I caught up with Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie this afternoon to get his take on the Kings’ 2-8 start. Here's some of that conversation.
“I don’t think you can avoid. Or record isn’t what we hoped it would be at this point and the major reason for that is that we’ve just struggled mightily on offense. The improvements we’ve made defensively for the most part have been mitigated by not being able to be productive offensively, primarily in the halfcourt.”
On if roster changes need to be made:
“I think in the short term you have to give it a little more time. And maybe there are different lineup combinations that will work better, maybe there are different rotations that will work better. But at some point those things have to be open for discussion. I don’t think this early in the season any teams are looking to be aggressive and make changes.”
On if he has to be more patient with young players:
“To a point. We’re still a young team but we’re not a totally inexperienced team either. But you’re still looking for growth there.”
