Last season, the (Sacramento Kings) catchphrase was “NBA 3.0.” This year, the chatter is all about positionless basketball, or not be bound to the traditional lineup of a point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and center.

What the Kings want to do with their version of positionless basketball really isn’t new. Coaches in the past have put their five best players on the floor regardless of position.

The Kings finally have enough player personnel diversity to give it a try and did so in Sunday’s preseason opener, rolling out their three-guard lineups in an exhibition loss to the Toronto Raptors.

The Kings host the Raptors tonight at Sleep Train Arena, and some guards are excited at the possibilities of small ball.
