In the past few years, Sacramento has relied on the draft to add most of their new players. Free agency has, for the most part, slipped by quietly for the Kings organization.
If the Kings are committed to improving this season and actually competing for a playoff spot, this needs to be the season that they aggressively attack free agency. They have the cap space to do it, and plenty of holes in their roster that need to be addressed.
The major question is obvious—will Sacramento spend the money? In the last three years, the Kings have been at the bottom of league salary. It isn't exactly the most stable of times in Sacramento right now, but the owners, the Maloof Brothers, continue to insist they are financial sound and will spend as needed.
Will they spend above the league minimum this year? As doubtful as that might be, the Kings need to face the fact that they absolutely must be willing to spend money if they want to improve on the court.
The Kings must resign forward Jason Thompson, and resigning Terrence Williams would also be a good move. But after that? They have plenty of options.
Let's take a look at ten players Sacramento should seriously look at in this year's free agency crop.
