Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro talks about Jason Terry not joining the #SacramentoKings w/ @James_Ham A snippet from James' Sunday Musings interview with the Kings general manager: JH: You had to know that it was possible that Jason Terry wouldn't come to Sacramento when you made that deal, that there was potential that maybe he would sit out the rest of the season. Are you okay with how that played out? Pete D'Alessandro: Jason's a pro. He came right out and he sat down and we talked. His knee, frankly, had been bothering him and from our perspective, this is a time for us to get Ben (McLemore), Ray (McCallum), the young guys on the floor, as we discussed when we made the trade. As long as he is working on his end to do his rehab and get himself at 100-percent strength, and he will be because he is a pro, and we'll monitor that. I will keep in touch with him on a daily basis and honestly, he's a pleasure to deal with. Sulia

Michael Malone has not spoken veteran guard Jason Terry #SacramentoKings "I haven't spoken to Jason at all," Malone said before tonight's game against the Boston Celtics. "Pete D'Alessandro had a lot of conversations with his representation and obviously, he's back in Dallas, gonna try and rehab and get healthy and then we'll see where that takes us into next season." Also, Kings veteran Reggie Evans will be in uniform tonight. Since the trade, he's only gotten one shootaround under his belt so whether he even plays tonight remains up in question. "He is available for me to put in," Malone said. "How much he plays tonight will kind of be a game feel." Sulia

The Kings indicated they did not plan to buyout the remainder of Terry’s contract, which has one more season on it worth $5.45 million. Even if Terry were with the team, playing the former NBA Sixth Man of the Year would not have been a top priority. Sacramento Bee

Pete D'Alessandro on the possibility of buying out new #SacramentoKings guard Jason Terry: I asked D'Alessandro before tonight's game against the Warriors about whether he's had or will have conversations with new Kings guard Jason Terry about a buy out. "You know we haven't gone there," D'Alessandro said. "I'd like to see him in a uniform. With that said, this is the NBA. I'm not...I need to sit down with Jason and talk to him, but our plan is we brought him in to be a part of this team. And so that's what we're looking forward to." Sulia
