The revamped small forward position in Sacramento

The Kings entered last season with two small forwards in (checks notes) Justin Jackson and (checks notes again) Troy Williams as a two-way player who was involved with the first team quite often until late December.

The depth at small forward became so emaciated that Iman Shumpert, listed at 6’5”, took the mantle at the 3 and was tasked to guard players at least two to three inches taller than him.

Shumpert definitely made waves out of the gate, providing the team with gritty defense and unexpectedly solid offense.
