Monday is the deadline for rookie-scale extensions. Hield, now 26 years of age, had been frustrated with the pace of his contract talks. In the end, though, it sounds like he just wants to stay with the Kings:
"As a player, you want to have that trust that the franchise has your back and we're just waiting for them to make a move and come to an agreement," Hield said via the Sacramento Bee. "They're talking, but nothing is moving yet. Nothing has moved. I'm ready to make things happen, man. I want to make Sacramento my home. I'm ready to get this s- done. I want to be here and if it doesn't happen, then things can go the other way."
Hield started in all 82 regular season games for the Kings last season, racking up averages of 20.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting from the field (42.7 percent from beyond the arc), 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 31.9 minutes per outing.
The Kings kick off their 2019-20 regular season campaign on Wednesday night with a matchup in Phoenix against the Suns. Tip-off inside the Talking Stick Resort Arena is set for 10:00 p.m. ET.
