The Sacramento Kings have been bringing Travis Outlaw off the bench as the first wing to replace Ben McLemore, which gives Michael Malone a long lineup to go with Rudy Gay and Derrick Williams.

“What I liked about it is we became very long and athletic out there on the perimeter,” Malone said. “At some points you had Derrick (Williams), Rudy and Travis out there and all those guys can switch screens, cover for each other and they all can make a play offensively. I liked it on both ends of the floor. We’ll continue to give it a look as the season goes along.”

Marcus Thornton began the season as the starter, but his playing time has been cut.
