Santo Domingo North

Former Manhattan U. standout and Dominican national Luis Flores is reportedly about to be a King.

He's a 6'1 point guard, and would be the fourth one-guard on the roster. He's likely training camp or NBDL fodder, and will surely compete with rookie Ronnie Price for the last roster spot.

He played alongside Francisco Garcia in the recently completed Tournment of the Americas. Flores was the third-best player on the Dominican team (behind Garcia and center Jack Martinez), racking up 21.7 points per 40 minutes, 4.9 boards per 40 and a 1.77 assist-to-turnover ratio over eight games against questionable opponents (Charlie Bell was the "star" of the US team, and Tyus Edney was also prominently involved). He also put up a nice 59.5 true shooting percentage and shot a little better than 91 percent from the line.

I can't imagine four point guards make the squad this fall, and I can't imagine Bibby or Hart an all-expenses-paid season off. So all you, Utah Valley State and Manhattan U. fans - get ready for Ronnie v. Luis - coming this October.

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.
