But Sacramento has learned the NBA 2K18 MT

But Sacramento has learned the hard way that talent needs to be nurtured and molded. Given the NBA 2K18 MT sorry state of the franchise, it's an open question as to whether that will occur.George Karl, the Kings' permanently embattled coach, has a reputation for ignoring rookies.



To be sure, through the summer and fall, Karl set expectations for Cauley-Stein rather low. Cauley-Stein exceeded them through preseason, and began the season getting big minutes out of the gate. He played 30 minutes in the second game of the season, and continued getting time as DeMarcus Cousins went down with injury. Eventually, Cauley-Stein picked up an injury of his own. Still, every time he hit the court, it was clear that he was already the team's best defensive talent and the top partner for Cousins in the frontcourt.



Consider that Cauley-Stein has eclipsed Karl favorite Kosta Koufos in the rotation. (The rookie is averaging just one more minute than Koufos on the season, but has been trumping the veteran of late.) This is a positive sign, both for Cauley-Stein's early development and Karl's willingness to be less rigid. Perhaps that gnarly streak of rookie disappointments in Sacramento is ending.



But there's always a cloud. The major one regarding Cauley-Stein is that Karl is highly unlikely to return in 2016-17, so there's a new coach to impress. Who knows what style the new coach will bring with him, but ownership has favored Warriors-style pace and space. WCS doesn't space the floor, and if you're going to play an up-tempo style (as the Kings have this year) playing two true bigs together (say, Cousins and Cauley-Stein) makes less sense.



Cousins has stretched his own offense beyond the arc, and he's a good passer. That situates Buy NBA Live Coins Cauley-Stein as the traditional run-and-finish center. In a perfect world Cousins would be getting lots of post possessions, and there's really nowhere for WCS to go during those. His mere presence is an open invitation to double Cousins.The constant problem in Sacramento is there's no consistent plan. The Kings thought they were building a certain kind of team under Michael Malone: tough, slow, post-dominant.
