SINCE MAY, the Kings have new ownership, a new GM, a new coach and three new starters. Funny what 116 wins in five seasons will lead to. One constant: problem-starter DeMarcus Cousins, who will be in Sac-town through 2018 for a cool $62 million. Another constant? The team's dreadful DRtg -- 29th last season at 111.4 -- which hasn't been below 105 since 2004. The Kings are DOA; long live the Kings.
