The Kings still are looking to gain roster flexibility by trading one or more of their power forwards and possibly dealing guard Jason Terry, who has said he would prefer not to play in Sacramento. The Kings say they have no plans to buy out Terry, who is due $5.45 million this season. Meanwhile, the Kings are trying to avoid paying the luxury tax and will continue to look for ways to shed salary to stay below the tax line of $76.829 million. Sacramento Bee

Terry said in a radio interview in Dallas that he would love to play for the Mavericks, where he was a former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and part of the 2011 NBA Champions. “I won’t rule out returning back to Dallas,” Terry said. “It’s my home and my heart,” Terry said. “I bleed blue. I’m a Maverick.” Sacramento Bee

Based on his comments, it doesn’t matter what else the Kings do short of landing a superstar that would make them title contenders. Terry wants no part of Sacramento. “I wouldn’t say it’s rebuilding, but a building process,” Terry said. “DeMarcus Cousins is a huge talent. Attitude, a little shaky. Rudy Gay, not a proven winner in this league but a tremendous talent and a guy you can build around. “They’re in transition right now. For me, at this point in my career, I want championships.” Sacramento Bee

Former Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry joined ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “The Afternoon Show with Tim Cowlishaw and Matt Mosley” on Friday and reasoned the Spurs could have made a tactical move in regard to the AC based on what the veteran point guard has seen them do in the past. “You know what, Pop [Spurs coach Gregg Popovich] has done that so many times. I don't know if it's a conspiracy, but I'm telling you, going into San Antonio is a tough place to play,” Terry said. “And I can remember very well one time where it was cold showers, there were about a thousand flies in the locker room. This year, there was a snake in the locker room. So, they're going to pull out all the stops to get into your head. “When you go to San Antonio, expect something like that. And Miami fell victim to it." ESPN.com

Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro talks about Jason Terry not joining the #SacramentoKings w/ @James_Ham A snippet from James' Sunday Musings interview with the Kings general manager: JH: You had to know that it was possible that Jason Terry wouldn't come to Sacramento when you made that deal, that there was potential that maybe he would sit out the rest of the season. Are you okay with how that played out? Pete D'Alessandro: Jason's a pro. He came right out and he sat down and we talked. His knee, frankly, had been bothering him and from our perspective, this is a time for us to get Ben (McLemore), Ray (McCallum), the young guys on the floor, as we discussed when we made the trade. As long as he is working on his end to do his rehab and get himself at 100-percent strength, and he will be because he is a pro, and we'll monitor that. I will keep in touch with him on a daily basis and honestly, he's a pleasure to deal with. Sulia

Michael Malone has not spoken veteran guard Jason Terry #SacramentoKings "I haven't spoken to Jason at all," Malone said before tonight's game against the Boston Celtics. "Pete D'Alessandro had a lot of conversations with his representation and obviously, he's back in Dallas, gonna try and rehab and get healthy and then we'll see where that takes us into next season." Also, Kings veteran Reggie Evans will be in uniform tonight. Since the trade, he's only gotten one shootaround under his belt so whether he even plays tonight remains up in question. "He is available for me to put in," Malone said. "How much he plays tonight will kind of be a game feel." Sulia
