Grantland: The Rudy Gay Dilemma, The Sacramento Kings a (Much) Longer Shot

16

Sacramento could build a number of offers around Francisco Garcia (a useful three-and-D guy on an expiring deal) and Tyreke Evans, though Evans’s lingering knee issues — he’s getting a second opinion this week — might torpedo any such talks before they start. Evans can’t shoot at all, but he’s a young wing player with an exciting skill set (if you squint hard enough) that Memphis could sell as proof of their trying to stay in contention. The Kings could also toss in Aaron Brooks as an extra ball handler, and take back Wroten and Ellington to get Memphis under the tax line. Unfortunately, Evans is hurt, the Kings are dysfunctional, and the Grizzlies might look at Evans’s spotty record and demand another first-rounder as sweetener. The Kings already owe Cleveland a first-rounder that might not actually get to the Cavs until 2017 (thanks, J.J. Hickson!), meaning the Kings can’t really promise a future first-rounder until 2019.

Petrie best bet for Blazers GM

22

The man the Trail Blazers need to hire to run their basketball operations has sat in the chair before. That’s Geoff Petrie, Sacramento’s senior vice president/operations the past 17 seasons. There’s no need for Allen’s senior management group to take its time naming Cho’s successor. The best candidate is 580 miles down the road in northern California.
