After DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay and Ben McLemore, you’d probably recognize Darren Collison and Omri Casspi. And if you’re really good, Eric Moreland.

Beyond that? Nine of the players on this version of the Kings’ roster called places other than Sacramento home last season. From Lithuania (James Anderson) to Lexington, Ky. (Willie Cauley-Stein) to San Antonio (Marco Belinelli) to Dallas (Rajon Rondo) and beyond, the Kings assembled a team that looks nothing like last year’s debacle.
