Default No progress with Bonzi Wells talks, yet

"The snail-like negotiations between the Kings and free-agent shooting guard Bonzi Wells went another day with no announcements, as Wells' agent, William Phillips, declined to comment Saturday. But more than two weeks into the free-agency period, numerous player agents have indicated that Wells' unknown status makes it more difficult to seriously discuss other free agents with the Kings. While the Kings still can offer their mid-level exception ($5.2 million), they would prefer to avoid paying the luxury tax." Sacramento Bee | Discuss in Kings Forum

"In essence, as Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie has said, Wells is the top priority, meaning others must wait. Among them is former Kings forward Darius Songaila, a Chicago restricted free agent who is not expected to receive an offer from the Bulls." Sacramento Bee
