The Sacramento Kings have had young talent the past few years, but they haven't been able to turn that into winning seasons.
Fortunately for Kings fans, it doesn't always have to be that way.
For the first time in years, the team has been aggressive, addressing its need for another big man, small forward and point guard by drafting forward Thomas Robinson, signing forward James Johnson and signing guard Aaron Brooks.
In fact, the addition of Brooks almost ensures 48 minutes of up-tempo point-guard play; something I haven't seen from the Kings since the Mike Bibby-Bobby Jackson days.
I know it takes a lot of roster investment and a lot of things to go right for a team to contend for a title, but that doesn't mean the Kings haven't at least made strides toward becoming a better team.
Here are five more steps the Kings need to make to get back to playing winning basketball.
