Vegas Over/Under: 28.5
The Record Projection: 28-54 of fromal The Bet: lean although Avoid under
It is the one set for the Sacramento Kings if any over/under mark looks on the money. But we will still lean ever so slightly toward the below, chiefly for reasons clarified by ESPN.com’s Kevin Pelton as he chased the Western Conference bottom-feeders to win just 27.4 games:
„Despite adding veterans Vince Carter, George Hill and Zach Randolph as free agents, the Kings are projected as the league’s second-worst offensive assault by RPM. Even though this isn’t a part of the projection, few teams will have more incentive to boost their draft pick, as Sacramento will not have its first-rounder in 2019 because of trade.“
That incentive to tank is large, and it might not even be as impactful as the possible reduction of Randolph. Explaining a scenario that could soon apply to the veteran power forward, Ronald Tillery wrote for The Commerical Appeal:“The league’s collective bargaining agreement with the players‘ association states a participant is going to probably be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA if he’s convicted of, or pleads guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to, a crime involving the prosecution distribution of marijuana.“
More minutes would be push by losing Randolph upon the Kings‘ assortment of youthful, inexperienced players. And that is the subject of the roster, as management has done a praiseworthy job of building up their coffers following the passing of DeMarcus Cousins.
That approach simply will not turn into many wins.
