Sacramento Kings Stats, Odds, Standings and Schedule for 2023-24 NBA Season

Sacramento Kings Last Season Performance

The 2022-23 season was a successful one for the Sacramento Kings, as they returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Though Sacramento started 0-4, it ended the season strong, winning the Pacific Division with a 48-34 regular-season record, securing its first winning season in 17 years.

After ending the longest playoff drought in NBA history, the Kings met Golden State in the first round of the postseason. Sacramento won the first two games over the Warriors, but it eventually lost the series in seven games to be eliminated from the playoffs.

Sacramento Kings Key Additions

Besides re-signing Harrison Barnes, Trey Lyles and Alex Len and extending Domantas Sabonis, the Kings didn’t make too many moves in the offseason in the form of additions.

Sacramento traded draft picks for Chris Duarte, who will now reunite with Sabonis after the two paired up in Indiana. Duarte was a solid 3-point shooter his rookie season, shooting 36.9% from the arc, but his play dropped last season, as he averaged 7.9 points a game and 31.6% from three.

The Kings also added Sasha Vezenkov, last season’s EuroLeague MVP. Vezenkov averaged 17.6 points and seven rebounds while shooting 39.8% from three in the EuroLeague.

Nerlens Noel and JaVale McGee were the last two signings by Sacramento. Noel should be backup to Sabonis after averaging 2.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in limited minutes last season while McGee should do the same after finishing last year with 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds a game while being playing sparingly.

Sacramento Kings Key Subtractions

The Kings lost a few players in the offseason, letting Terrence Davis and Chimezie Metu go in free agency while trading Richaun Holmes to the Mavericks as well.

Holmes and Metu served time as backups to Sabonis, with the trade of Holmes also helping Sacramento free up space to re-sign Barnes and extend Sabonis. Both played limited minutes, with Holmes finishing last season averaging 3.1 points and 1.9 rebounds a game, while Metu averaged 4.9 points and three rebounds a game.

Davis, meanwhile, was one of the Kings’ more solid shooters, averaging 36.6% from three last season and adding 6.7 points and 2.2 rebounds.

Sacramento Kings Head Coaching Analysis

The 2022-23 season was Mike Brown’s first as head coach of the Kings, and a successful one as well, as he helped Sacramento end their 16-year playoff drought. By doing so, Brown became the first-ever unanimous NBA Coach of the Year award winner.

Brown was previously a head coach of the Cavaliers and Lakers and most recently an assistant coach for the Warriors. He took Cleveland to the playoffs five of the six years he was coach along with the Lakers the one year Brown was head coach. However, he was fired five games into his second season with Los Angeles.

Brown has a 395-250 overall regular-season head coaching record, and he’s gotten his time in Sacramento off to a solid start with a 48-34 record.

Sacramento Kings Prediction for the 2023-24 Season

After returning all five of its starters from its playoff-making team last season, Sacramento should have another successful season this year.

In a competitive Western Conference, the Kings may not win 48 games again this season after sticking with their core and moves made by other teams, but they should finish above .500 once again, with NBA odds having them winning around 44.5 games.

Still, with the same solid core from last season and the team chemistry already there, Sacramento should reach the postseason for the second straight season.
