The team also has to decide whether to pick up the option on Jimmer Fredette’s contract for the 2014-15 season. Vasquez and Patterson are eligible for contract extensions that would begin with the 2014-15 season and could sign for as many as five years. The Kings could opt not to sign either player and make them qualifying offers after the season and make them restricted free agents. “We’re still looking at things and evaluating before making a decision,” said general manager Pete D’Alessandro. “… I think there’s some spirited conversations going on about all the guys near the deadline.” Sacramento Bee

The Kings have 14 guaranteed contracts for the upcoming season, one below the league maximum. But with Carl Landry out three to four months after surgery to repair a torn left hip flexor, the team has 13 players that figure to be ready for opening night on Oct. 30. "I'm not sure what (general manager) Pete D'Alessandro's plan for that last spot is right now, but I think 'H,' as we call him, has done a lot to showcase his abilities as to why he should be on this team," said Kings coach Michael Malone.

The plan, of course, was to be an NBA star. It is what Pete D'Alessandro, his brother Jon and all their neighborhood buddies dreamed about during those endless summer days, playing basketball on the court their father, a high school journalism teacher, had built in their backyard in Bohemia. This was the 1970s, when Julius Erving still played for the ABA Nets on Long Island and anything seemed possible. Then life, as it does, threw D'Alessandro an air ball. The Nets moved to Jersey, Dr. J was traded to the 76ers and by the end of his sophomore year in high school, D'Alessandro had failed to reach the height of 5-5. "I don't want to say I got cut by my JV team, but I read the writing on the wall," said D'Alessandro, who was named general manager of the Sacramento Kings last week and introduced at a news conference Monday. "That's when I started thinking about Plan B." Newsday
