Ty Lawson details the big problem with the Sacramento Kings

Ty Lawson might have only just got his feet in the door at the Sacramento Kings, but that isn't stopping the point guard from speaking his mind.

Lawson was building a nice reputation for himself with the Denver Nuggets before the Houston Rockets traded for him in the summer of 2015.

Thing went downhill for him from there. Lawson could not adapt to an offence that featured a ball-dominant James Harden and he was eventually waived in March.

He would see the season out with the Indiana Pacers before agreeing a deal with the Kings in the summer.

Lawson is now averaging 5.4 points, 5 assists and 2.9 rebounds as he looks to rebuild himself, but the 29-year-old has a problem with how the Kings are preparing for games.

"Shootarounds, we don’t take them serious," Lawson stated. "Nobody takes them serious. So, we do the same thing, even five-on-oh. Our pace is the way we play in the game. So, if you want to change that, we’ve got to change it with ourselves. It’s got to be important to you."

The Kings have a record of 4-8 so far and Lawson is in a similar situation to Houston in the sense that everything offensively goes through their franchise player, DeMarcus Cousins.

If the Kings' effort and focus are the problem like Lawson suggests, that is a worrying revelation.
