Kings To Retire Peja Stojakovic's No. 16

The Sacramento Kings will retire the No. 16 jersey of Peja Stojakovic on Dec. 16, when the Kings host the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In his eight seasons with the Kings, Stojakovic played more games for the Kings than any player during the Sacramento and had an immeasurable impact on the community both on and off the court. Stojakovic was a three-time NBA All-Star and NBA Champion

“Peja Stojakovic was instrumental in putting Sacramento on the map on a global scale,” Vivek Ranadivé said in a statement. “As one of only a select group of Serbian players in the NBA, Peja helped carve out a place for basketball players from all over the world. Recognizing his leadership will be a special moment for fans and the entire Kings organization, as well as a great reminder of the kind of success we are building in Sacramento.”

The Kings drafted Serbia-born Stojakovic in the first-round (14th overall) of the 1996 NBA Draft. In addition to leading the Kings in games played during the Sacramento-era, Stojakovic ranks first in Kings franchise history (1948-current) in three-pointers made (1,070) and attempted (2,687), and in free throw percentage (.893). He’s also ranked second on the Kings all-time scoring list with 9,498 points scored, third in field goals made (3,352) and attempted (7,269), and fifth in steals (543).

“My time in Sacramento was the best years of my career and truly some of the best years of my life,” said Stojakovic. “I am proud of what we built in Sacramento and the connection we made with the fans and the community. Kings fans are some of the best fans in the world, and it was an honor to play for them. I want to thank Vivek and the entire Kings family for welcoming me back for this celebration, and I look forward to following the exciting times ahead for the Sacramento Kings.”

Gay Upset With Fractured Jaw, Broken Tooth From 'Dirty Play' By Lithuania

Rudy Gay took an elbow to the top of his mouth in the third quarter of Team USA's win over Lithuania on Thursday.

"I've got a fracture in my jaw, a broken tooth and am going to probably need a root canal," Gay said. "The top is where I got hit. It's painful. It's uncomfortable, and it still bleeds, so I've got to continuously gargle. It is what it is, man.

"I think (the elbow) had a little bit to do with (the situation afterward)," Gay said. "It was a dirty play, man. It was a dirty play."

Gay had to receive treatment into the night before traveling to Madrid for the gold medal game.
