The Kings will suit up in updated uniforms during the 2014-15 season! Inspired by the uniforms the team wore in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the latest jersey designs havelong been a fan favorite in Sacramento and the 2014-15 kings wanted to bring it back. Home and away jerseys will sport "Kings" in an arced, silver-lined wordmark taken from the team's primary logo with a centered number on the front and back of the jersey. The rear collar on all 3 jerseys will include a gold tab featuring the Larry O/Brien Championship Trophy icon in recognition of the 1951 NBA Championship season in Rochester. The team's black jersey will remain the same. NBA.com

With a Kings logo prominent among the emblems gracing the flowing red curtains behind him, Mitch Richmond – light dancing off his diamond earrings and a black suit jacket draped over the broad shoulders that carried his teams to countless hard-fought victories – soaked in his biggest basketball moment at Friday’s Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony. “It’s finally hit me,” he said softly, shortly before stepping foot inside the majestic Springfield Symphony Hall auditorium. “I’m just glad (the Hall of Fame) didn’t overlook me, because I felt underrated my whole career. Having the opportunity now to be rewarded for all the hard work, the sweat I put in, those hours in the gym, I can say it really paid off and it was all worth it.” NBA.com

Aggrey Sam: Been on vacation since the day after the exhibition game in Vegas, but I wouldn't be surprised if Rudy Gay is an addition to Team USA. Twitter @CSNBullsInsider

Aggrey Sam: Hearing that it's a possibility. Makes sense to me. Has some KD and PG similarities. Won't be shocked if I see him practicing in Chicago. Twitter @CSNBullsInsider

Without further ado, I present 2015 Mock Draft 1.0, Summer Forecast edition. DeMarcus Cousins: I love what we’re doing. Love what we’re doing. Pete (D’Alessandro), he’s real aggressive, going after stuff, trying for players we probably have no chance at getting. One of these times we’re going to get lucky, and in the past we wouldn’t do that. Do you know how good that feels? Since Vivek (Ranadive), Pete, Michael (Malone), Mullie (Chris Mullin), Mitch (Richmond) and those guys walked through the damn door, things have been on the rise. I am totally behind it. Michael is like me; he sees everything in black and white. I love the fact Pete keeps trying stuff. I am totally behind all this. Rudy, the Collison move, thinking Omri (Casspi) can stretch the floor. And the rookie, that kid Stauskas can really play. He makes the game easy and has an impact even when he’s not scoring. I am so happy to be a part of this, of what we’re doing. Sacramento Bee
