Kings keep Ty Lawson, release Jordan Farmar, Isaiah Cousins

October 25, 2016

Despite some preseason incidents, the Kings have elected to keep guard Ty Lawson on their roster. Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesTy Lawson claimed the Sacramento Kings' last available roster spot Monday, after the team announced the release of fellow guards Jordan Farmar and Isaiah Cousins.

Lawson won the duel for the Kings' 15th roster spot and is expected to open the season as the stand-in point guard for suspended Sacramento starter Darren Collison, despite the fact that Lawson showed up late for one morning shootaround and missed a team flight ‎the following day earlier this month‎.

New Kings coach Dave Joerger has been a big backer of Lawson, ‎insisting in recent days that there is "no situation" with Lawson and repeatedly praising the veteran guard's play throughout the preseason.

Lawson was summoned to meet with club officials after he missed a team flight from Las Vegas to Kentucky for a recent exhibition game in Lexington, but Kings general manager Vlade Divac ultimately told local reporters that the team was satisfied with Lawson's explanation that a "personal issue" caused him to miss the flight....

Spurs guard and proud Aussie Patty Mills discusses past, present, future

October 25, 2016

Although he's just 28, San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills has long been a source of pride for Australians.

After honing his basketball skills at the Australian Institute of Sport, he made a name for himself in the United States as a collegian at Saint Mary's. He was selected in the second round of the 2009 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers and spent two seasons in the Pacific Northwest. He joined the Spurs in 2011 and won an NBA championship in his third season in San Antonio.

We recently caught up with Mills to discuss his homeland, the upcoming season, the Rio Olympics, footy and more....
