Kings' Louis King: Puts up 12 points in start

King posted 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, three steals and a blocked shot across 28 minutes in Sunday's 121-99 loss to the Jazz. King performed well despite picking up five fouls. The Oregon product has come in handy with Sacramento's rash of injuries, but it would be surprising to see him on the roster next season. Des[ite this standout game, King will likely find himself back in the G League next season. He could also be a Summer League participant as he looks for greener pastures.

Kings' Louis King: Explodes for 27 points

King mustered 27 points (10-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks across 34 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss at Memphis. King had played a combined 23 minutes in his first four appearances off the bench, but he broke out in a big way Friday and posted season-best numbers across the board while filling out the stat sheet. The Oregon product might have a big role off the bench in the season finale Sunday against the Jazz, but his uncertain role puts a big question mark on his upside for the final game of the campaign.
