Welcome to Sacramento, Kevin Huerter and Malik Monk!

The offseason madness is in full swing as the Kings have made some moves to add shooting to the roster. Of course, with additions, there must be some subtractions as Donte DiVincenzo, Damian Jones, Moe Harkless, and Justin Holiday are all on their way out of Sacramento.

On the latest edition of the Return of the Roar podcast, Frankie Cartoscelli and Chris Watkins break down Kings GM Monte McNair’s moves to bring in guards Kevin Huerter and Malik Monk, weigh the decision to let DiVincenzo walk in free agency, lay out the current state of the roster and much more.

Topics discussed:

  • Donte DiVincenzo is not extended a qualifying offer
  • Malik Monk joins the Kings on a two-year deal. Was it the right move to give him most of the MLE?
  • Damian Jones is heading back to Los Angeles
  • Can Richaun Holmes become a force off of the bench?
  • Sacramento acquires guard Kevin Huerter from the Hawks
  • The Kings have solid depth at the guard spots
  • Summer League starts Saturday


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.
