Checklist for Sacramento Kings to Finally Make the NBA Playoffs Next Season

Retaining Isaiah Thomas is one of the key moves this summer.

The Sacramento Kings are remaining in town, have an exciting new ownership group and are close to building a new downtown arena, but the team needs to figure out how to finally make the NBA playoffs next season.

The Kings used to be a shoo-in for the playoffs in the late 90s and early 2000s, but the days of Mike Bibby, Peja Stojakovic and Chris Webber are long gone.  The team hasn’t had a winning record since that last playoff season of 2005-06.

The Kings have also gone through a myriad of coaches with none sticking for longer than three seasons.  Mike Malone hoped to make a strong impression in his first season, but the record remained the same as the previous season.

With all of that information, is there actual hope in the franchise?  With such a tough Western Conference, can the Kings make that jump by next season?

Let’s take a look at what needs to happen in order to get there.
