George Karl is now tasked with making the Kings a team that has those elements on the court. Karl said today’s NBA requires teams to do so and not rely on playing in the halfcourt with set plays. “I like the game to have a rhythm,” Karl said. “I like the game to be created by five guys playing like there are six or seven. I like the game to have a fast flow, I like to be in control of the action, I like to be aggressive, intense. But basically I like that because I think that’s the way you should play. I like that because the way the game is today, if you play against set defenses you’ve got to be really, really good and that might not be good enough. So flow is important to me, playing before the defense sets.” Sacramento Bee

Alex Kennedy: It'll be interesting to see if Kings pursue Ty Lawson. Pete D'Alessandro and George Karl have history with Ty. Lawson and Karl remain close. Denver won't just give Ty Lawson away, obviously. They'll want a lot in return. But don't be surprised if Sacramento shows serious interest. Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA
