One of the great transfers of the market so far, a market that by the way is very close to ending, was that of Sabonis, who left Indiana for the capital of the state of California, Sacramento.
After confirmation by the Indiana franchise that they were going to opt for a reconstruction period, the son of the legendary Endesa League and NBA player, a two-time All Star, left the franchise that drafted him to start a new project, being the reference of the same, in the Kings. As I was saying, the leaders of Indiana believed that with this project the ceiling of the team was rather low and they have decided to get rid of many of their most proven players, bringing others less but with greater potential.
Within this new project Sabonis did not fit. In this way, the power forward born in the United States but of Lithuanian origin, a proven player in the league and twice an All Star already, comes to a project like Sacramento where they want to compete in the short term and get into the Playoffs with the best possible way. Right now, the Kings are 12th in the West but only two games away are the tenth place that would give them the right to play Play-in.
In addition, Domantas seems to have fallen on his feet within the franchise. In his first game, which was also against a playoff team like the Minnesota Timberwolves, he opted in favor of the Kings with 22 points and 14 rebounds for Sabonis. We will see what is from his new stage in Sacramento but of course he has started in the best possible way.
