I love following our local product Kevin Huerter and watching every game he plays in.  He has been a major focal point in the Sacramento Kings offense so far this season.  Even on nights where he doesn't shoot it well, he has the right intangibles and basketball IQ to always make the right play and find himself in the right situation at the right time.  Red velvet is loved by the Kings community, just like he was when he was with the Atlanta Hawks.  Here is my quick take as seen in the Times Union:
Kevin Huerter makes a big contribution to his new team the Sacramento Kings even when he doesn't make shots, and that's what separates him from the rest. Huerter always defends and rebounds at a high level, and along with his high basketball IQ it makes it impossible to take him out of the starting lineup. Huerter dropped 26 points on the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night which snapped a mini shooting slump for the Shenendehowa grad. Huerter is one of the best players on the Kings this season, and it's not always because of how many points he's scored.
