Longtime broadcaster and former Kings head coach Jerry Reynolds joined The Drive Guys, Kevin Gleason and Kyle Draper, to share his thoughts on Carter, who is now in line to receive playing time in the second unit for Sacramento.

Plus: Jerry gives his take on why the Kings decided to move on from Mitchell and Vezenkov.
