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:
we are set with the big guys, so now we’re going to go with the small guys
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?
We’ve already talked about the biggest target, which is Ryan Anderson. They have a second target, which we’ve talked about a little bit, but I don’t think we’ve fully confirmed to people. Look, the Kings, from what I know, are targeting Courtney Lee. They love Courtney Lee.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kings shifted focus from Anderson since the draft.
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.
