May has played in just 82 games in his first three seasons in the NBA, due to three different knee surgeries. There were also many reports that he had a falling out with Bobcats coach Larry Brown.
While the Kings were working out May, another King, Ike Diogu waits for his fate. On a team that is clearly looking for frontcourt help, many are confused as to why Diogu hasn't received a contract offer.
Diogu was impressive in starting the last two games of the season for the Kings, but his team option was declined. Many expected him to be brought back into the fold with the Kings at a lower price. That has not happened. Diogu waits patiently.
"I was disappointed [the Kings declined the offer], because I felt that I handled myself extremely well in a very tough situation last year," Diogu said by phone from Phoenix. "I felt I could've helped the team a lot earlier than I was given the chance to, and I felt like they knew what they were getting."
It remains unclear if Diogu or May will receive offers from the Kings, who clearly need to fortify the frontcourt.
