SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.
ORLANDO: GUARDS: With Dwight Howard gone, this becomes JAMEER NELSON's team on the offensive end. Injuries slowed him a year ago, but he still does a nice job creating his own scoring chances . . . ARRON AFFLALO will provide some much-needed defense on the perimeter, a huge team weakness that will be exploited in the post-Howard era. He'll be a No. 2 or 3 option on the offensive end as well . . . J.J. REDICK has a chance for a bigger role in what should be a transitional year in Orlando. He's no more of a defensive liability than Nelson . . . CHRISTIAN EYENGA was a throw-in during the Dwight Howard trade and defends well enough to earn a roster spot . . . ISHMAEL SMITH will back up Nelson once he returns from a shoulder injury . . . E'TWAUN MOORE has played well enough in the preseason to spell Nelson too. FORWARDS: HEDO TURKOGLU still has some value as a point forward, though his minutes could shrink as Orlando rebuilds . . . GLEN DAVIS shined in Howard's absence last year. He's inefficient, but aggressive and willing to throw his weight around . . . Keep an eye on ANDREW NICHOLSON; the rookie is a crafty scorer who can shoot away from the basket . . . QUENTIN RICHARDSON will chug along as an injury-prone, three-point specialist . . . AL HARRINGTON is coming off a couple knee surgeries and may not have much left in the tank . . . MOE HARKLESS is athletic, versatile, and could get a long look in the second half of the year . . . GUSTAVO AYON is a capable big body who can play some center . . . JUSTIN HARPER will be buried on the bench . . . JOSH McROBERTS is not good. CENTERS: Davis figures to see a lot of minutes at center, but NIKOLA VUCEVIC is a much better defensive option. He's limited offensively, but could start grabbing more minutes in the middle as the year goes on . . . KYLE O'QUINN is a big body who can score around the basket. He has a rough transition ahead of him as an average athlete from a small school.

*Kings-Magic Preview* =====================


Sacramento (19-38) at Orlando (15-41), 7:00 p.m. EDT

For all the struggles the Orlando Magic and Sacramento Kings have experienced, their most recent performances proved that teams should think twice about taking either of them lightly.

Sacramento looks to avoid a 10th straight road loss Wednesday night by earning its first season sweep of Orlando in nine years.

The Kings (19-39) entered Tuesday having dropped the first two on their five-game road trip and 13 of their last 16 contests overall, but they pushed defending champion Miami to the brink before fading in a 141-129 double-overtime loss.

It marked the sixth straight defeat for Sacramento, though there were plenty of positive signs in this one. Marcus Thornton scored 36 points off the bench, Tyreke Evans finished with 26 and DeMarcus Cousins added 24 and 15 rebounds.

"It's tough but this is a loss I consider a good loss," said Cousins, who's averaged 22.0 points and 12.6 rebounds in his last three games. "Our effort was incredible. We come out and play like that every night, we can beat a lot of teams."

Thornton agreed.

"To be able to take that team to two overtimes just shows the testament of us growing," Thornton said, "A team like that - championship team - they play great together. Obviously I hate losing but it was a great effort by us."

Though the Kings have averaged 105.8 points during their losing streak, they've allowed an average of 118.7 per game. They rank last in the league by yielding 104.9 points per game.

"We had every opportunity to win that game but it didn't fall our way this time," coach Keith Smart said. "We had a game where (LeBron James and Dwyane Wade) had to get 40 and 39 points to put us away and I thought our guys stayed right there on the number."

Orlando has been dealing with its own struggles, having lost 28 of its previous 31 before scoring its most points in more than two weeks in a 98-84 win at Philadelphia on Tuesday.

The Magic (16-41) ended a five-game losing streak, during which they were outscored by an average of 18.0 points, as Arron Afflalo and Tobias Harris scored 16 points apiece.

"I like that we were poised," coach Jacque Vaughn said. "We didn't crumble."

Rookie Maurice Harkless scored 10 points and is averaging 15.4 over his last five games. He averaged 4.8 points in his previous 46 contests.

"It feels great," Harkless said. "Guys feel good about themselves and it shows what hard work can do. There are a lot of smiles around here for a change.

"We worked so hard for this and we hoped it would come. It's just a great win and I'm happy for our whole team."

Though the Kings haven't won on the road since beating Washington 96-94 on Jan. 28, Orlando has lost 14 of its last 16 at home.

Sacramento will be going for its first season sweep of the Magic since 2003-04 after Cousins scored 17 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a 91-82 win Dec. 7.

Orlando shot only 37.5 percent in that contest while scoring the second-fewest points of any Sacramento opponent this season.

The Magic, averaging 87.3 points during a three-game home losing streak, had won seven of the previous eight meetings with the Kings.
