With the drama of the Sacramento Kings sale now officially over, Grant focused his talks today on the team’s on-the-court issues, such as what to do with DeMarcus Cousins, who they should draft and whether or not to keep Keith Smart as the head coach. Grant also covered the bad refereeing in the Miami Heat/Indiana Pacers game on Tuesday and the Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants Bay Bridge Series that has mostly favored Oakland thus far.
Former San Francisco Giants pitcher Bill Laskey joined Grant to talk about the Bay Bridge Series. Laskey discussed the A’s taking the first two games of the series, what he expected to see from Tim Lincecum, the road woes the Giants pitching staff has faced, the recent hot streak of the A’s pitching staffand the need for the Giants to get a replacement fifth starter in Ryan Vogelsong’s absence.
Sam Amick of USA Today Sports came on the show to chat with Grant about the latest Kings moves. Amick talked about the possibility of a coaching change for the Kings, who the Kings’ next general manager could be, what the Kings options are with DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans, and the other decisions the new ownership group is going to face this offseason.
