Will new era revive Kings?--Sacramento Bee

• Starter: Greivis Vasquez (trade)

• Backups: Isaiah Thomas, Ray McCallum (rookie)

• The skinny: The Kings dealt their former point guard of the future (Tyreke Evans) and landed Vasquez, a pass-first point guard with good size (6-foot-6) and the leadership intangibles needed in the locker room. Vasquez was third in the NBA with 9.0 assists per game for New Orleans last season. Vasquez's addition means a new role for Thomas. The Kings tried to supplant Thomas as the starter last season but eventually conceded he was the team's best floor leader. Most league observers view the 5-9 Thomas as a backup. The Kings are intrigued by the possibility of their new point guard tandem, too. Ever the competitor, Thomas won't concede playing time to Vasquez or McCallum, a second-round draft choice. But the Kings are definitely better with Vasquez on the roster.
Ducks begin practice--Register Guard
Jason Calliste is a senior who averaged 14.4 points and 3.3 assists per game last year at Detroit. He joins a veteran backcourt.

“He can help us in a number of ways,” Altman said. “His experience level, his toughness. We are going to play a lot of three-guard sets this year, maybe almost exclusively. Jason is going to be a big part of that.”
