Kings’ reported top two targets in free agency: Ryan Anderson and Courtney Lee
The Kings have been rumored to want Ryan Anderson in free agency.
But after leaving the draft with Georgios Papagiannis and Skal Labissiere – to go with DeMarcus Cousins, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos already under contract – Sacramento general manager Vlade Divac declared:
Maybe Anderson, a stretch four, qualifies. He’s smaller than the bigs already on the roster, but it’ll tough to fit everyone in the rotation without a trade.
So, what about truly small guys – like Courtney Lee?
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kings shifted focus from Anderson since the draft.
Lee would be a good fit in Sacramento. He’d start at shooting guard, contributing on both ends of the floor, while Malachi Richardson and Ben McLemore (if he’s still around) develop.
But as much as the Kings need help at shooting guard, point guard should be a bigger priority.
At least there are players signed – however unready to contribute immediately – at shooting guard.
