SACRAMENTO: LAST SEASON: 39-43, finished ninth in Western Conference.
COACH: Luke Walton (first season with Kings, fourth season overall, 98-148).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G De'Aaron Fox (17.3 ppg), G Buddy Hield (20.7), F Harrison Barnes (14.3), F Marvin Bagley III (14.9), C Dewayne Dedmon (10.8).
KEY LOSSES: C Willie Cauley-Stein, F Corey Brewer.
KEY ADDITIONS: Dedmon, F Trevor Ariza, G Cory Joseph, F Richaun Holmes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Kings are building around emerging stars Fox and Bagley. Fox took a major step in his second season to become one of the most complete point guards in the NBA. His speed fuels Sacramento's up-tempo attack and Walton hopes to get improved defense and 3-point shooting this season out of Fox to make him a more complete player. Bagley started only a handful of games as a rookie but took big strides in the second half when he showed the ability to be a top scorer. He increased his scoring average more than five points per game after the All-Star break to 18.5 and the Kings hope be builds on that this season.
OUTLOOK: The Kings extended the longest active playoff drought in the NBA last season when they missed the postseason for the 13th straight season. But they won their most games of any season during that stretch and finished ninth in the conference. The players view getting into the playoffs as a benchmark for a successful season but that will be hard in a deep Western Conference that only got stronger with moves this offseason.
ATLANTA: LAST SEASON: 29-53, missed playoffs.
COACH: Lloyd Pierce (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Trae Young (19.1 ppg, 8.1 apg), G Kevin Huerter (9.7 ppg), F De'Andre Hunter (No. 5 overall pick), F John Collins (19.5 ppg, 9.8 rpg), C Damian Jones (5.4 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Dewayne Dedmon, G Kent Bazemore, F Omari Spellman
KEY ADDITIONS: Hunter, Jones, F Cam Reddish, F Jabari Parker, G Evan Turner, G Allen Crabbe, F Chandler Parsons, C Bruno Fernando.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Young and Collins are two of the NBA's top young players, while Huerter shows plenty of promise, so the key to this season will be how well they mesh with two more first-round picks, Hunter and No. 10 choice Reddish. Hunter figures to start right away, while Reddish will get plenty of playing time off the bench. Also keep an eye on Parker, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014 by the Milwaukee Bucks. While he has yet to develop into the star everyone expected, Parker is still just 24 years old and has averaged 15.1 points per game over his five-year career. The Hawks, who are focused on player development, hope they can flush out Parker's game. Finally, the Hawks will send out 42-year-old Vince Carter for his record 22nd ' and final ' season in the NBA. Carter showed last season he's still got game, but he won't get as many minutes in his last hurrah as he serves more of a coach-mentor role to all the young players.
OUTLOOK: The Hawks showed promise in Pierce's first season but this franchise is still in the midst of a major rebuilding job. Atlanta might have an outside shot at slipping into the playoffs, but would probably be better off getting another crack at the draft lottery. General manager Travis Schlenk has been acquiring over-priced players that other teams wanted to get off the books. Parsons ($25.1 million), Turner ($18.6 million) and Crabbe ($18.5 million) are in the final year of their contracts, which means 2020 is the year to really start paying attention to the Hawks.
Hawks looking for answers as they entertain Kings

Atlanta Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce admittedly was stunned that the media had numerous questions following the team's fourth loss in five games.

While Pierce made light of the situation, he hopes the Hawks have more answers on the court Friday as they play their third home game in four days with an encounter against the Sacramento Kings.

"You can watch and see there was just bad body language, guys weren't ready," Pierce said after Atlanta made a season-low six of its 30 3-point attempts and committed a campaign-worst 24 turnovers in a 113-93 setback to Chicago on Wednesday.

"We just didn't care. We didn't have the 'care factor' today. It's a teachable moment, because it's our first back-to-back, and this is where you've really got to grind and dig in."

Jabari Parker had a team-leading 18 points on Wednesday for his sixth double-digit performance in seven games for the Hawks. Parker was starting his second consecutive contest in place of John Collins, who served the second of his 25-game suspension after violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

While Parker flourished, Trae Young fizzled on the heels of a 29-point, 13-assist performance in Atlanta's 108-100 victory over San Antonio on Tuesday. The second-year guard scored just nine points and misfired on all eight of his 3-point attempts.

"Coming off a big win, you've got to be mentally focused. You've got to approach every game like it's your last," Young said. "We didn't do that."

Young fared significantly better in his two encounters with the Kings during his rookie season, collecting a double-double (14 points, 10 assists) in a 146-115 loss on Nov. 1, 2018, and 23 points and eight assists in a 135-113 setback on Jan. 30.

First-year coach Luke Walton wasn't there to see Sacramento win those contests, however he received an eyeful on Wednesday as the club saw its modest two-game winning streak come to a halt with a 124-120 loss at Toronto.

"We showed growth again," Walton said. "I'm happy for the direction we're moving (in). It's a tough place to play, (they're) the NBA champs and they were making a lot of shots (on Wednesday). Our guys hung in there, stayed close. A week ago, this was a game that was turning into a 25-point game. To give ourselves a chance at the end is all you can ask for, and at the end, they made shots. We missed them."

The Kings tied a franchise record with 20 3-pointers, including six by Bogdan Bogdanovic and five more from fellow shooting guard Buddy Hield. Bogdanovic scored 13 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and Hield finished with 21 against the Raptors.

Hield flustered Atlanta in two games last season by scoring 45 points on 16-of-28 shooting from the field, including 9-of-15 from 3-point range.

Harrison Barnes did the majority of his damage on the interior Wednesday, scoring a season-high 26 points on 7-of-15 shooting.

De'Aaron Fox wasn't as fortunate, as his career-worst turnovers per game rate increased to 4.0 after having seven versus Toronto.
