4 bold predictions for Sacramento Kings entering 2020-21 NBA season

Entering the NBA Bubble in Orlando, the Sacramento Kings had a slim chance to make the playoffs, but they had a chance! The  Kings came up short of making the NBA playoffs for the 14th straight season, the longest active playoff drought in the NBA and are now just one season away from tying the longest playoff drought in NBA history.

While the Sacramento Kings have not had a winning season since the 2005-06 NBA season, they have been getting better over the last two years and have been just a couple of games back from the playoff hunt. A large part of that is because of their young duo in the backcourt in De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield. 

While Fox is more of an athletic playmaker who can attack the rim with ease, Hield tends to play more on the perimeter and is a high-volume three-point shooter. The two young players have led the Kings to back-to-back 30-win seasons and with a little extra help, this team could find themselves as the 8th seed in the Western Conference.

De’Aaron Fox is entering his fourth season in the NBA and has shown a lot of All-Star potential as he continues to get better each and every season. The Kings locked him up for the foreseeable future, signing him to a five-year, $163M max-extension this offseason. There are some questions about Buddy Hield’s long-term future with the organization, but both management and Hield have shut down any rumors and it appears as if Hield is in Sacramento to stay. 

Losing Bogdan Bogdanovic definitely hurts this team, as he was one of their better shooters and scorers on the offensive end of the court, but adding Tyrese Haliburton will help this team more than many initially thought. So where will this Kings team finish this upcoming season?
