The Sacramento Kings have wiped the slate clean and have gone all in on a full and proper rebuild. With that, we take a look at the team’s biggest strengths and weaknesses heading into the 2017-18 season.

At long last, the 2017-18 NBA season is finally here and for the Sacramento Kings, this year will be a welcome change of pace. Optimism is riding high among the Kings’ fanbase heading into the new campaign and it’s for very good reason.

After all, the Kings appear to finally have a plan in place and after a very successful offseason through both the draft and free agency, we’ll finally get to see it in action once their season tips off this Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets.

With that being said, that doesn’t mean success will come to them right away.

Deploying as many young and inexperienced players as they will this season, the Kings’ growing pains will be on full display, especially being within in an incredibly competitive Western Conference.

In addition to that, the multiple veterans they have added during the offseason won’t exactly boost their win total, with the lone exception being George Hill (that is, if he can stay relatively healthy throughout the year).

But after many years of unsuccessfully aiming for the middle, the Kings have gone back to the drawing board and stand fully committed to ushering in a long and lasting era of sucesss, no matter how long it takes.

While they’ll likely add to their playoff drought once the season concludes, success will be defined differently for the Kings over the next couple of years.

So without further ado, let’s break down the biggest strengths and weaknesses for the Sacramento Kings heading into the 2017-18 NBA season.
