Report: Kings interested in free agent Matt Bonner

9 Comments

Matt Bonner has played for the Spurs for the past nine seasons, and San Antonio has been the league’s model of perfection for about twice as long.

Might he consider going to a team that’s been consistently mired in dysfunction?

Marc Stein of ESPN:

Another interesting free agent name to draw interest in recent days from Sacramento: Matt Bonner

Bonner is a high-IQ big man that can space the floor with his shooting from three-point distance. He may still have a spot in San Antonio, but it would be for very little money due to the team being up against it from a salary cap perspective.

Bonner could pursue other opportunities on the open market, but it’s difficult seeing him choosing Sacramento. The Kings are a directionless mess at the moment, thanks to an impatient owner who is unable to make sound decisions, or stick with any type of plan that could set the franchise up for any measure of long-term success.

More than one player has taken less money to play elsewhere this summer rather than signing up to play in Sacramento. It wouldn’t at all be a surprise to see Bonner do the same.
