Kings still searching for winning combination
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Despite constant roster changes and rotation shuffles, the rebuilding Sacramento Kings have been remarkably consistent throughout the season.
Consistently bad, that is.
Nobody in the NBA pulled off more trades since the season started than the Kings before Thursday's deadline for non-waiver deals passed. With Sacramento (18-36) stuck at the bottom of the Western Conference and headed for an eighth straight losing season, rookie general manager Pete D'Alessandro promises there will be even more changes ahead.
The Kings enter Saturday night's home game against Boston still very much a work in progress.
With the trade deadline passed and at least some sense of stability setting in for the final 28 games, first-year coach Michael Malone said he wants to "create an identity" and give others a chance to play.
