Sacramento Kings

What a difference five weeks can make.
Had these rankings run in October, the Sacramento Kings surely could have held among the smallest spots. They were a mess last season, and no one had hinted at possible. Zach Randolph, who has not logged a second this year and has been traded then waived in February, paced that group with 14.5 points per match.
But the Kings are making a case for the NBA to make a Most Improved award.
Both De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield found methods to fast-forward their own development. The former is a scorer and also top-five three-point shooter. The latter is one of just 10 players averaging seven assists and 17 points. Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles’ combo is filled with promise. Bogdan Bogdanovic’s game functions like tissue. Harrison Barnes is the jumbo forward this roll needed.
The Kings have the wiggle room to buy this summer, even though they will need to wait and see if this fast improving roster is what draws on free brokers. They do get dinged for not owning their forthcoming first-round pick, but frees the franchise to generate an all-out push for the postseason.
