Dave Mason

A lot to discuss today including Giants, A's, NFL training camp plus Jerry Reynolds in-studio & Kings head coach Michael Malone will join us

Sean Cunningham

Back to Vegas for Team USA basketball. Camp opens tomorrow. Expecting Kings center DeMarcus Cousins to be a lock to make the team

James Ham

From @Jon Santiago this morning: Sacramento Kings guard Nik Stauskas reflects back on summer league experience shar.es/LfE90

David 'Dubi' Pick

Kings SL champ Josh Owens signs with Trento. An ex-Stanford blue-collar PF who loves to play above the rim.

Emiliano Carchia

Kings to sign Omri Casspi to a one-year deal sportando.com/en/usa/nba/129…

Jason Jones

Kings see Casspi as a 3/4 who adds some diversity to the roster in terms of skills.

Jason Jones

The Kings seriously considered putting in a waiver claim on Casspi, but gambled that he wouldn't get claimed, looks like it'll pay off.

Jason Jones

Then the Kings can pick up Acy's option ... and then figure out what to do with Jason Terry and all their power forwards.

Jason Jones

As @Marc Stein noted, this will help the Kings keep Quincy Acy instead of waiving him.

Jason Jones

Kings did not put in a waiver bid on Omri Casspi for luxury tax reasons. Can now sign him and save about 200K against cap, I'm told.

Ailene Voisin

To clarify: Casspi one-year deal with Kings expected to happen, but not finalized yet.

Ailene Voisin

Kings signed Omri Casspi to a one-year deal. They planned on grabbing him if he cleared waivers. Sac is where he started as rookie in 2009

Adi Joseph

This is another legitimate option. RT @Sean Highkin: Kings RT @Adi Joseph: Most puzzling NBA offseason: Magic, Lakers or Hawks?

Report: Omri Casspi signs with Kings after clearing waivers cbsprt.co/1plu8zr

Marc Stein

Kings drafted Casspi in first round in 2009 and will bring him back now on one-year deal that should also allow them to hang onto Quincy Acy

James Ham

From earlier today: Cowbell Kingdom Podcast Ep 155: Kings coach Michael Malone and Aaron Bruski of NBC Sports shar.es/Locbr

Marc Stein

This way Casspi can sign deal that only counts for $915,243 on Kings' cap and allows SAC to keep Quincy Acy as opposed to waiving him first

Chris Sheridan

Omri Casspi was never going to be claimed on waivers by #Kings. Sacramento is only about $800K below the luxury tax: sheridanhoops.com/2014/06/30/sac…

Marc Stein

Casspi clearing waivers actually helps Sacramento's bid to sign him. Kings can now add OC AND keep Quincy Acy without going into luxury tax

Steve Kyler

When Casspi was traded, sources close to him listed Kings, Mavericks, Knicks and Lakers as possible spots if he cleared waivers.

James Ham

Tomorrow on the @Cowbell_Kingdom podcast, Sacramento Kings head coach Michael Malone and a co-hosted segment with @Aaron Bruski

Jason Jones

One more thing: Kings' interest in Omri Casspi is not a sign they do not want Quincy Acy. Completely different games, skills.

Jason Jones

Kings love Acy, who worked hard on his game and had solid summer league and want to explore ways to keep him, improve team w/o luxury tax

Jason Jones

Deadline for Kings to make a decision on Quincy Acy has been extended to Aug. 15, giving more time to figure out ways to keep him.

Report: Sacramento Kings to place waiver claim on Omri Casspi shar.es/LaUDy via @sharethis

Kurt Helin

Pelicans waive Omri Casspi, who could be headed to Kings dlvr.it/6Ppszt

Marc Stein

Claiming Casspi off waivers would enable Kings to secure his rights without messing with free agency ... IF they are only team to claim him

Marc Stein

Omri Casspi has already publicly expressed interest in returning to Kings and word is Sacramento is planning to put in a waiver claim on him

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors will hold a portion of training camp in Vancouver, practicing on Oct 3-4, facing Kings on Oct 5. They'll open camp in TO on Sept 29

Ryan Wolstat

There you go, as mentioned this morning, Raptors have announced Vancouver/B.C. camp plans. Play @Nik Stauskas Rudy Gay and Kings Oct. 5

Jason Jones

One of the most asked questions: "What are the Kings doing?"

Jason Jones

What I learned on today's chat: Reggie Evans and Quincy Acy are your 2 fave Kings PFs

Jason Jones

The chat is now live .... sacbee.com/live ... Kings summer league, offseason and that new Common is nice...

Sam Amick

Omri Casspi is hopeful that (once waived by NO) he can re-sign w/ Kings. He could make a lot more overseas but won't give up his NBA dream.

Carlos Areneta

Thomas' addition perplexed some but @BobYoungTHI explains #Suns thinking and believes the Kings should be questioned. bit.ly/1nyOf1q

Jon Santiago

In case you're wondering, the Kings celebrated their summer title by going home to Sac last night. No champagne was popped at @MarqueeLV.
