Kevin Huerter: Kings 'Hungry To Win'

Aug 10, 2022 9:43 AM

Kevin Huerter knows the Sacramento Kings haven't had a lot of success recently, but he's ready to help turn that around. Huerter told Kings social media that the team has a lot of guys who are "hungry to win".

Huerter believes his playoff experience from his time with the Atlanta Hawks will help the Kings set a winning culture.

"It's everything. It starts with the front office, with the coaching staff, and it continues and just buys in with the players," Huerter said.

The veteran wing said he believes that adding himself, Mike Brown as the new coach and Malik Monk will help Sacramento break their playoff drought.

"It's really the first thing I heard about when I first got traded here is how long it's been since they made the playoffs and how hungry everyone is to make it," Huerter said.
