a formidable frontcourt tandem with Kansas rookie Thomas Robinson.
In fact, he used the word "all-star" in the same sentence with Cousins.
Cousins does have all-star ability. He should be the best player on that team for many years.
Former UK forward Chuck Hayes and Francisco Garcia of Louisville are also listed on the Kings' roster. So is Terrence Williams, although he is officially noted as a free agent and most NBA observers expect T-Will to be elsewhere this season.
And in another note of interest to local fans, Howard-Cooper also mentions the collapse of the Kings' arena deal in Sacramento. Look for a menu of the Sacramento Kings are headed for __________ stories.
Anybody know of another five-star facility that could use the revenue generated by more than 40 additional dates per year?
