Pencils down. It’s time to look through some Sacramento Kings mid-season progress reports.

On the latest edition of Return of the Roar podcast, Chris Watkins and Frankie Cartoscelli were joined by ABC 10 and Locked On Kings host Matt George and The Kings Pulse Podcast’s Brenden Nunes to recap Wednesday’s win over the Los Angeles Lakers, discuss whether or not the team should look to make significant moves at the deadline, hand out mid-season progress reports, and more!

Topics Discussed:

  • De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis both crack the top 10 of the latest NBA All-Star fan vote totals
  • What is Fox’s most significant hurdle in securing an All-Star spot?
  • Sacramento continues to roll with its fifth-straight win over the Lakers on Wednesday night
  • Richaun Holmes stepped up in a big way in light of Sabonis’ absence
  • What does Holmes’ trade value look like?
  • Should the Kings rock the boat by making a roster-altering trade, or should they keep the main rotation intact at the deadline?
  • Mid-season report cards ✍️
