Sacramento Kings Roster
- Western Pacific
- Golden 1 Center
Sacramento Kings guard Tyrese Haliburton has reportedly bulked up this offseason. The sophomore guard has added 10 pounds of muscle, which may come in handy for an 82-game regular-season grind. The former Iowa State Cyclone had a fantastic inaugural year, averaging 13 points and 5.3 assists while shooting nearly 41 percent from deep. However, a knee injury derailed the 2020 first-round pick's season, relegating him to only 58 games as a result. Nonetheless, it appears as if Haliburton is committed to improving. As long as he can remain healthy, he is a candidate to surpass his ADP in upcoming fantasy drafts for the 2021-22 campaign.
Sacramento Kings center Damian Jones is staying with the team. The club picked up Jones' option, so he is on tap for one more year in purple and black. He averaged 6.9 points, 4.5 boards, and 1.0 blocks throughout 17 games with the team. However, it's likely he won't do any better than that from a statistical standpoint this season, especially since he probably won't see the floor much moving ahead.
Sacramento Kings guard Terence Davis has agreed to a two-year deal with the organization. He averaged 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists with 1.0 steals through 27 games with the Kings last season. He'll be thrown into the Kings young guard mix of De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton, and Davion Mitchell. To be honest, Davis is probably the fourth best player in the group, so his fantasy value will be limited. He might be a deep league option or streaming choice, but won't be worth a look on draft day.
Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes and the team remain in talks for a potential return. The 27-year-old averaged a career-high 14.2 points, 8.3 boards, and 1.6 blocks in 61 games last season. He is reportedly looking for a deal in the neighborhood of around $80 million throughout four years, and he is likely to get offers from multiple franchises. Nonetheless, his fantasy ceiling is higher than ever, regardless of what uniform he is wearing. However, Holmes' health has been questionable over the years, which will cause his fantasy stock to decrease a bit ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield could be on the move. Hield has been the subject of trade discussions and has recently been linked to the Sixers and Lakers as potential destinations. The 28-year-old was vocal about his displeasure with the organization during the year, but he was a solid contributor, finishing the 2020-21 campaign by averaging 16.6 points while shooting 39 percent from deep. If Hield lands in Los Angeles or Philadelphia, he may routinely start or at least get consistent minutes as a bench option. Regardless, he is a capable scorer who has the potential to smash his fantasy expectations if given a chance.
