Sacramento Kings Notes, Quotes 2009-03-02
--The Kings bought out F Drew Gooden's contract and waived him Sunday. Gooden will be eligible for the playoffs if he signs with another team.

--Kings coach Kenny Natt attended the funeral of the late Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller on Saturday. Natt, who was a Jazz assistant for nine seasons, was among some 2,000 attendees at EnergySolutions Arena who were on hand to honor the man who had owned the team since 1985.

--The Kings forced the Jazz into 17 turnovers, but they countered their own defensive feistiness by giving up 19 turnovers in Saturday night's loss.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "In the fourth quarter, the first couple of possessions we had three to four turnovers without shots. You can't do that. It wasn't like it was forced. It was us not taking care of the ball." -- Kings G Bobby Jackson, on the Kings' fourth-quarter meltdown at Utah on Saturday.
