Kings To Sign Garrett Temple

    Kings are nailing it in FA. Temple can play either the 1 or the 2, and even 3 in some lineups. Underrated defender and an improved scorer, he gives us depth and an insurance policy in case Collison gets suspended. And the Kings didn’t overpay to get him.

    another former Heat summer league guy/camp invite getting paid. Lot of those guys out there. They do a good job at that….As said, he is versatile, and more importantly, plays good defense. Kings need guys like that. They’ve done a pretty good job getting some of these guys so far at a lower cost
