Sacramento Kings

Western Pacific

Buddy Hield has agreed to a four-year, $94M extension to remain with the Kings. The contract is structured such that $86M is guaranteed and could reach a total value of $106M if Hield hits all of his incentives. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hield has steadily improved throughout his three years in the league, and his 2019 season saw him average career-highs in minutes, rebounds, shooting volume, and PPG. This deal not only prevents Hield from leaving in free agency next summer but also ensures that he will be the focal point for this team looking to make the postseason for the first time since 2006.

Fantasy Impact: Thompson will join the Kings G- League team so he's off the fantasy radar.

De'Aaron Fox clarified Monday that he's completely healthy after leaving Team USA prior to the FIBA World Cup. (Source: Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Fox leaving a USA team that had already suffered several high-profile departures came as a bit of a surprise, and he didn't specify a specific reason for his decision. The good news for Kings fans and fantasy owners is that he left Team USA on his own terms and not because of an injury.


Updating a previous report, Cory Joseph will in fact participate in the FIBA tournament. Nick Nurse, Canada's head coach, confirmed that Joseph is headed to China after recent conversations. (Source: Eurohoops)

Fantasy Impact: Joseph is likely to play a healthy dose of minutes for Team Canada. As a second-unit player for Sacramento, however, he will not see the court enough to be a realistic fantasy option.


Former Kings big man Willie Cauley-Stein will sign with the Golden State Warriors. (Source: Marcus Thompson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Cauley-Stein will sign with the Warriors and add even more front-court depth to a team that just re-signed Kevon Looney. Cauley-Stein averaged 11.9 points and a career-high 8.4 boards in just over 27 minutes per game last season for Sacramento, and he has a good shot to open next season as the Warriors’ starting center.

Trevor Ariza and the Kings agreed to terms Sunday on a two-year, $25 millions contract. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ariza will provide the Kings with a veteran presence, and add depth to both forward positions. He averaged 14.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.2 steals in 43 games for the Wizards last season.

Marvin Bagley III put in 19 points, eight rebounds, one dime and one block in 28 minutes of game action on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bagley was coming off the bench again on Tuesday but evidently it doesn't matter when he comes in the game: he's going to make an impact either way. Bagley has been impressive since returning in mid-March from an extended absence in, putting in 19.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.0 triples per game over that nine-game period.

Bogdan Bogdanovic put in 10 points, two dimes and one steal in 26 minutes of game action on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic seemed to be back in the saddle after a 24-point game a few days ago but is instead back to his inconsequential ways again. If he's not hitting threes for you, he's not worth it.

Harrison Barnes put in 10 points, five rebounds and one dime in 28 minutes of action on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Barnes has scored more than 10 points just once in his last four outings and has just one steal and zero blocks over his last five games. No one would blame you for dropping the veteran at this point.

Nemanja Bjelica put in 10 points and six rebounds in 26 minutes of game action on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Bjelica was unfortunately unable to take advantage of the vaccuum left by Marvin Bagley's absence on Sunday. Bjelica has also recorded only one defensive stat over his last three games.

Harry Giles (thigh) will not play against the Pelicans on Thursday. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Giles has now missed four straight but the Kings haven't exactly missed him as the trio of Marvin Bagley III, Willie Cauley-Stein and Nemanja Bjelica have more than made up for his absence. He may have a tough time finding playing time when he returns to the lineup.

The Sacramento Kings are going to sign Corey Brewer for the remainder of the season. He was on his second 10-day contract with the team. (Source: James Ham on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brewer has been playing well with the minutes he's been getting. His defense has been a welcome addition since the departure of Iman Shumpert. He's not worth an add, but might be worth a punt play in daily tournaments.

Alec Burks played 15 minutes and scored 4 points with one rebound in the win over the Thunder.

Fantasy Impact: Burks hasn't seen the court much since being acquired by the Kings, so he's not a fantasy option at the moment.

Ben McLemore will be waived by the Kings after the team acquired Alec Burks in a deal with the Cavaliers. (Source: Sam Amick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Alec Burks, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Buddy Hield, Yogi Ferrell, Frank Mason, and De'Aaron Fox were all ahead of McLemore so leave him on the wire.

Iman Shumpert has been traded to the Rockets in a three-team deal involving the Cavaliers, Rockets, and Kings. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shumpert could pick up some minutes off the bench and is a solid defender which is a plus for the Rockets high-scoring offense.

Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph have been traded to the Mavericks in exchange for F Harrison Barnes. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jackson will be in line for starters minutes while competing with Dorian Finney-Smith. Jackson is going to play alongside Luka Doncic so we will see how he does in fantasy.

The Mavericks agreed to take on Zach Randolph's contract while acquiring Justin Jackson as well. The Kings will receive F Harrison Barnes in this deal. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Barnes will make an immediate impact while Randolph should remain off the fantasy radar.

Frank Mason III again didn't see the court on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Mason isn't in the rotation and won't have any unless there is an injury.

Kosta Koufos didn't play against the Spurs and doesn't seem to be in the Kings rotation at the moment.

Fantasy Impact: Koufos has little to no fantasy relevance at the moment. The young guns are running the show.
