Even DeMarcus Cousins, their franchise center, is not untouchable, according to a source with insight into Karl's thinking. "At the trade deadline, everyone was available," the person said. Including Cousins? "Every single person (on the Kings roster) was available." Although Karl does not hold a front office title, "he definitely has control" of future personnel decisions, the source said. Bleacher Report

George Karl's first power move as Sacramento Kings coach was to trade for Andre Miller, a trusted old hand from his Denver days. Expect more of the same this summer. Sources say Karl would love to acquire Ty Lawson—if the rebuilding Nuggets were to make him available—or any other members of his last Nuggets team, which won 57 games in 2012-13. Karl wants players who move the ball and push the tempo, and that could mean wild upheaval on the Kings roster. Bleacher Report

The Sacramento Kings today acquired guard Andre Miller from the Washington Wizards in exchange for guard Ramon Sessions, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro. “Adding Andre bolsters our backcourt with one of the most prolific ball distributors in the game,” said D’Alessandro. “He’ll also provide veteran leadership to the lockeroom and a wealth of experience at the point guard position. We’re excited to have him join the team. We also want to thank Ramon and wish him the best moving forward.” NBA.com

As the Sacramento Kings continue to be warned that Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic would have no interest in signing an extension with them, the team has become increasingly reluctant to pursue a trade, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Kings were not part of the list of preferred teams that Dragic’s agent, Bill Duffy, gave Suns management, but they probed the possibility of making a deal with Phoenix and trying to use the rest of the season – as well as the offer of a five-year contract – to sign Dragic after the season.

Sacramento is interested in Denver guard Arron Afflalo, but Denver's asking price of a first-round pick and a good young player is keeping the Kings at a distance, league sources said. Yahoo! Sports

His junior season at Michigan is done. And despite his injury, he'll have a decision to make once the Wolverines' 2014-15 year is over. NBA, or college. On Tuesday, Stauskas said he'd be more than willing to help his former teammate if he needs it. But his advice is simple. "Explore all your options," Stauskas said. "Talk to the right people. Make a lot of calls. Talk with your family, the people you trust most. And then just follow what's right for yourself after that. "With a guy as talented as him, there's no right or wrong decision. It's just whatever he feels is best." Booth Newspapers
