Juan Dixon, Come on Down!

While we're not sure he's Western Conference starting two-guard material, the Kings are apparently interested in Juan Dixon, who won my second favorite college team a championship in 2002.

The guy is CLUTCH - Bibby in 2002 clutch. Despite improving his offense greatly last year (with a large jump in shooting percentages), he was still barely over replacement-level (1.35 wins over replacement level, according to B-Ref).

I'm not sure how much more than the low level exception (projected around $1.5M this year) he's worth, especially considering we have young shooting guards in Kevin Martin and Francisco Garcia that are taller and more athletic.

Jeez...that guy's shooting percentages are HORRENDOUS, but then so were Bobby Jackson's his first few years in the league. Speaking of Bobby, Dixon is too close in size to Bobby, which means Jackson is likely being shopped around the league.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
