Mike Brown Calls De'Aaron Fox, Domantas Sabonis All-Star Snubs 'A Glaring Wrongdoing'

Feb 2, 2024 7:49 AM

Every year when the All-Star teams are announced in full, it's followed by a chorus of complaints about which players were snubbed. This year, a lot of that focus has been on the Sacramento Kings duo of De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis.

Kings coach Mike Brown joined the chorus to campaign for his two stars.

“It’s clear to anyone who watches the NBA and Kings basketball that De’Aaron and Domantas should have been selected for this year’s All-Star game,” Brown told Andscape. “They are playing at an unbelievably elite level, Domantas establishing historic numbers with his double-doubles and De’Aaron setting a new career mark for 3-point field goals. Every year, there are deserving players left off the team but, to me, this is truly a glaring wrongdoing.”

Not making the All-Star team is particularly impactful for Sabonis. The veteran center will miss out on a $1.3 million bonus, unless he's named as an injury replacement. Given no Western Conference All-Stars are currently dealing with long-term injuries, that seems unlikely to happen.

Mike Brown Brings Laptop To Postgame Press Conference To Show Missed Calls

Jan 15, 2024 9:17 AM

Sacramento Kings coach Mike Brown was ejected from his team's game at the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. That ejection will come with a fine, but Brown may be facing an even bigger one after his postgame tactics with the media.

Brown brought a laptop with him and went through a fairly detailed analysis or what he thought were some incorrect calls throughout the game. Brown also detailed out a couple of call he didn't display on the laptop.

What had the Kings coaches and players really upset was what they felt was a disparity in the officiating, especially in the first half. Milwaukee took 19 first-half free throws, compared to five for Sacramento.

Kings guard Malik Monk was aware of his coach's postgame venting, but was wary of saying too much himself.

"I don't want to get fined. But they miss a lot of calls with us. That's all I'm going to say," said Monk.

Kings Have Zero Interest In Discussing Keegan Murray In Trades

Jan 12, 2024 10:08 PM

The Sacramento Kings have shown zero interest in discussing Keegan Murray in trade scenarios, sources tell Zach Lowe of ESPN.

Murray is averaging 19.2 points on 53 percent shooting from the floor and 45 percent on three-pointers over the past month.

Murray is only in Year 2 of his rookie deal, giving the Kings an affordable cornerstone with considerable remaining upside. Murray is also versatile positionally with his ability to defend four positions.

The Kings selected Murray with the fourth overall pick in 2022.

Kings Pessimistic On Odds Of Re-Signing Pascal Siakam

Jan 10, 2024 12:35 PM

The Sacramento Kings have very little optimism of re-signing Pascal Siakam in the offseason should they trade for him, two sources tell Sam Amick of The Athletic.

The Kings and Toronto Raptors began ramping up discussions on a Siakam trade last week before Sacramento abruptly pulled of talks. The Kings reportedly have reservations about signing Siakam to a max contract in free agency.

Siakam will be seeking a full-term, max salary contract in free agency.

Sources also tell The Athletic that Siakam doesn't view the Kings as a good long-term fit.
