Kings' failures lead to another long offseason

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Even in a year during which the NBA expanded the postseason and added a pair of play-in games, the Sacramento Kings weren't good enough to get in.

The Kings have now failed to make the playoffs for 15 consecutive seasons, tying the league's mark for futility previously set by the Los Angeles Clippers.

Hailed as a hero in Sacramento when he purchased the team in 2013 and saved it from a possible move to Seattle, Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is now once again facing another long offseason with some tough questions to answer. The future of coach Luke Walton is one. How to get an underachieving roster to play better is another.
