Brenden Nunes, sports writer for the Kings Herald, joined Whitey & Watkins Thursday to talk about how the Sacramento Kings 2023 summer league so far, who has made the biggest impression for the Kings, and what else has caught Brenden’s eye in Las Vegas. Plus, could Kings rookie Colby Jones play up to three positions in the NBA?

All that & more on Whitey & Watkins.

“At the NBA level, I think that we’re talking [two positions] right now. But in the long term, three,” Nunes said on the show Thursday. “I think with Colby, in my mind, you’re talking one to three [positions]. But he’s gonna kind of have to work his way up there. I think right now, probably [the one & two positions] mainly.”

  • Why is Kessler Edwards struggling in the Summer League?
  • Thoughts on Luke Loucks, Jalen Slawson, Colby Jones and Neemias Queta
  • How have Queta and Keon Ellis become mentors for the Kings this summer?
