07:21 AM ET 11.21 | Sacramento appears ready to turn its eyes and its roster over to the future. The Kings are aggressively pursuing trade possibilities in hopes of accelerating the rebuilding process, NBA.com has learned, with one executive saying the team is looking to swap veterans for prospects and picks. ... One league source rated Sacramento's interest level in making a move soon as "very high," and said the new front office led by owner Vivek Ranadive and general manager Pete D'Alessandro has had discussions with several clubs in hopes of generating activity long before the Feb. 20 trade deadline. The Kings (3-7) have several veterans that could be of interest to playoff-bound teams looking for depth. ... John Salmons just lost his starting job at small forward, as did shooting guard Marcus Thornton and power forward Patrick Patterson.

Congrats!Howard really needs to maintain his composure.He got fouled. But, his tech started the beginning of the end.Gotta say I was wrong about Monta......so far.It looks like he FINALLY gets it.Good win for your team, Guam.They look good.

Thanks Mecca. Great win for the Clipps also. I tried to tell you about Monta. He led the Bucks in assists last year. He is awesome when he is aggressive. The players are getting use to each other more. Larkin will also make a difference off the bench. Vintage Dirk is coming back...

I thought they would get blown away. They surprised me. I wasn't really expecting a win but they're getting together fast.

They should call this the NTA (National Tank Association) because I have never seen so many teams in 1 NBA that are actively trying to tank this early. This shows that the NBA Lottery is flawed, because the more games you lose, the more ping pong balls you get. They should go back to the old system (1985-93) where you put the non-playoff teams in a hat, and draw them in order for the draft.

Great idea. Keeps teams from intentionally tanking but I think some teams are not tanking in purpose. They're way over the cap for a reason.

The Have are a real good team this year. With Monta to complement Dirk's offense they are dangerous. A second round team in the playoffs.

Yup, still crossing my finger.

Still not a bad record for the Rockets. They'll get it together especially w/ Dwight hitting more then 50% of his FTs...
