Kings will rely heavily on younger players Fox, Bagley

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) As one of the NBA's youngest teams for a second straight season, the Sacramento Kings are thinking long term.

It's not that the Kings are giving up hope on ending their 13-year playoff drought. The roster is laden with young and mostly unproven players, coupled with playing in a Western Conference that got even tougher with the arrival of LeBron James. So Sacramento's focus is as much on development as instant success.

"It's a season where we're going to commit to playing even more young guys than we have in the past," Joerger said. "It's an opportunity for guys to develop and it's an opportunity for the organization to evaluate long-term which guys will still be considered a core guy two, three, four years from now."
