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.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.

*Kings-Suns Preview* ====================


Sacramento (26-46) at Phoenix (23-49), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns have little to play for over the final three weeks of the season but the Kings appear less content to ride out the string.

Sacramento seeks its fourth win in six games Thursday night while trying to earn a rare road victory over the lowly Suns.

The Kings (26-46) are set to miss the playoffs for a seventh straight season but they have registered their most wins since 2007-08 after a 105-98 victory at Golden State on Wednesday. Isaiah Thomas had 31 points and made a career-high seven 3-pointers on 12 attempts as Sacramento earned only its second win in 15 road games.

In his last nine games, Thomas is shooting 44.3 percent from beyond the arc and is averaging 20.7 points - 7.0 better than his season average.

The Kings entered Wednesday's contest with a league-worst 6-30 road record and hadn't defeated an opponent with a winning record away from Sacramento until beating the Warriors.

"I thought overall our guys did a great job. We held our composure," coach Keith Smart said. "A road win, no matter where you are in the season, is always positive."

Earning wins in Phoenix have proved just about as difficult for Sacramento as it's lost in 12 of 13 visits, the most recent a 101-90 defeat Dec. 17. The Kings, though, snapped a five-game overall skid in the series with a 121-112 home victory March 8.

Thomas had a team-best 27 points and was one of four Kings players to top 20.

This time, the point guard and his teammates will face a Suns team that's dropped 10 of 12 after a 103-88 loss in Utah on Wednesday. Phoenix (23-49), which owns the Western Conference's worst record, trailed by four points entering the fourth quarter but was outscored 28-17 in those final 12 minutes. The Suns have been brutal offensively in the fourth quarter during a four-game skid, averaging 18.0 points on 28.9 percent shooting.

Wes Johnson had a season-high 22 points in the losing effort after scoring 21 in a home defeat to Brooklyn on Sunday.

Leading scorer Goran Dragic had 31 points and 12 assists in that 102-100 defeat to the Nets, but was given the night off Wednesday. Dragic has averaged 36.0 minutes over the previous six games and is expected to get some rest over the final 12.

"We're just kind of shutting him down," interim coach Lindsey Hunter said before the game. "He's been playing a whole lot of minutes and we're going to give him a break periodically through these last couple of games. If you watched him come out of games, he's looked like he's been in a brawl."

The Suns will try to avoid a season high-tying fourth straight defeat at the U.S. Airways Center on Thursday and their fifth in a row overall.

Phoenix needs five wins in its final 10 games to avoid posting its fewest in a full season since going 16-66 in its inaugural 1968-69 campaign. The Suns were 27-23 in the lockout-shortened 1998-99 season and 28-54 in 1987-88.
