In fact, check this out: That return on a three-shot foul is so excessive that, on average, committing one is about as bad as committing a flagrant! The second shot on a flagrant can’t be rebounded, so the two shots on average are worth 1.53 points for the offense. The team then inbounds on a dead ball, which is the lowest efficiency initial condition for offense – yielding 1.07 points per possession last season, according to our Seth Partnow. That brings our total for the trip to 2.60 points. So a three-shot foul hands the offense 2.56 points on average … and a flagrant gives it 2.60. It’s basically the same. Yikes.
Today, the Sacramento Kings unveiled the new Nike City Edition uniforms for the 2019-20 season with a refreshed look. Blending old branding and new branding, the new City Edition uniforms feature red, baby blue, white and gray. These colors have been woven through the franchise’s history and help represent the 35 years of Kings basketball in Sacramento – continuing the Proud Past, Proud Future focus. This refreshed City Edition uniform will flip to feature red as the primary color for the first time in Kings history and still don “Sactown” across the chest – the adoring nickname given to the city by Sacramentans.
