Kings Implement Triangle Offense, Inspired By Harlem Globetrotters Tape From 1943
The Sacramento Kings have added the triangle offense during training camp.
Keith Smart has been searching for an offense that reduces excessive dribbling and spaces the floor.
"I was looking at a video from 1943," Smart said. "The Harlem Globetrotters were playing over in Europe, and I got a chance to see – when you get beyond all the theatrics the Globetrotters did – they were technically in a situation where they were in a low-post triangle action."
The Kings will debut it in their first preseason game.
"I've been trying to give these guys some freedom to still get the ball and do your thing whenever you need to do it, but you'll have space," Smart said. "So we'll see how it goes."
