Kings coach Mike Maloneis thinking about changing the starting lineup, because it’s as close to changing the actual roster as you can’t get, and that’s not an option (yet). Makes sense, considering their starting lineup of Greivis Vasquez, Marcus Thornton, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and DeMarcus Cousins has been outscored by 23.3 points per 48 minutes this season.
Of course, that’s a coach’s decision. Players shouldn’t weigh in on that stuff because it seems like a betrayal of your teammates and oh, hi, DeMarcus Cousins, how are you?
Michael Malone said after last Saturday’s game to the Blazers that he plans on changing his lineup. After practice today, the Kings starting center said he agreed with his coach’s decision.
“I’m on the same page with him,” Cousins said. “It needed to be some changes because some guys were put in position and they didn’t step up to it. So, we gonna let the next guy do it.”
