Vegas Over/Under: 28.5
The Record Projection: 28-54 of fromal The Bet: lean although Prevent under
It is the 1, if any over/under mark looks right about the money. But we will still lean ever so slightly toward the below, largely for reasons explained by ESPN.com’s Kevin Pelton as he chased the Western Convention bottom-feeders to win only 27.4 matches:
„Despite incorporating veterans Vince Carter, George Hill and Zach Randolph as free agents, the Kings are projected as the league’s second-worst offensive attack by RPM. Even though this isn’t part of this projection, few teams are going to have more incentive to improve their draft pick, as Sacramento will not possess its first-rounder in 2019 due to commerce.”
That incentive to tank is big, and it may not even be as impactful as the possible reduction of Randolph. Explaining a scenario that may soon apply to the veteran power forward, Ronald Tillery wrote for The Commerical Appeal:”The league’s collective bargaining agreement with the players’ association states a participant will probably be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA when he is convicted of, or pleads guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to, a crime involving the felony distribution of marijuana”
Losing Randolph would thrust on moments on the Kings’ collection of inexperienced gamers. And that is the subject of the roster, as management has done a praiseworthy job of building up their coffers following the passing of DeMarcus Cousins.
That approach will not turn into many wins.
