The Sacramento Kings aren't worried about making any more trades until they figure out just exactly what they've built with the team's current roster construction.
“Last year, we came in here and we couldn’t say that,” general manager Pete D’Alessandro said to NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper about having his own roster to work with. “Do we want to take our time a little and see where this thing goes? Yeah. It’s a different feeling. Yes, we want to see what this team is now.”
Head coach Mike Malone and D'Alessandro are both excited to have full control of the reins, and the team's 5-2 start to the 2014-15 NBA season has only amplified that feeling.
"(Coach) Michael Malone and I," D'Alessandro said, "in our first meeting with the team, we looked at everyone in the room and said, 'Guys, we picked this team now.' Our ownership, our front office, our coaching staff -- this is our team. Last year, we came in here and we couldn't say that. Do we want to take our time a little and see where this thing goes? Yeah. It's a different feeling. Yes, we want to see what this team is now. Does that mean any team in the league is ever sitting on their hands and saying they're done? No. Of course not. But we really feel about the acquisitions we made."
"We feel great about guys like (Omri) Casspi and Darren (Collison) and Ryan (Hollins). (Ramon) Sessions is now starting to come along as well. We want to see what we have here."
