The Sacramento Kings are a professional basketball team based in Sacramento, California, and are part of the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Kings were founded in 1945 and originally played in Rochester, New York, before moving to Cincinnati, Ohio, and then to Kansas City, Missouri, before finally settling in Sacramento in 1985.
The team has experienced both success and struggles throughout its history, including reaching the NBA Finals in 1951 as the Rochester Royals and making the playoffs numerous times since moving to Sacramento, including a stretch of eight consecutive playoff appearances in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
In recent years, the Kings have been rebuilding their roster and working to develop young talent under the leadership of General Manager Monte McNair and Head Coach Luke Walton. Some of their current notable players include De’Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton, and Harrison Barnes.
