Sacramento Kings Rumors
Ramona Shelburne: Lakers remain interested in Cousins, but aren’t in pursuit right now. They love Russell and want to keep him. Focus is on free agency now: 9 more rumors
Jeff Goodman: Sacramento expressed interest in keeping unrestricted free agent Derrick Williams, sources told ESPN. First order for Kings: PG situation.
Jason Jones: Just got off the phone with George Karl. Didn’t go into specifics regarding he and DMC, said he wants to see DMC/Cauley-Stein play together.
The Kings, one source said, are expected to express interest in Bledsoe. While Sacramento has been buried in rumors involving center DeMarcus Cousins, a league executive said the Kings have been far more focused on improving the point guard position. The Kings started Darren Collison at the position, but would like to move him into a backup role. And if Sacramento keeps Cousins, bringing in his former Kentucky teammate and good friend surely would help to keep him happy.: 4 more rumors
As a report surfaced that the Suns were planning to re-sign restricted free agent point guard Brandon Knight, Eric Bledsoe’s path out of Phoenix became clearer — if not easier. Sporting News reported last week that the Suns had been shopping Bledsoe. But trading Bledsoe, according to league sources, will not prove to be easy for Phoenix. “There was a reason,” one general manager told SN, “that no one wanted to give him that ($70 million) contract last year. I think you still have to worry about his health. I think you worry about how coachable he is, too.”
