“I talked to him about” the reports, Kerr said after the game. “It’s unfortunate. A team (New Orleans) called us and asked us, didn’t even make us an offer, just asked about Kelly. Next thing we know, it’s online. This is sort of modern NBA, modern life.
“I tell the players all the time and I told Kelly today, this is where you really earn your money. The basketball part is the easy part. Packing up your family and leaving, getting injured, getting booed, or reading your name in trade rumors, those thing are not easy. So I was really proud of Kelly. He handled it really well. “We texted this afternoon, and I told him just now how proud I was of him, because it’s not easy to play through that stuff, and he came in and had one of his best games.”
That isn’t the case with Richaun Holmes. Former general manager Vlade Divac found a diamond in the rough during the summer of 2019 and the Kings’ starting center would love nothing more than to stick around when his two-year contract expires this summer. “Absolutely,” Holmes said on a recent taping of Kings Central on NBC Sports California. “I absolutely love playing in Sacramento. Love the fans in Sacramento. Love stepping out in that arena with Sacramento across my jersey. So I would love to play here and hopefully everything works out, but Sacramento is a great place to play. They’ve embraced me with open arms and it’s somewhere I can definitely see myself playing.”
