Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro said he loves change. When he looks at the depth charts on his office wall, he’s reminded how much change has taken place for the Kings through 19 games.

“I was staring at them looking at the team,” he said. “I’m just looking at black and white on the wall, but it looks so different from the first day. This is the NBA, so I’m never shocked by movement and action, but I’m excited by it.”

D’Alessandro, in his first year with the Kings, already has been involved in a lot of player movement. Monday, the NBA announced the Kings had completed a trade that brought Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to Sacramento from the Toronto Raptors for John Salmons, Greivis Vasquez, Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson.

The newest Kings watched Monday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks from a suite at Sleep Train Arena, and short-handed Sacramento blew out the Dallas Mavericks 112-97.

Sacramento had 10 players available because the newest Kings cannot play until the seven players in the deal pass physicals. The Kings hope to have their new players available Wednesday when they host the Utah Jazz.
Sacramento (6-13) did fine without the new additions against Dallas (13-9).

Derrick Williams scored a career-high 31 points, DeMarcus Cousins had 32 points and 19 rebounds, and Isaiah Thomas added 24 points and a career-high 12 assists as the Kings won back-to-back games for the second time this season.

The depth chart on D’Alessandro’s wall could change more. Only six players from last season’s roster remain, and two of the players added this summer – Vasquez and Luc Mbah a Moute – have been dealt already.

D’Alessandro said his phone line is always open for a team that wants to talk about a deal.
