    Fun Facts for the season

    -The Kings currently hold the longest active playoff drought and are tied for the second longest streak in NBA history at 13 consecutive seasons without a playoff appearance (2005-2006 first round loss to the Spurs)

    -Harrison Barnes doesn’t provide enough on the court to produce per-game standard league value despite being one of the more durable players in the league as he has played in 95.8% of games over his last 4 seasons (Has only missed 13 out of a possible 310 games since 2016-17)

    -Richaun Holmes might have found a permanent home in Sacramento, his third NBA team in his first 5 seasons, and he was one of the biggest winners for any fantasy GM who drafted him before this season as he was unranked (according to Yahoo! and ESPN) while he was able to produce a career-high 4th/3rd round per-game value

    -The Kings will have a decision to make this offseason with their starting shooting guard as they benched Buddy Hield (64 games, 44 starts) towards the end of January in favor of Bogdan Bogdanović (53 games, 20 starts). Hield already signed an extension with the Kings for just over $90M and the team will have to decide if it makes sense for them to bring back Bogdanović, who is set to become a restricted free agent once the season concludes, while they already have a shooting guard locked up through the 2023-24 campaign.

    -Kings fans will have to wait another season to see what they have in their 2018 second overall draft pick, Marvin Bagley, as the forward was only able to suit up in 13 games this year due to a sprained foot

    -De’Aaron Fox sees a huge boost in value when looking at 8- (5th round) vs 9-cat (8th round) leagues due to the 3.2 turnovers he averaged so far this season (14th most out of qualified players)

    -Nemanja Bjelica was the beneficiary of injuries sustained in the Kings’ frontcourt as saw a career-high in minutes per game this year (28.5 minutes per game vs career mark of 21.8) and was able to capitalize on the additional opportunity by breaking into the top-100 in per-game value for the first time in his five-year career
