Sacramento, which is on a winning streak, is actively stepping up to reinforce its power.
According to ‘Eurohooks’, a media dealing with European basketball news, the Sacramento Kings have expressed interest in Sasha Bezenkov (28, 206cm), who is active in Olympiacos.
Bezenkov, a name somewhat unfamiliar to NBA fans, is a 206cm tall forward born in 1995 in Cyprus. Having only played for Olympiacos since his professional debut, Bezenkov is considered one of the best forwards in Europe. Bezen Cope has scored in double digits every season of his career, and this season is showing his skills in full bloom메이저놀이터, averaging 18.5 points and 7.4 rebounds in the Euroleague.
This season Bezenkov is considered one of the best players in the Euroleague. Bezenkov is showing great performance to the point of being mentioned as the Euroleague MVP along with Mike James (AS Monaco), Janan Moussa (Real Madrid), Kevin Punter (Partizan Belgrade) and Vasilye Michić (Anadolu Efes).
Sacramento is aiming for such Bezenkov. Sacramento reportedly sent coach Jay Triano to Europe to observe Bezenkov. Sacramento’s interest in Bezencoff seems serious.
Sacramento is a club with a deep relationship with players from Europe since ancient times. It is a club where big players such as Vlady Divac and Peja Stojakovic, who also served as club management, were active. And now there is a great player called Domantis Sabonis.
The reason Sacramento can recruit Bezenkov is because Bezenkov’s rights are in Sacramento. Bezenkov was selected by the Brooklyn Nets with the 57th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He received an NBA nomination, but Bezen Cope stayed in Europe and had the rights to Brooklyn if Bezen Cope came to the NBA. This right went to the Cleveland Cavaliers when James Harden was traded, and was traded for a second-round pick and moved to Sacramento.
Bezenkov is the type of player Sacramento needs. A tall forward and a good 3-point shooter, Bezenkov will play as a stretch big man if he comes to the NBA. Sacramento has 2022 NBA draft fourth overall pick Keegan Murray and veteran Harrison Barnes playing well, but a backup forward is missing. If Bezen Cope comes, he is expected to be able to solve Sacramento’s troubles.
