Preseason: Kings vs Washington U.

Looking forward to this tonight, although no idea which Kings are suiting up. Obviously no Lisch & Maric, and Khazzouh will still be out, so I guess it's going to be a handful of DPs/fringe guys, Cadee/Garlepp/Newley/Hill and Bryson if he's in town?

That means expect No Defense will be played by the Kings and Washington should smash the Kings!

Still no word from anyone if Bryson is in town, which is a little bit frustrating... Hate dragging the chain with imports coming in and not getting enough pre-season with the team...

Looks like no Bryson according to the boxscore. That's a shame. Some familiar names, good to see Prewster on the (preseason) roster.

Kings declined the offer of a free stream.

I wonder who was guarding Fultz? Cadee doing what he does against sub-professional competition. Maybe this is the season for him??

Well, that got a bit heated. Not sure what started it, but Garlepp/Newley/Prewster were all getting stuck into it with the Washington bigs (and Newley with the Washington coaching staff at one point) and a few times it flared up. After the end of game handshakes the Kings were huddled on centrecourt and the Washington big who was most fired up got stuck into it again and the Washington coach had to come out and order him and the rest of the team back to the locker room.

I guess it's the same story each year with the college teams - I'm sure they come out to Australia expecting to stomp some professional teams.

Kings were severely undersized with Hill/Garlepp starting at the 4/5 against a couple of solid Washington bigs, and we also played some pretty decent stretches with 5 guys on the court who likely won't be on the roster this season.

Cadee was Curry-esque tonight, Newley found his stroke late but looked a bit rusty, Hill was OK, Prewster was really solid, and Tommy got his jumper blocked a few times but got his own back with a few really nice blocks too.

Some of the DP/non-roster guys were interesting. Faithful was strong on D as usual and Moller actually had a good impact as a rebounder/shot blocker. I don't know the story behind Isaac Turner - sounded like he had an American accent? Is he an import? I think he would probably be kicking himself that he missed so many good looks from deep, because he looked like he might be a solid option as a cheaper import to give depth at PG.

Thanks Watson for your crap input.

Cadee guarded Fultz quite a bit and the Kings did OK on D, but Fultz took some bad shots too, and drove right into traffic a whole heap. I was more impressed by their big who gobbled up every rebound that came his way... Looking at the box it must have been Dickerson.

Yeah, Noah Dickerson, he's a beast, and has a nice touch on his jumper too. Also like the look of Malik Dime, their other strongly built forward, real meat and potatoes guy.

Impressed to hear that Cadee took on the job on Fultz and did well, suggests he's serious about improving that part of his game.
