  • Kings got plenty of talent in draft-day dealing, Divac says

    Sacramento Kings general manager Vlade Divac said following the NBA draft on Thursday, June 23, 2016, that in addition to building for the future, the Kings brought in plenty of new talent, getting four players over two rounds of picks instead of two. The moves included trading hometown product Marquese Chriss and shooting guard Marco Belinelli but netted Georgios Papagiannis, Malachi Richardson, Skal Labissiere and Isaiah Cousins. The Kings also received Bogdan Bogdanovic in the Chriss deal.

About This Blog


Andy Furillo has been a reporter with The Sacramento Bee since 1991. He covered mostly crime and punishment until April 2015, when he began writing a sports column. He believes art inspires in many forms: a Jerry Garcia guitar solo, Van Gogh's "Starry Night," and Madison Bumgarner's five innings of masterpiece relief in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. Sport is art, and sport is fun, and it is filled with interesting people. Furillo hopes to bring out the best of it all. Contact Andy Furillo at afurillo@sacbee.com or 916-321-1141.
