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.
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.

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


Charlotte (14-20) at Sacramento (10-21), 10:00 p.m. EDT

As one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NBA, the Charlotte Bobcats rely on defensive stops to win.

They'll try to get back to doing so Saturday night at Sacramento as they look to snap a five-game losing streak while salvaging a win on this five-game trip.

"Our team is thinking too much about offense, we have individual guys who need to build their games around their defense and they're worried about their offense," coach Steve Clifford said. "We're not built that way.

"We're not going to be outscoring people. If we're not going to commit to defense and rebounding, then we're limited in how good we can be."

The Bobcats (14-20) have allowed 107.2 points during the current skid and are coming off their worst defensive effort of the season, a 134-104 loss at Portland on Thursday. The Trail Blazers shot 58.1 percent, including 21 of 33 from 3-point range, as Charlotte set a franchise record for 3-pointers allowed in a game.

The Bobcats were also outrebounded 52-30 for their worst rebounding total of the season.

"I don't feel we were ready to play," guard Chris Douglas-Roberts said. "They're too good not to come out and give a 100 percent effort. We kind of have to do some soul-searching and turn this thing around."

Douglas-Roberts led the Bobcats with 20 points off the bench, but leading scorer Kemba Walker was held to six points and 2-of-10 shooting.

The Bobcats are making 42.0 percent from the field on the season, lowest in the league, and they've shot below 40.0 in three of the last four games.

Walker has connected on 29.7 percent in the last five. Charlotte is 4-14 when he shoots 40.0 percent or worse and 10-6 when he's above the mark.

Sacramento (10-21) has been a poor defensive team all season, with a field-goal percentage defense mark of 47.2 that's among the worst in the NBA.

The Kings lost 113-104 at home to Philadelphia on Thursday and have allowed at least 100 points in eight straight, giving up 111.6 per game in that span.

Center DeMarcus Cousins scored a game-high 33 points with 14 rebounds, but the Kings are now 0-3 in his three highest-scoring games this season. He's averaged 33.7 points in those contests.

Reserve guard Jimmer Fredette added a season-high 15 points.

The Kings turned the ball over 23 times, two nights after giving it away only 13 times a 110-106 victory at Houston. Sacramento, which hasn't won consecutive games since Dec. 7 and 9, opened a five-game homestand by dropping to 6-12 at Sleep Train Arena.

"It's a setback, but we've just got to keep moving forward," Fredette said. "We still have four home games on this homestand. We just need to come out to play and try to get the next one. It's disappointing. We have to play better, and we need more energy."

The Bobcats beat the Kings 95-87 on Dec. 17 in Charlotte, holding Sacramento to 37.5 percent shooting to start a three-game winning streak. Walker scored 24 points while Cousins had 30 and 17 rebounds.

Sacramento won both games in the 2012-13 season series.
