Well, I will make an update on what has happened this summer for our team.
Additions to the Roster
On Draft night this year, there was a lot of debate on who we would select to be on our team. All that debate vanished once we found out that Thomas Robinson fell down to the fifth spot, where we were selecting. He can provide some hustle, effort, and what is most needed for our young team, leadership and great defense. It was a great pick, and many people in Sacramento love having T-Rob on our roster. In the second round of the draft, we traded our pick for cash, so we won't have the possibility of having a second-round gem this year.
We also traded a second-round pick in 2014 for forward James Johnson. He will add the depth that we needed for our front-court. We have signed point guard Aaron Brooks. He is a very good signing, someone who doesn't need the ball in his hands to be effective. But in order to make this move happen, we have waived Hasan Whiteside.
Well, all eyes were (and still are) on Thomas Robinson, the fifth pick, and Jimmer Fredette, to see if he has gotten his stroke back. In the first game, we were blown out by the Bobcats but Thomas Robinson had 19 points and five rebounds. Then, we beat the Lakers in our second game, by eight points. Thomas Robinson grabbed 12 boards in that game. And finally, in our latest game, we were blown out again, but this time against the Houston Rockets. Jimmer put on a great show, scoring 30 points. meanwhile, Thomas Robinson added eight rebounds and three assists. We play the Toronto Raptors tomorrow.
