Big isn’t always better. Just ask Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger, who’s ready to make wholesale changes after the team’s 4-9 start to the season.

“I’ve seen enough,” Joerger told reporters after the Kings’ 121-115 loss to the LA Clippers on Friday night. “We’re going to play small.”

That means moving DeMarcus Cousins, who had 38 points and 13 rebounds, to center and surrounding him with smaller players. Kosta Koufos, who started at center on Friday, did not play in the second half vs. the Clippers.

Along with sliding Cousins to center, Joerger inserted point guard Darren Collison to play alongside Ty Lawson, and he moved Arron Afflalo to small forward and Rudy Gay to power forward.

The Kings are one of four teams showing the most significant interest in free agent small forward Glenn Robinson III, league sources told The Sacramento Bee. McNair and assistant general manager Wes Wilcox have been forthright and diligent throughout the process in talks between the two sides, sources said.

The most likely suitors at this point appear to be the Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz, sources said. The Kings could be looking for depth on the wing after they declined to match Bogdan Bogdanovic’s offer from the Atlanta Hawks.
