Sacramento Kings depth chart for 2021-22 NBA season

The Sacramento Kings enter the 2021-22 season looking to end the longest active postseason drought in the league.

The Kings are counting on mostly internal development to get them there, but they did make some notable additions in the offseason.

How will those additions impact Sacramento's rotation?

Key additions and subtractions

The Kings added to their depth by trading for Tristan Thompson, signing Alex Len in free agency and drafting Davion Mitchell with the No. 9 pick.

The Kings saw Hassan Whiteside leave the franchise for the Utah Jazz in free agency. Delon Wright, meanwhile, was included in the trade that brought Tristan Thompson to Sacramento.

Positional battles

Though we could see a fair amount of three-guard lineups, the Kings have five players who will be competing for minutes at the guard positions in De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield, Davion Mitchell and Terence Davis.

Fox will get one of the starting spots in the backcourt. The other will likely be between Haliburton and Hield.

The Kings also have some depth at center with Richaun Holmes, Tristan Thompson, Alex Len and Damian Jones.
