Even though I like our picks to always be higher, for whatever the reason I can't root against this young squad.
Now when it is pretty certain that it will be a 13-18th pick even more so.
In fact, I'd rather have lakers miss the playoffs.

I've had the same feeling. I've decided it means it's a win-win. If they make the playoffs, I can enjoy that this young upstart team did something cool. If they miss the playoffs, our pick gets better.

They're 3 games behind San Antonio right now and 3.5 behind the Clippers. Hopefully that holds.

And the best part, they're 1.5 games up on the Lakers.

The Celtics take care of business and keep the Kings at .500, 5 games behind San Antonio in the wins column. A good night.

I gotta say in spite of our obvious incentives I love watching this Kings team, they're maybe my favorite non-Celtics team to watch and I hope they win 50 and a playoff series next year.  This year gotta grudgingly root for some more stumbles though.

I absolutely agree. They’ve gone from being, well, the Sacramento Kings to a young, fast and hungry team. And they did it almost overnight. Those kids have the eye of the tiger.

Almost like dumping Cousins was addition by subtraction (and landed them Hield too of course).

I remember the grief that Vlade got for getting Hield and picks as the important pieces for Cousins. Ranadive was in love with Hield thinking he had Steph Curry upside as a shooter and scorer. Vlade and Ranadive caught all sorts of crap from around the league for that opinion on Hield.

But the trade and it's parts, in the end after a couple other trades, resulted in Hield, Harry Giles, Frank Mason and Harrison Barnes.

That turned out to be the winning side in that trade.

In hindsight, would you rather have #14 this year or #10 last year?

And with that Celtic win, the Kings are 5 games out of 8th with 15 games left.

This team won a lot more games than I thought they would and they're still on pace to win 40, something Cousins never did the entire time he was there. Very impressive. Glad it looks like we'll be getting a lottery pick, though.

Last year’s pick. SGA or Bridges would look good here, and Porter is really interesting.

But at the time of the deal, definitely the Kings pick.

So they could end up 12 if they shut guys down early to reduce injury risk. Not a lock at 14 with Magic and Wolves possibly jumping them.
Trade deadline mock team: Celtics,
Irving, Rozier, Wanna
Smart, Robinson, Dozier
Tatum, Morris, Semi
Griffin, Theis, Yab
Horford, Baynes, Williams

I think Boston is do some luck after what happened to the franchise for a couple decades. They got that #1 pick two years ago. Now it's time, with the oh so higher odds, for a little miracle to happen and for that Sacramento pick to to get lotteried straight up to a #2, #3 or #4 pick for the C's.

Nets did us a solid last night!!!

I guess Russell went nuts in the 4th.

Nets  were down 25 going into the 4th and beat the Kings on the road at the buzzer with a furious rally!!!!

If Miami and Orlando and Wolves can win a couple.....14 and 13 are in play, and maybe 12, but unlikely.

Adding Barret to the team would make me feel better about trading Smart and Tatum to get Davis.

Irving
Brown
Barrett
Horford
Davis

Hayward 6th man
Dallas
PG:Kemba/Brunson/Barea  SG:Brogdon/Snell/Broekhoff  SF: Doncic/Batum/Finley-smith  PF: White/Kleber/Dirk  C: Jordan/Powell/Sejri

Bucks
G-Hill, Bledsoe, Matthews, Snell, DiVincenzo, Connaughton, Brown F-Greek, Middleton, Illyasova, Smith, Maker, Spalding, Wood C- Lopez,
