SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: GREIVIS VASQUEZ seems to have the edge in the point guard battle. He's a pass-first floor general who fits better in a lineup full of chuckers . . . ISAIAH THOMAS will have a major role whether he starts or not. He can score, and while his lack of size is a defensive liability, he makes up for it with harassing on-ball pressure . . . MARCUS THORNTON will eventually be relegated to a smaller role, but the gunning combo guard will get his minutes until Ben McLemore is ready . . . BEN MCLEMORE takes a lot of heat for his lack of assertiveness, but he can knock down corner threes and is an outstanding athlete, which is enough to make him a fine role player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE is kicking around as trade bait . . . Second-rounder RAY MCCALLUM should earn a bench role.FORWARDS: With his potential to be a solid defender, JASON THOMPSON is likely to retain his starting job. He's an afterthought on offense, though . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH A MOUTE seems like a natural to slide into the starting lineup. He can defend multiple spots and doesn't need touches on a team of players who do . . . CARL LANDRY could unseat Thompson. We see him in the same kind of bench role he had in Golden State. He's very good offensively and a relentless rebounder, but will struggle defensively against top-line forwards . . . JOHN SALMONS avoided the amnesty axe, though his role will likely be reduced again . . . Stretch four PATRICK PATTERSON is on the fringe of this rotation . . . Streaky shooting should have TRAVIS OUTLAW in and out of the rotation. CENTERS: The new regime of head coach Michael Malone will try again with DEMARCUS COUSINS, who continues to show flashes of dominance but too often plays and acts like a head case. He's playing for a contract, which would presumably have him on his best behavior . . . CHUCK HAYES will continue to be a second-unit glue guy at the four and five.
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.

*Kings-Bobcats Preview* =======================


Sacramento (7-15) at Charlotte (10-14), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Following an impressive home debut with his new team, Rudy Gay must leave northern California for a while but has the Sacramento Kings feeling real good going to the road.

Gay looks to stay hot as Sacramento plays four road games in five nights, starting Tuesday night against the stumbling Charlotte Bobcats.

"The basketball is going to be in my hands a lot," Gay said, "so I'm just trying to keep everybody comfortable and keep everybody happy."

Gay, acquired from Toronto in a seven-player deal last Monday, takes some pressure off Kings top scorers DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas. Gay had 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting in his Sacramento debut, a 116-107 loss at Phoenix on Friday, then scored 26 in a 106-91 win over Houston on Sunday and left to a standing ovation from his new home fans.

"It makes the game so much easier," said Cousins, who had 21 points and 10 rebounds. "It's not such a heavy load on me and Isaiah every night, just having another go-to guy."

Thomas added 19 points for Sacramento (7-15), which held the lead for most of the final 35 minutes. Thomas, Cousins and Gay all made at least half of their field-goal attempts and combined for 17 assists. Gay chipped in five rebounds and four steals.

"It makes my job easier on offense. That's for sure," coach Michael Malone said of adding Gay, who averaged 19.4 points for the Raptors. "He's so skilled. He's so talented. He makes it look so easy out there. He can score in so many ways."

Malone also was pleased to see his team hold the Rockets, among the league's highest-scoring teams, to their second-lowest point total of the season on 41.3 percent shooting. The Kings allowed an average of 107.9 points in their other seven games this month.

Only once have they held an opponent below 100 away from home. They've played a league-low seven road games, going 2-5, but they'll follow this matchup with Wednesday's trip to Atlanta before visiting Miami on Friday and Orlando on Saturday.

Cousins has recorded double-doubles in all three of his games in Charlotte (10-14) and enters this contest having posted a season-high four straight.

Gay has averaged 24.3 points in three games against the Bobcats in 2013.

Charlotte has lost the last three meetings with Sacramento, held to 88.0 points per game on 41.2 percent shooting, and has been similarly mediocre offensively during its current three-game losing streak. The Bobcats averaged 87.3 points and shot 42.6 percent, including 10 of 42 from 3-point range.

All three games were decided by single digits, and Charlotte had a fourth-quarter lead in the last two against Indiana and the Lakers.

"We've played a few games now where it's come down to the end, especially against good teams, and just haven't been able to come up with the plays," guard Gerald Henderson said. "... We need to be more consistent down the stretch of games at both ends. That goes for everybody, myself included."

Henderson has scored in double figures in 15 straight games and Kemba Walker has done so in 13 in a row, including a game-high 24 points in Sunday's 88-85 home loss to Los Angeles.

Walker has averaged 12.7 points on 35.0 percent shooting, including 2 of 16 from beyond the arc, in three meetings with Charlotte.
