@DavidEchard I like Lowry but it will take $10M per year to get him to Sacramento, and I expect IT to resign for around $8M. Lowry is better but he's also been known as a poor locker room guy for most of his career. Do we need that guy replacing Cousins' closest friend on the team?
As for McCallum, I like the guy, but:
1) he's been playing like 43mpg, so knock his counting stats down 20% or so for starter-equivalent minutes
2) it's the end of the season and some teams are packing it in
3) it's a 10 game sample
It's way too freakin' early to be considering him as a starting PG for a team looking to get to the postseason.

Demarcus is just hard to relate to as a fan. He's improved so much on the court, I love watching the guy play this season (mostly). Like many young men what he lacks is experience and perspective.
Imagine being 23 years old, having some embarrassing moments of yours forever preserved in time on video and in articles. Imagine being targeted by agents, hangers-on, and opportunists since you were a young teenager. Imagine being so clearly talented yet being advised by players who are clearly less talented. Imagine having a 13K square foot house! Imagine being constantly reminded of your bouts of immaturity by writers and fans.
Demarcus doesn't play the public figure game well. He may improve in this area as he gets older. Look at guys like Webber, Barkley, etc. Very intelligent men who, at first, chafed at the expectations of an NBA star off the court. I think Cousins will develop his off the court "celebrity" game eventually, but it's hard to blame a guy for being wary of some of the media.

Great win! The 3rd quarter was so ugly. So much heroball, some really ugly turnovers by Gay. Let's see how the offense looks with a full training camp. Kings played some good team D tonight as well.

@Em Gee @KingsAllDay C'mon now. I can pull up a Quincy Douby Youtube highlight reel. He's playing in China.
The next Steve Nash with better shooting skills? Wow.

@Em Gee I have to give you credit for your faith in the guy. I bet you could get some generous odds in Vegas on your prediction.
@GrantChristensen Perhaps. If I'm Jimmer I'm wondering if the 3 minutes a game I'm getting in Chicago is going to cost me a multiyear contract this offseason. Other organizations are going to want to see him play legit game minutes.
As for the game, we'll be getting walloped IMO. Chicago is so well coached and their defense can just grind us down.
