He's expected to speak with the Nuggets, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Chris Hansen issues statement while congratulating Sacramento

1

I’d like to start out by congratulating Mayor Johnson and the fans in Sacramento for the tremendous effort they put together to keep their team. Given what our community went through in 2008, if there is any silver lining in this for Seattle it is seeing Sacramento’s dedicated fan base successfully rally to keep the Kings. This was never about Seattle fans versus Sacramento fans, and it goes unsaid that there is a mutual respect given the circumstances we have both been through.

Maloofs reportedly wanted a $500 mil starting price for sale of the Kings, back in December

"the Maloofs continue to discuss their preferred option of relocation with several cities and have let it be known in all the appropriate circles that bidding for the unlikely sale of the club should begin at an astounding $500 million." Sam Amick on December 30, 2012

"Cousins, meanwhile, is an unfair combination of size, mobility and skill. The only thing seemingly holding him back from a run of All-Star selections is his attitude and focus. If he ever figures that out, there is no doubt he will be one of the better players in the league for a long time."

A list of draftees who've worked out with the Kings

As the NBA Draft nears, I've decided to compile a list of draftees whom the Kings have or will have worked out by draft day.  This list is compiled from the list taken from NBADraft.net. Lets take...

99

Cousins had an excellent workout with the Sacramento Kings, grading out as the best shooter to visit Sacramento in the predraft process. He hit 78 percent of his shots in the workout, including a lot of pick-and-pop attempts. Favors graded out as the far better athlete, but the Kings, who have the No. 5 pick in the draft, believed Cousins was a more advanced player. He showed Sacramento officials more range than they thought he had, consistently hitting the 17-foot jumper. The Kings are considering several players, but Cousins could be difficult to pass over.

A summary of the Kings' performance vs the Bobcats over at Rufus On Fire

A quick summation of Rashad McCants's thoughts during the course of the game: Ball! Here! Now! I'm open! I made it! You didn't believe in me! Hear me roar! When they score, all it means is you can pass it to me now! Ball! Here! Now! What do you mean, "scoreboard"?

Kings Notes: Udrih enters camp with sense of security

On an interesting note at the end... "Abdur-Rahim announced his retirement last week, concluding a 12-year playing career, but not stepping away from the organization. Basketball president Geoff Petrie said he plans to add the 2000 Summer Olympian to the Kings' coaching staff or use him in another capacity."

Martin goes one-on-one to improve game

20

An in-depth, 2 page article was written by Sam Amick from the Sacramento Bee on how Martin has been improving his game over the summer. It also includes a wonderful video of Kevin during his practice sessions. "Everybody says they want to force me left, but I want them to force me left," the Kings shooting guard says with a bit of bravado inside a dank gym at the IMG Academies earlier this month. "I love going left." But the research – a sheet filled with statistics Martin hands to his personal coach, David Thorpe, on this muggy morning – shows it's not quite that simple. Martin may have gone left 62.19 percent of the time last season, but his efficiency when heading that direction was well below the rate when he headed right. He settled for the midrange jumper 63.25 percent of the time as opposed to 38.89 percent on the right side, which matters because the numbers also prove scoring at the rim is a greater certainty than burying pull-ups from any range. This is just one nuance of Martin's game, but it is the lesson of the day."

Houston's 09 First Round Pick Has Lottery Protections

3

"According to Petrie, the pick has declining lottery protections for the Rockets. Should Houston fall into the draft lottery (pick Nos. 1-14), it retains the pick next season. The protections decline from there, though specifics of the progression are not known."
