"Those thoughts" about whether he could physically commit to, say, three full seasons "came to my mind." He is already planning to "pull back" in 2015-16 and delegate more, once he has a chance to put a preferred staff together rather than cobbling on the run during a season. (Expect Karl to make a push for the highly respected Tim Grgurich, one of his long-time top lieutenants.) NBA.com

Kris Humphries: Going to miss my guy Andre Miller. He's one of the best basketball minds that I have ever been around. Twitter @KrisHumphries

Sam Amick: For Sacto folks, I'm told Kings have nothing doing right now. 18 minutes to go... Twitter @sam_amick

Alex Kennedy: Kings continue to dangle Nik Stauskas among others in talks. As I reported last night, they're looking for a PF (preferably a stretch four). Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA

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
