Sacramento has a crowded backcourt and added to the confusion by selecting Davion Mitchell with the No. 9 pick. Mitchell will provide immediate defense and shooting, something the Kings urgently require. However, with Buddy Hield, De’Aaron Fox, and Tyrese Haliburton already earning significant playing time, it’s difficult to imagine a scenario in which all three can coexist. There have been rumors about Buddy Hield being traded, but nothing has come to fruition. The Kings must also determine what they will do with their frontcourt. If things remain the same, Sacramento’s starting lineup will consist of Buddy Hield, De’Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes, Marvin Bagley Jr., and Richaun Holmes. If Hield is sent, the starting lineup will most likely be Fox, Haliburton, Barnes, Bagley Jr., and Holmes. However, don’t be surprised if Davion Mitchell earns a spot in the starting lineup.

Sacramento Kings Starting Lineup Analysis
De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes, Nemanja Bjelica, and Richaun Holmes are the starters for the Sacramento Kings. Holmes has taken over as the starter now that Marvin Bagley is out for the season. The customary backcourt tandem has been Fox and Hield.
Harrison Barnes, Nemanja Bjelica, Buddy Hield, Richaun Holes, and Cory Joseph have started 20 games for Sacramento. As a result of Fox missing roughly 20 games due to injury, Joseph was thrust into the starting lineup.
De’Aaron Fox has made 43 starts this season, up from 81 last year and 60 the year before. Fox missed around 20 games due to injuries, and the shorter season will hurt his total number of starts.
De’Aaron Fox leads the Sacramento Kings’ starting five in scoring. He has a 20.4 point per game average. Fox doesn’t take many three-pointers and instead prefers to score at the rim or from inside the three-point line.
Harrison Barnes has been the Sacramento Kings’ poorest starter, since he doesn’t provide anything on offense or defense. Barnes has spent the last few seasons bouncing around the league, picking up minutes but always in a supporting role.
