Sacramento Kings Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
Last year was a massive step in the right direction for the Sacramento Kings. After being a doormat in the NBA for years, the Kings battled for 39 wins last season. They were in the hunt for a playoff spot until a tough stretch to end the season. There is talent at every position and with a growing fan base ready to cheer the Kings on again, a playoff berth could be in their near future.
Marvin Bagley III, a recent high draft choice for the Kings, is panning out and will become a star in the league very soon. Teams are searching for that elusive big man that can stretch the floor and knock down threes while still being a capable big man in the low post. Bagley III fits that description perfectly.
Two veterans on the wings that are used to winning are now members of the Kings as well. Trevor Ariza and Harrison Barnes are reliable veterans that can lead the Kings back to the playoffs. These two combined with young talent such as Buddy Heild and Harry Giles III will have the Kings set at the forward position for years to come.
The main attraction in Sacramento in definitely De'Aaron Fox. The electric point guard out of Kentucky has blossomed in to an NBA star. No one is quicker or more fun to watch with the ball in their hands than Fox at the moment. He is worth the price of admission and then some!

History of the Sacramento Kings
For the Sacramento Kings franchise, everything began nearly 3,000 miles away in Rochester, New York, in 1945 as part of the National Basketball League. Then known as the Rochester Royals, the Kings made their way through multiple cities, names and leagues before finding their way to Sacramento. The team joined the National Basketball Association in 1948, winning the NBA Championship only a few years later in 1951. From there, the Royals moved further south, to Cincinnati, where they resided for the next fifteen years. But in 1972, after nearly 30 years of being known as the Royals, the team moved again, this time splitting their home games between Omaha and Kansas City, and from that point forward fans would be buying Kings tickets to see their team play. Until 1975, the Kings continued to split time between the two Midwestern cities, until tickets sales in Omaha dropped so low the team abandoned the market. Eventually, Kansas City also proved to be unable to handle a NBA franchise. In the team's final season in the city, ticket sales plummeted, with less than 7,000 fans per game. With poor attendance, ownership decided to take the team west to the capital of California in 1985 to become the Sacramento Kings.
Over the long history of the Sacramento Kings, no matter which city they were in, there were great players who put on the uniform. In Cincinnati, there was the all-time great point guard Oscar Robertson, who is still the only player in NBA history to average a triple-double for an entire season. In Kansas City, they were home to Hall of Fame player Nate Archibald, who was an All-NBA First Team member three times with the Kings. From 1998 through 2005, some of the most successful seasons in team history, fans with Sacramento Kings tickets got to see Chris Webber lead the team. Now the Sacramento Kings are building their team around an extremely impressive class of rookies. The Kings have not been to the playoffs since the 2005-2006 season which makes them the current holder of the team with the longest postseason drought. They have the third-longest NBA postseason drought in NBA history. Will the Kings be able to turn it around with their young roster?
