Chris Biderman, senior sports reporter for the Sacramento Bee, joined Deuce & Mo on Thursday afternoon to preview the 49ers and Eagles matchup for the NFC Conference Championship, plus talk about the Sacramento Kings roster construction and potential playoff matchups for Sacramento.

Topics discussed include:

  • Thoughts on the Sacramento Kings roster at this point in the season and if the team needs to make any changes
  • “I’m probably not making a move that upsets the applecart…I don’t know that there’s a move out there that they could make that would allow them to provide enough of an upgrade this year without sacrificing too much of the long-term potential for this team.”
  • What’s jumped out of Keegan Murray’s performances lately
  • Players around the league who can help improve the Sacramento Kings roster
  • Why a top-six seed in the NBA playoffs is not out of the realm of possibility for the Sacramento Kings
  • “The big question for me is what’s it [the Kings’ offense] going to look like in the playoffs.”
  • What are realistic expectations for the upcoming seven-game road trip?
  • The Philadelipha Egales will be “the toughest test” for the 49ers since Brock Purdy was inserted in the starting lineup
  • “Brock Purdy has proven to be a little bit more than a game manager, he can make plays outside the structure of the offense.”
