Domantas Sabonis is having the best year of his NBA career so far. In addition to his individual success, the Kings are doing well as a team.
With 10 regular season games left to play, Sacramento (43-29) is third in the Western Conference and is very close to clinching a playoff spot.
Kings head coach Mike Brown, who joined the team from the Warriors last summer, sees similarities between Sabonis and Draymond Green.
“He is as close to Draymond Green as any big man I’ve seen in terms of someone who can get it off the glass, bring it up, and make the right play,” Brown said, via Zach Lowe of ESPN.
This season Sabonis is averaging 19 points, 12.5 rebounds and 7.3 assists in 34.8 minutes per game.
