    Despite all the people on here saying he'd never stay, this is not at all surprising if you've followed the Kings and Cousins. He has never indicated an interest in going elsewhere and always has love for the city and fans. Vlade is 100% behind him. As is Ranadive.

    As a Kings fan, I'm happy. It's a ton of money, but he's a great player. We'd have to get a major haul for trading him to be worth it, and even then it's difficult to get a player with the potential of being as good as DMC is back in that trade.

    What it seems like to me as well. Except I don't think KG ever had character concerns or people worried he'd go haywire if the team lost games.

    Seems destined for failure but we'll see. Can't fault him for taking the money and can't fault SAC for trying to keep an elite player. Just doesn't seem like they'll be able to get the needed pieces around him.

    pretty much everything said here is how I feel about the situation.

    I'll believe this when I see it. He can't legally sign the contract until July 1st. That's a whole lot of time for more Kings shenanigans to make him reconsider. What happens when they inevitably miss the playoffs again? It's just hard for me to believe he's going to sign this contract without at least taking meetings in 2018. There are so many attractive destinations that will have max space. San Antonio, Houston, the Lakers, hell, the Bulls are going to have two max slots and his college buddies Eric Bledsoe and John Wall are only a year behind him in free agency. Literally anything he might want out of a team, true contender status, big market, playing with his friends, all of that is going to be available to him. And it's not like he's leaving that much money on the table by signing a year later if he ends up deciding to stay in Sacramento. It just makes very little sense to me that after eight years with this tire fire of a franchise he'd say "I don't need to see what else is out there. I'm staying here no matter what." So yea. I don't buy this.

    For the record, I think the inevitable endgame here is Boogie to Portland for CJ and change. I don't think Boogie signs this extension (and for the record, we still only have one source here, not even enough to satisfy basic journalistic standards). I think the Kings eventually freak out and decide to move him. I think they settle on the certainty of C.J's long term deal and established status rather than Boston's cavalcade of uncertain picks. That just feels like where this is going to me.

    I think this designated player extension is a management tool to guage a player's commitment before their final year. If he won't sign the extension, you trade him.

    Does anyone know if you can have more than 1 designated player? I thought of starting a thread but didn't think it was worthy. I don't want to hijack this one either. My thinking has to do with the Clippers; CP3 and Blake. Can they both sign this designated player 35% of the cap deal? It sounds like you can only have 1.

    Yes, you can have two. It's the Kevin Love rule, as Minnesota only had one and they wanted to save it for Rubio, which led to Love signing a shorter contract and then getting traded.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    I meant the situation, not the player. KG's huge contract handicapped a small market team and prevented them from keeping their good players or signing new ones.

    And I started the "Vote for Yi" Jianlian campaign to keep KG out of the all-star game, so I'm probably the biggest KG detractor on here.

    Future perennial loser. Talented player, arguably the best big man around. But by choosing the Kings is finalizing his place as the last relic of the old school through-the-post style. Unless they hire a good GM and Denver fires Malone.

    Yeah. Upwards of 40M per for 5 years is still a rather unfathomable number for just 1 player though. Plus Kings are terrible at your drafting/developing/trading model, just look up what they traded Isiah Thomas away for.

    Thats the exact reason that its a win-win for the Kings.

    No really. Sixers can swap the 2017 pick if they chose to and 2019 pick belongs to the Sixers unprotected.
