Challenges upheld: Pacers, Kings get calls changed in India

  Challenges upheld: Pacers, Kings get calls changed in India Officially, it's an NBA first: Coaches successfully argued referees' calls Saturday. Sacramento's Luke Walton became the first coach to win a challenge — a new option for coaches to use in the NBA this season — when he asked for a review of an out-of-bounds call during the third quarter of the Kings' game against the Indiana Pacers in Mumbai, India. Review showed that Walton was right and the Kings retained possession. About a minute later, Pacers coach Nate McMillan wanted a review of a goaltending call made against Indiana center Myles Turner — and he, too, was proved correct, resulting in a jump ball at midcourt instead of two points for the Kings.

Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield said the team’s million offer was an “insult,” hinting he might demand a trade if the Kings don’t offer more before Monday’s Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield (24) attempts to steal the ball from Utah Jazz guard Emmanuel Mudiay, left, in the first

Hield , safe to say , wasn't a fan, telling reporters after last night's preseason game he viewed the offer as an insult. Given the Kings finally have something good going after spending the better part of 15 years floundering in the basement of the Western Conference and the top of the NBA Draft, this is a

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Kings guard Buddy Hield said he feels undervalued by the organization and hinted he might demand a trade if the team doesn’t bring a better offer to the table before Monday’s deadline for rookie-scale extensions.

Hield’s voice quivered at times during an emotional postgame interview following a 124-110 victory over Melbourne United on Wednesday night at Golden 1 Center. After addressing a larger group of reporters, Hield told The Sacramento Bee he was insulted by the team’s four-year, $90 million offer, the terms of which were first reported Wednesday by Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

“I see it like an insult,” Hield told The Bee. “I feel like I’m worth more than that. If you say I’m your guy and you want to build around me, I just need you to show it. Actions speak louder than words. If you’re just talking and not showing nothing, I’m not going to respect it. I love playing here. I want to be here. This is my home. I’m trying to buy a house here, but everything is on stall mode because I don’t know if they’ll really commit to me.”

Hield, 26, isn’t demanding a max contract extension, but he told The Bee $100 million over four years would not be enough. League sources told Yahoo Sports that Hield and his agent, Brandon Rosenthal, are seeking a deal closer to $110 million. Hield said he was not confident the two sides could come to terms before the deadline and indicated for the first time he might seek a way out of Sacramento if that doesn’t happen.

Kings guard Hield could lose millions in firestorm between NBA, China

  Kings guard Hield could lose millions in firestorm between NBA, China An international firestorm between China and the NBA could cost Kings guard Buddy Hield millions of dollars on his next contract.The geopolitical flap started last week when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a since-deleted tweet in support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. The NBA has built a booming business relationship with China, but the league stands to lose billions of dollars in lucrative television and merchandising contracts as a result of the controversy.

“I don’t know if things are going to get done,” Hield said while standing in front of his locker with more than a dozen reporters gathered around and three team staffers hovering nearby. “If it don’t get done, me and my team will look for something else — probably another home. Until then, we’ll see if they really want me here. That’s the goal, to be here. I love Sacramento, but if they don’t want me here, if they don’t feel like I’m part of the core … I want to be here. If they don’t want me here, find somewhere else to be.”

Hield is eligible for a four-year deal worth about $130.7 million or a five-year, designated-player extension worth up to about $170 million. He will likely become a restricted free agent this summer if Monday’s deadline passes without an agreement. The Kings will have the right to match any offer he receives from another team, but the relationship could be damaged if the two sides don’t come to terms on an extension now.

Kings cover up Taylor Swift banner at Staples Center

  Kings cover up Taylor Swift banner at Staples Center There's now a "Blank Space" in the Staples Center rafters. The Los Angeles Kings covered up a banner commemorating Taylor Swift before Saturday's home opener against the Nashville Predators. The banner, which lauded Swift for having the most sold-out performances at the arena, won't be removed entirely but will continue to be covered up at Kings games going forward, according to the Los Angeles Times' Arash Markazi. The Los Angeles Kings covered up a banner commemorating Taylor Swift before Saturday's home opener against the Nashville Predators.

Say your hand is an A-K and other players have a 7-4 and a 10-5. You should be able to get both of them out of the hand before the flop. Say you have an A-K but the flop comes up J-J-5. That does you no good and if someone else has a J you're suddenly a big underdog.

Kings coach Luke Walton addressed the impasse before Wednesday’s game. Walton said he frequently talks to general manager Vlade Divac and the rest of the front office about basketball matters, but he stays out of financial discussions.

“As a coaching staff, you don’t get into the numbers,” Walton said. “That’s between the players and the front office and agents — and hopefully agents and front office so the players can focus on what we’re trying to do as well.”

As a former player who spent 10 seasons in the NBA, Walton said he understands the strain contract talks sometimes create.

“I know it’s real,” Walton said. “I’ve gone through it as a player and you overanalyze. I, as a player, overanalyzed things at times during free-agent years … but as a coach, I try to hang onto that as a positive, as a way to be able to talk to the guys and relate to them if I feel like we need to. And just being aware of, not just contracts, but as a player, there’s always family, there’s always something going on, a human element that is important and we are aware of as a group, and we support each other as a group. So teammates and coaches, we have each other’s back, and contracts are one of those things.”

Hield first expressed his feelings in an interview with The Bee last week. He reiterated them even more publicly Wednesday night with cameras rolling and a full contingent of Sacramento media standing by. Just before leaving the locker room, with the clock ticking closer to the deadline, Hield was asked if his relationship with the organization had been frayed.

“I’m cool with everybody,” he told The Bee. “They’ve just got to make something happen before the deadline. I have people I need to take care of. If they don’t trust me or they don’t believe in me, then I might be able to move on and try another option.”
