Kings GM Says New Players Should Equal Better Basketball


The Kings have turned over nearly half the roster since last season. Six new players are on the team this year -including draft pick Nick Stauskas from the University of Michigan.

At today's groundbreaking General Manager Pete D'Alessandro says the addition of two experienced guards to the team in the off-season will help.

"I think Darren Collison is a big part of this thing. I think he is a very under-stated leader-type point guard and I think he'll be a big part of the change in our offense. We're excited to see him out there as well as Ramon Sessions. We're seeing a lot of veteran leadership from him. It starts with the guy who's got the ball in his hands."

D'Alessandro says fans should notice a change.

"I think we're trying to bring a different brand of basketball. In talking to our coaches, you know, we talked about picking up pace, trying to play more of a fluid style. We've seen some of that in training camp and I think that's going to be a growing process. We want to be a different team."

The Kings open tonight at Sleep Train Arena against the Golden state Warriors.
