Sacramento Kings 2019 Offseason and Team Outlook

2018-19 Record 39-43
2019-20 Record 37-45 Prediction

The Kings are in a predicament I think. They maxed out their cap to pay for Cory Joseph and Harrison Barnes, and I’m not sure those were the best decisions. Harrison Barnes is not a 1st or 2nd option on this team, and when it comes time to pay De’Aaron Fox or Buddy Hield, who I view as your two core building pieces, you will be lucky to sign even one of them.

I think Buddy Hield is going to be the most improved player on the team next year, playing out of his mind for that next contract, and may be deserving of close to a max, but won’t be able to be resigned by the Kings. My guess is they could get Bogdan Bogdanovic cheaper, and will go with him instead, but may lose him, too. Because, really it all comes down to signing De’Aaron Fox at all costs, and he is going to be getting a max in a couple of years.

Out of the four additions, I just like the Dewayne Dedmon one. They need a center. I don’t think that Richaun Holmes can possibly get that much playing time with all of the PF on the books, but someone is going to have play C minutes besides Dedmon. No one can be a big fan of Trevor Ariza, except that he is a veteran presence, but he has jumped from team to team, so what is his value for a team by now?

With Cory Joseph, why not let Yogi Ferrell take on some of that responsibility, who is only 25. Instead, they sign Joseph at $12 mil, which puts them right up to the salary cap. This is going to make it hard to sign back their own players moving forward, namely De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, that currently make less.
