Bogdanovic steers Serbia into EuroBasket final

Russia’s Aleksei Shved won the individual shoot-out up against Bogdan Bogdanovic on Friday, but it was the Sacramento Kings’ point guard and his Serbia team who progressed to the final of the EuroBasket thanks to an 87-79 victory in Istanbul. Of Bogdanovic’s haul, 13 points arrived in a first half that saw Serbia mount a 14-0 scoring run, doing considerable damage to Russia’s hopes. Bogdanovic and Shved were central figures right up until the close, the Serbia star notching five points in the final two minutes to afford his team some breathing space.

Zach Randolph cleared of marijuana possession charge in plea deal

Zach Randolph earned three NBA Community Assist Awards during his eight years in Memphis. Los Angeles prosecutors dropped the misdemeanor marijuana charge against Zach Randolph in exchange for the Sacramento Kings forward’s no contest plea to one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest and his commitment to 150 hours of community service, according to multiple reports. Randolph was originally charged with felony marijuana possession with intent to sell following an early August incident in which police discovered “a large crowd of people smoking, playing loud music and blocking the roadway” in L.A.’s Nickerson Gardens neighborhood.

Paul Pierce takes picture with Ray Allen, says it’s ‘time to get the band back together’

It’s a new season with a lot of new characters on a Sacramento Kings roster that looks radically different than the one we saw at the end of last season. Even with all that change, that won’t stop what should be another season filled with lots of bumps, beatings and bad play along the 82-game marathon of a season.  Still, Kings fans have reason to believe that the franchise is taking some steps in the right direction.  Having the fifth overall pick in last June’s draft, Sacramento landed the best player at that position who also fills a need in De’Aaron Fox.  The 6-foot-3 point guard out of Kentucky enters the NBA as one of its fastest players from one end of the court to the other, reminding

You don’t have to search long to find someone affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. While their family members are safe, the natural disaster destroying large portions of Texas has hit home for Sacramento Kings rookies and Houston natives, De’Aaron Fox and Justin Jackson.  “To see highways that I know both of us have drove a ton of times, to see those under water and to see houses and streets that we’ve been around growing up all the time, to see those under water, it’s pretty unbelievable,” Jackson told reporters Wednesday afternoon during a press conference at Golden 1 Center.  Fox and Jackson played AAU ball together in the Houston area. They know each other well, which has been

Shaq had a funny gaffe when he incorrectly said his own NBA team signed one of this summer’s biggest free agents

If you didn’t realize that Shaquille O’Neal is a minority owner of the Sacramento Kings, you’re forgiven — judging from the Hall of Fame center’s knowledge of the team’s roster, he’s not an especially important part of its day-to-day business. O’Neal recently spoke to a host of CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Wizards Tipoff podcast. When asked to project the Washington Wizards’ performance in the upcoming season, the big man pointed to one major challenge the team will have to overcome: the loss of free agent small forward Otto Porter Jr.

Shaquille O’Neal checks the Kings’ transactions list between songs in his DJ set at Rehab Beach Club in Las Vegas. In addition to his role as an analyst/source of comic relief on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” broadcast, Shaquille O’Neal also owns a small ownership stake in the Sacramento Kings. From a recent appearance on CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Wizards Tipoff podcast to discuss the Washington Wizards’ offseason and their chances of making noise this coming season, O’Neal made a point of noting one particular challenge Washington will face: the loss of starting small forward Otto Porter.

Kings minority owner Shaquille O’Neal thinks Otto Porter left the Wizards for Sacramento

There were conflicting reports in July about the Sacramento Kings’ interest in then-free agent Otto Porter, including a story that was later denied about the Kings exending Porter a max contract offer sheet. All of it was very confusing and apparently enough to throw off Shaquille O’Neal, an NBA legend and minority owner of the Kings. “They lost an important piece in Otto Porter.
