What has the gift of delighting mike brownSacramento’s new coach.

I love it “, he judges thus, in reference to the offseason of the franchise. ” I give a lot of credit to Monte McNair and Wes Wilcox for signing players who have the ability to have a big impact on what we want to do in the future. »

A more effective Fox/Sabonis duo, because better surrounded?

For Mike Brown, it is imperative that the Kings (34% of address at 3-pts in 2021/22, the 24th best in the NBA) progress in this area, in this NBA which gives pride of place to shooting.

Now couple it to the way Keegan shootin’ [Murray] and Harrison [Barnes], as well as Terence Davis who works hard, and you can say: ‘Okay, we have several players who can put the ball in the basket’. Which is extremely important, because it will allow De’Aaron Fox to have space and create for others. So it will help make the game easier for everyone, including him. »

For his part, Domantas Sabonis will also benefit from the arrivals of Keegan Murray, Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter, even if Mike Brown mainly intends to focus on defense to start. Recall that the Sacramento players had the 27th best in the league in 2021/22: 114.8 points against 100 possessions.

Now it’s my job to put these players into a system that makes sense to everyone and makes us effective on defense. As long as these players are willing to put in the effort, communicate and trust each other, we will have a system that will help them defensively. »

And if the mayonnaise takes completely, offensively and defensively, there will be a chance that the Kings will find the playoffs for the first time since… 2006.
