Once the Sacramento Kings take the floor for their first practice session next month, several positional battles are expected to take place.

After bringing both Matthew Dellavedova and Quinn Cook in for training camp, who has the upper edge in the race for the third-string point guard role? Will Kent Bazemore be included in new head coach Mike Brown’s rotation? Who will be Sacramento’s starting shooting guard?

During Thursday’s recording of the Return of the Roar podcast with Frankie Cartoscelli and Chris Watkins, the guys discussed the upcoming training camp battles and gave their takes on who should–and should not be–considered the front runner at each position.

Also:

  • Who is more suited for a bench role–Kevin Huerter or Malik Monk?
  • What are the Kings looking for in their third-string PG?
  • Is Terence Davis going to be buried on the depth chart?
  • Will the backup SF position be a carousel?

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.
