OAKLAND -- Let's take a look down the roster after the Kings' 95-86 loss to the Warriors on Sunday night in an exhibition game at Oracle Arena:Tyreke Evans: How should we put this? Evans didn't look that into it, picking up three fouls in the game's first four minutes. He wound up playing 21 minutes, but had just nine points and five turnovers.Francisco Garcia: Garcia was one of the best Kings on the floor - 14 points on 4-for-7 from the field to go along with nine rebounds and four assists.Antoine Wright: He started at small forward, but didn't do much with his 21 minutes. Wright went 2-for-7 from the field and didn't grab a rebound or hand out an assist.Jason Thompson: Call it a nondescript night for Thompson: nine points on 3-for-12 shooting in 34 minutes. Early in the fourth quarter, Thompson appeared to tweak his left ankle but stayed in the game.DeMarcus Cousins: He's a handful, no doubt about it. Big, skilled and athletic, Cousins is going to be a factor at times - even as a rookie. Cousins had 17 points and 11 rebounds but fouled out in 25 minutes.Pooh Jeter: He didn't make many shots, but Jeter seems to have the running-the-point thing down pretty good. He's got a good chance to be Beno Udrih's backup.Luther Head: He gave the Kings a lift off the bench, and will likely play that role this season. Head finished with 13 points in 25 minutes.Darnell Jackson: If the Kings keep 15 players, Jackson might have a chance to stick. He had six points and seven rebounds in 20 minutes.Omri Casspi: He made up for his poor shooting night - 2-for-8 - by grabbing six rebounds and handing out four assists.Donte Greene: He played sparingly (15 minutes) and went scoreless.Connor Atchley: Atchley played the final minute of the game and missed his only shot.Joe Crawford: Did not play because of coach's decision.Marcus Landry: Did not play because of coach's decision.Carl Landry: Did not play because of an eye injury.Samuel Dalembert: Did not play because of a left adductor strain.Hassan Whiteside: Did not play because of a left patellar strain.Beno Udrih: did not play because of a sprained right shoulder.
