|2013/14 SEASON ROSTER|
|33||Luc Mbah a Moute||F||6-8||$4,588,384|
DeMarcus Cousins will be a force to reckon with if he's happy and focused ... No surprise if Cousins leads all centers in scoring this season ... He's that gifted offensively ... They acquired a point guard in Greivis Vasquez that truly cares about setting up teammates, which is something Sacramento has lacked lately ... The Vasquez-Isaiah Thomas combo is one of the best PG duos in the Western Conference ... Rookie Ben McLemore has great upside ... Ready to contribute right away? ... Feels like a new day in Sacramento with new ownership and coaching staff ... Relocation rumors will no longer be a distraction.
Talent level is average at best ... The Kings don't have a Top 10 player at any position except center ... Pretty weak squad at the forward positions, even moreso with Carl Landry's injury ... Cousins can be a devastating player when he's into it, but also a destructive force within the team with bad attitude and poor effort ... Michael Malone will have a hard job trying to change the culture of the team ... Selfishness has been a problem for quite a few years already ... Sacramento allowed 105.1 points per game last season, three more than the second worst club ... There's a lot of progress to be made in that department ... Even with an attitude change, the Kings may not have the personnel to stop the bleeding.
26 years and 206 days (opening day), 6 foot 6.53 inches, 220 lbs.

|PG: Greivis Vasquez||SG: Ben McLemore||SF: John Salmons|
|Talented playmaker with a sunny disposition. Will have an impact on the team on and off the court.||The Kings were lucky to find him at No. 7 in the draft. An athletic freak with tremendous potential.||Surprisingly still with the team after a bunch of so-so seasons in Sacto. Probably on borrowed time with the Kings.|
|PF: Jason Thompson||C: DeMarcus Cousins||Sixth: Isaiah Thomas|
|With Carl Landry sidelined, it should be a battle between Patterson and Jason Thompson for minutes at the four.||Fantastic combination of size and skills. Will be an All-Star when the light bulb turns on.||Has a pretty good body of work already, but like most small guys will have to continue to prove himself.|
