Well, the Kings haven’t been able to get some big name guys they were shooting for, but they did get quite a good player in Koufos. Now that they have Willie Cauley-Stein, and Cousins is still there as well, Koufos can be a great asset off the bench for the Kings. He’s a solid player on both sides of the ball that can fill in for a starter when needed and give you energy in the front court.
The only problem with this signing is the question about fitting into the system when Sacramento has said time and time again that Rudy Gay is going to be playing some power forward.
Sacramento may have gotten rid of Jason Thompson and Carl Landry along with Stauskas in the trade with the 76ers, but this Koufos signing still gives them a bit of a front court log jam if Gay is going to be playing power forward. They did add Rajon Rondo as well as Marco Belinelli, so they haven’t been stocking up on big men like the 76ers. Although, after the debacle in Dallas last season, a lot of people have questions about Rondo on this team. Especially when you have some big egos and attitudes like Rondo and Cousins, this could be very interesting for Sacramento next season.
