SACRAMENTO: LAST SEASON: 39-43, finished ninth in Western Conference.
COACH: Luke Walton (first season with Kings, fourth season overall, 98-148).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G De'Aaron Fox (17.3 ppg), G Buddy Hield (20.7), F Harrison Barnes (14.3), F Marvin Bagley III (14.9), C Dewayne Dedmon (10.8).
KEY LOSSES: C Willie Cauley-Stein, F Corey Brewer.
KEY ADDITIONS: Dedmon, F Trevor Ariza, G Cory Joseph, F Richaun Holmes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Kings are building around emerging stars Fox and Bagley. Fox took a major step in his second season to become one of the most complete point guards in the NBA. His speed fuels Sacramento's up-tempo attack and Walton hopes to get improved defense and 3-point shooting this season out of Fox to make him a more complete player. Bagley started only a handful of games as a rookie but took big strides in the second half when he showed the ability to be a top scorer. He increased his scoring average more than five points per game after the All-Star break to 18.5 and the Kings hope be builds on that this season.
OUTLOOK: The Kings extended the longest active playoff drought in the NBA last season when they missed the postseason for the 13th straight season. But they won their most games of any season during that stretch and finished ninth in the conference. The players view getting into the playoffs as a benchmark for a successful season but that will be hard in a deep Western Conference that only got stronger with moves this offseason.
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 36-46, finished 11th in Western Conference.
COACH: Ryan Saunders (second season, 17-25 as interim coach last season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (12.1 ppg), G Andrew Wiggins (18.1), F Jake Layman (7.6), F Robert Covington (14.5), C Karl-Anthony Towns (24.4).
KEY LOSSES: G Derrick Rose, G Tyus Jones, F Taj Gibson, F Dario Saric, F Anthony Tolliver, G Jerryd Bayless, F Luol Deng.
KEY ADDITIONS: Layman, G Jarrett Culver, G Shabazz Napier, G/F Treveon Graham, F Noah Vonleh, F Jordan Bell, G Jaylen Nowell, C Naz Reid.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Towns is as versatile of a big man as there is in the league, but he can't carry the scoring load alone so the pressure will be on Wiggins to take a step forward under Saunders in the second year of his max contract extension carrying a $27 million salary cap hit. Having a healthy Covington, the team's best defender who arrived in the Jimmy Butler trade from the Sixers last season but missed the last 45 games because of a bone bruise on his knee, will be a critical factor. Culver, the sixth overall pick in the draft out of NCAA runner up Texas Tech, ought to provide more of that valuable perimeter defense along with Josh Okogie off the bench. Either of them could crack the starting lineup at some point, too.
OUTLOOK: The Timberwolves have started fresh, yet again, with Saunders, the youngest coach in the league, beneath an overhauled front office headed by new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas. With Towns and Wiggins, they have a pair of under-25 standouts locked in, and a quiet offseason relative to the rest of the NBA yielded some useful role players in Layman, Vonleh, Bell, Napier and Graham. The first steps are to establish themselves as a far more consistent and efficient team on defense and shooting from the outside. With the Western Conference even more loaded than before, though, it will be tough to measure progress in the standings. Increasing their win total will be a tall order.
Struggling Kings, Timberwolves look for positives

Two teams that found positives despite long losing streaks look for more of the same Monday night when the Sacramento Kings visit the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Kings coach Luke Walton shook things up with a news-making lineup change Saturday in Chicago, and the move helped produce a 98-81 win that ended a six-game skid.

The move: Bringing leading scorer Buddy Hield off the bench.

"As a competitor, you've got to look at it because you want to figure out what's the reason of that," Hield admitted to reporters before responding well, contributing 21 points and eight rebounds to the win in 23 minutes. "You never get a straight cut-clear answer, but as a player, as a professional, you've got to go out there, lock in, and whatever the coach wants you to do, you've got to go do it."

For one day, anyway, Walton liked what he saw.

"We don't win that game tonight without Buddy," he assured the media afterward.

Hield had 17 points when Sacramento last saw the Timberwolves on Dec. 26, a contest that had to qualify as a disaster for the host Kings.

In a game that Minnesota wound up winning 105-104 in double overtime, the Kings lost De'Aaron Fox in the second minute to back spasms, then saw Marvin Bagley III suffer a sprained left foot later on.

Bagley still isn't over the injury. He missed the following eight games, then returned to play four before aggravating the problem and sitting out the past two. He is unlikely to play in the finale of Sacramento's five-game trip Monday.

The Timberwolves prevailed in the earlier meeting despite going without Karl-Anthony Towns, who was nursing a sprained left knee.

He has returned with a vengeance, averaging 29.0 points in six games, including going for 37, 30 and 40 in his past three.

The Timberwolves have lost all six -- and three more before that -- and find themselves searching for more production from their supporting cast for Towns and guard Andrew Wiggins.

"This team is so used to (Towns) and Wigs doing all the work that when it doesn't happen, we just stand around,'' Shabazz Napier observed to reporters last week. "That's how it is. We just gotta find ways to help them guys out. We all, the role players, have to figure out: How do we help them out better?''

Napier figured it out for himself in Saturday's 113-104 home loss to Oklahoma City, recording a first-ever triple-double with 10 points and career-highs in rebounds with 10 and assists with 13.

It wasn't enough to prevent a sixth straight home loss.

The Timberwolves had lost 11 straight before they won at Sacramento, without Towns, last month.
