Loren Woods to sign with the Kings
 
Quote:

Sacramento Bee - Loren Woods will soon be a member of the Kings, according to his agent.

Jason Levien, who represents the 7-foot-2 free-agent center, said his client and the Kings agreed to contract terms Saturday. Woods, a five-year veteran who has played sparingly throughout his career, is expected to fly to Sacramento on Monday. The deal is expected to be finalized Tuesday.

"Loren is bouncing off the walls, he's so excited," Levien said. "He really feels like this could be a good place for him."

A league source said the deal is for one year, paying Woods between $950,000 and $1 million, while keeping the Kings' payroll below the luxury tax threshold of $65.42 million.

good signing for you guys, I think he can backup Brad Miller very well.

Clay and pigment footsteps....only we can breathe...
 
This was a good signing. It's nice to have atleast another 7-footer on the team besides Brad. Hopefully we can get Chris Wilcox in a sign-and-trade deal...maybe a 3-team trade....

Loren Woods sucks. He won't be much better than Potapenko. Terrible signing. Olowakandi would've been better. Wish we got Chris Wilcox.

trust me, as a raptor fan, Loren woods is as useless as they come. He was our 15th man and we won 27 games. YIKES!!!

The money we signed him to was all we had left of the 5 million dollar MLE. It's not that the Maloofs chose that, it's all the league allows teams over the salary cap to have. Yeah we need another trade IMO.

How long must we hold our hands...?
 
Loren Woods is a big man. The Sacramento Kings have no Big men.

We'll take anything at this point.

Be prepared for Woods to play solid in the first 5 games then disappear all together! He does this every year! It's just so sad to see a 7 ft guy with his potential play soooo soft and uninterested. Even when Mitchell tried to light a fire under him, it had the opposite effect.

well i bet it was hard to be motivated on a toronto team that lost every night

Maybe because Mitchell is a bad coach...and Toronto utterly sucked last year.

oooooooo!!!!

My point exactly! If he can't even make his way off the end of the bench on on one of the worst teams last year than what makes you think he will do anything with your team. But whatever, you guys will find out first hand. The guy is like an old dresser at a garage sale with no handles.

The kings have no choice, they must play him. They have a weak frontline and a lot of the choices the raptors made before drafting Villanueva were Isiah-Thomas inspired type of moves. Like trading for 'Zo, without even asking if he wanted to come and then getting the cold shoulder. lol.
