07:52 AM ET 12.17 | Just how crowded can the Sacramento backcourt get? A day after Isaiah Thomas scored 26 points off the bench against Oklahoma City -- and three days after Jimmer Fredette scored an efficient nine points in 15 minutes in Milwaukee -- Kings coach Keith Smart said he remains reluctant to designate either player his backup point guard. "I keep wrestling with that, but every game dictates something different," Smart said after practice Saturday. "It may come to a point where I say, 'I'll play this guy for five games and see what happens.' But then I may need this guy's energy, I may need this guy's shooting. They're not the same type of player." Since inserting Aaron Brooks into the lineup Nov. 18, Smart has alternated between Thomas and Fredette.

They are stunting the growth of all these guys.Time to start trading off some pieces

The problem is, there is No plan. They don't even know what city they're going to be in.
Terrible coaching. Boneheaded center. Lackadaisical PG.
This is a terrible "team" right now and everyone is just playing to build their resume for a contract (or trade).
