Senior NBA Insider for HoopsHype, Michael Scotto, joined The Drive Guys Wednesday to talk about his latest article involving Sacramento Kings’ Malik Monk and Domantas Sabonis. They also discussed Monk’s impending free-agency, and Michael’s thoughts on what could happen this summer in Sacramento. Plus, do the Kings need to make a big move this offseason?

All that and more on Sactown Sports.

“Malik is a very vibrant personality, and it showed when he was answering the questions,” Scotto said Wednesday. “I felt he was very sincere and I think he would like [to stay] ideally. It’s just going to be a question of whether a team blows him away with an offer more than that, which would be pretty substantial. I think Sacramento has a decent shot [to re-sign him].”
