Kings Blog and Q&A

News, observations and reader questions about the Sacramento Kings and the NBA.

Kings did well in Vegas

The Kings are done with their second annual Vegas summer league, and the team’s only bad news was second-year swingman Francisco Garcia’s bone spur that will keep him off the court for three weeks. Rookie draft pick Quincy Douby – formerly a shooting guard at Rutgers – embraced the project of grooming him to run the point, though training camp in October will truly tell if he is capable of playing the new position this season.
Third-year shooting guard Kevin Martin flourished as he should. The comeback award goes to second-year point guard Ronnie Price, who had some rough moments early but finished strong (31 points against Dallas in the finale as the Kings finished 4-1). While at Utah Valley State, Price didn’t do much distributing, as he was expected to start and finish plays on the offensive end. He is a very capable defender, but needs to improve his passing game.
Former UNLV forward Louis Amundson – who has been signed to a partially guaranteed contract and invited to camp – was the surprise of the session for the Kings. Don’t be surprised if he is joined in camp by Justin Williams, the Wyoming shot-blocker who played well, and Eugene “Pooh” Jeter, the former University of Portland point guard who showed enough to impress the Kings coaches.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
