Three games into the 2022-23 season, there are several key storylines surrounding the Sacramento Kings.

Has De’Aaron Fox fully unlocked his star potential? Has Keegan Murray exceeded expectations? What’s going on with Harrison Barnes?

On the latest edition of the Return of the Roar podcast, Chris Watkins and Frankie Cartoscelli dove into the start of Sacramento’s season and gave their takes on all of the early-season topics.

Topics Discussed:

  • How are you feeling about the Kings: Discouraged, encouraged, neutral?
  • After having a brutal start to last season, De’Aaron Fox is having an incredible start to 2022-23
  • Is it time for Keegan Murray to start? (Yes, it is)
  • What’s going on with Harrison Barnes?
  • The bench has been disappointing. Which second-unit player needs to step up the most?
  • Mike Brown’s impact
  • Can you name all seven continents?

The Return of the Roar podcast is a Sacramento Kings podcast hosted by Kings beat writer Frankie Cartoscelli and digital content producer Chris Watkins for Sactown Sports 1140.
