After 30 years in Sleep Train Arena, the Sacramento Kings have moved to a brand new arena; The Golden 1 Center. The Golden 1 Center is one of the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly arenas in the league. It is 100% solar-powered and even has its own mobile app to navigate bathroom lines and concession stands. On the court, forward DeMarcus Cousins is undoubedtly the center-piece of this Kings team. He is, perhaps, the best center in the NBA. Last season, Cousins averaged career-highs of 26.9 points per game, 11.5 rebounds per game and 1.4 blocks per game. Cousins even added a 3-point shot to his already wide-ranging repertoire. New head coach Dave Joerger should be thrilled to be able to work with an elite talent like Cousins. Also returning are wings Rudy Gay and Ben McLemore who provide shooting and playmaking ability. Center Willie Cauley-Stein showed tremendous promise last season as a rim-running and defensive minded big man. Cauley-Stein dunked practically everything in sight and showed the ability to defend almost any position.
In the offseason, the Kings brought in point guard Ty Lawson and shooting guard Arron Afflalo. Lawson should be a quality backup point guard who will stabilize the second unit while Afflalo will be a quality defender and shooter off the bench. In the draft, Sacramento acquired wing Malachi Richardson, center Georgios Papagiannis and power forward Skal Labissiere. If each of those youngsters develops the way the Kings hope they will, they should be excellent NBA players.
Suites at the Golden 1 Center are some of the finest in the NBA offering an ideal space to entertain clients or friends and family. Boxes at the Golden 1 Center come with customizable catering options, comfortable lounge and stadium-style seating, a private restroom, a wet bar, and HDTVs. Suite tickets will also provide owners with access to VIP clubs inside the stadium and entry to the arena through a private entrance. The Golden 1 Center will also Mana, Jimmy Buffett and Maroon 5 concerts as well.
