Another DNP-CD for Queta. What on Earth are the Kings doing?

I’m actually an Alex Len apologist (he’s a decent back-up), but Damian Jones?!?! Why is he getting run over the 39th pick?
Kangs gonna Kangs.

I also know we all love Nemi, but the writing was on the wall when he got a two-way contract and the Kings decided to sign or trade for the “who’s who” of average but playable NBA centers. If he’s getting DNp-CDs in preseason games that don’t matter, don’t bother following the Kings season.

This is absolutely true. Getting drafted by the Kings is essentially an NBA death sentence.

The Kings have been horrible in the draft, and almost none of their draft picks have worked out. The good news for them is that the most recent two drafts have been better.

Queta made the team on a two-way contract. That means he cannot be on the team's active roster for more than 50 games this season per rules on those contracts. He will spend a lot of time on the King's G-League team this year.

First half. Griz vs, Clips...Konchar and Williams get 17 minutes off the bench at SG and get 1 more rebound than Sam gets while sitting. BOO!!!

Edit: Correction...Williams did get a bucket.

Will sam ever play? He must be 15th out of 15. His only chance of playing seems to be in a blowout, or injuries

He will. Might take a few months into the season, but I expect he'll start making it harder and harder NOT to play him based on his play in practice. It'll take some time, but he has a long NBA career in front of him.

Grizzlies playing terrible offense and worse defense to start the 4th. Sam had open corner three and missed

I hate watching Sam play in garbage time. He just fires away and I don’t blame him for trying to prove himself but that’s not his game.

Sam was actually playing in significant minutes but the grizzlies offense was Terrible during that stretch and the game got away from them. He played the whole fourth quarter.

When he was in Milwaukee and played during garbage time he actually played basketball. Rebounding, defense, passing the ball, but everyone around him was jacking up 30 footers to get attention. Perhaps he realized he has to do something to make a splash because all anyone notices these days is one long three pointer, never mind turnovers and going 1-8 from the floor.

Rats!!! This seems to be a recurring problem that isn't helping Sam's future stock.
Per nbcsportsedge:

Sam Merrill (left ankle) is out Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.
Merrill came in late for garbage time minutes during Thursday's game and sustained a left ankle injury, but since he's not a rotation player this will not impact fantasy hoops.

I said it before why not start Merrill because they have perfect guard to pair with Merrill.

I'm still trying to figure out the Both Gach thing and now this multi-Merrill thing is out there.

Merrill is out Saturday against the Timberwolves due to a left ankle sprain.
Impact: Merrill is only a fringe part of the Grizzlies' rotation. His absence won't impact the team significantly.
