Cousins is a combo guard at 6-foot-3, with the ability to play either point guard or shooting guard. He's an improved shooter, going 40 percent from the field and 41 percent from the three-point line as a senior at Oklahoma, but needs to improve defensively to keep up with current NBA players. If he makes the team following training camp, Cousins will be a depth option in the backcourt.
Labissiere was selected by the Suns with the 28th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. His draft rights will be traded to the
Before his college career even started, Labissiere was a consensus five-star recruit and projected to be a top pick in the 2016 draft. Now, after a year of unfulfilled expectations at Kentucky, where he lost his starting role and averaged just 6.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over 15.8 minutes, the big man falls to the end of the first round. Despite his draft-day slide, Labissiere possesses a solid skill set that consists of a consistent jump shot and a knack for blocking shots. It may be tough for him to find minutes in a Kings frontcourt that will likely feature DeMarcus Cousins and Willie Cauley-Stein entering the 2016-17 season.
Papagiannis was selected by the Suns with the 13th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. His draft rights will be traded to the
The Kings parlayed their own first-round pick at No. 8 and Marco Belinelli into three first-rounders in the draft. The first of the trio is Papagiannis, a 7-foot-2, 240-pound center who will turn 19 in July. Willing to bang bodies in the post, he predictably put up modest numbers in the Greek League in 2015-16, averaging 6.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks in 12 minutes per game. Considered a project, he'll expected to provide depth down low behind Willie Cauley-Stein if he doesn't return overseas for another season.
Butler announced Tuesday that he would exercise his $1.55 million player option for the 2016-17 season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
At this stage of his career, the 36-year-old Butler is little more than a positive veteran influence in the locker room, and the 2016-17 campaign could represent his final year in the league. Butler appeared in 17 contests with the Kings last season, averaging 3.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists across 10.4 minutes per game. With the Kings likely to continue prioritizing the development of their younger wing players over Butler, don't expect the aging small forward to see much action during the upcoming season.
Collison was charged with misdemeanor counts of domestic violence and domestic battery Friday, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.
Friday's charges stem from Collison's arrest on May 30 when he was involved in a domestic dispute. Per the Placer County Sherriff's Office, "Deputies found that the woman had visible injuries and they arrested Collison on a charge of domestic violence...He was additionally booked for two misdemeanor warrants." There is no set court date for Collison at this time, but a further update on this case figures to be made available over the coming weeks.
