While speaking to a reporter from Olé, Andres Nocioni raised questions about the direction of Kings and left open the possibility that he would like to be traded this summer if the situation did not improve.
"The concern about this is about what the people who are going to support an arena and support the team think about me," Nocioni said in a phone interview Wednesday night with the Sacramento Bee. "This is my concern. (That) and my teammates. That's it.
"I don't want the people of Sacramento to think I'm the kind of guy who likes to complain, that I don't want to compete, or that I'm here to be here for (two) months and then want (to be traded). If this (team) is going to be competitive in the next couple (of) years … I want to be here."
