The Sacramento Kings' 2020-21 NBA campaign ended on a disappointing note, as the franchise did not qualify for the postseason. The defense was the biggest letdown for the Kings, and the front office will now try to add the right pieces to consolidate on that end of the floor.
The Sacramento Kings brought Richaun Holmes back, but are expected to lose Harrison Barnes, Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley III in the offseason. They start their summer games schedule by hosting the California Classic Summer League, which will also feature the LA Lakers, Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors.
In this article, we will reveal the Sacramento Kings' roster and schedule for the upcoming summer league events -

Sacramento Kings Summer League schedule and dates
The Sacramento Kings will begin their preparations with the California Classic, which will be followed by the traditional Summer League in Las Vegas.
The Sacramento Kings also have a busy offseason ahead. Recent NBA trade rumors suggest that the franchise intends to land Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons. However, the 76ers are only willing to listen to offers which include Kings' franchise point guard De'Aaron Fox, which could complicate the trade talks.
Luke Walton's team are looking to be back in postseason contention after a subpar showing in the 2020/21 season, and a lot of it will depend on how the front office performs in the offseason.
