Projecting Each Sacramento Kings Player's Minutes Per Game in 2012-13

For the first time in a long time, it looks like the Sacramento Kings have actual depth on their roster. They've got a couple players in DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans who could be integral pieces on most teams. They've also got some reserves who would also have significant roles on other squads.

Because of the added depth, there are a few different options for how head coach Keith Smart wants to align his rotation. In fact, Smart has shown as much by tinkering with his starting lineup and bench rotation throughout the team's preseason games.

As the season gets going and the team begins to get into a groove, Smart will  figure out which role each player is best suited for. When that happens, it will likely look something like this:


Note: You'll notice the slideshow is organized by position. Because of that, each player is pigeonholed into one position, even if he's likely to play multiple positions.

However, their minutes per game are indicative of their total minutes, not just minutes at their listed position. So, just because a player's listed in one spot, it doesn't mean I've forgotten about his ability to play other positions. It also doesn't mean that his projected minutes will only come at that one listed spot.
