With the help of players such as Isaiah Thomas, head coach Michael Malone has the Kings on the right track. However, there are still areas to improve.

When you finish with a 28-54 record, as the Sacramento Kings did, there are always areas in need of improvement. Whether it's bringing in a player who fills a particular schematic need or getting the current ones to focus on specific areas, making strides is well within reach.

For the Kings, their overall defense progressed from where it was in 2012-13. The team finished 23rd in defensive rating this past season, compared to 29th the prior year. But other areas, such as three-point shooting, took a step backward.

The key is isolating the problem and then finding a solution to fix it. That's what we'll do in this slideshow—find areas in which the team needs to improve and provide answers for how it can address them. 

Despite their record, the Kings are on the right track. In order to assure that's still the case next season, here are the areas they must upgrade this offseason.
