Vasquez Excited to Be Playing for Kings
Pete D’Alessandro’s first conversation with Greivis Vasquez after the Kings’ general manager agreed to trade for him was memorable.
Vasquez, a 6-foot-6 point guard, expressed excitement about joining the Kings.
“He’s a player and a model of what we’re looking for as a team,” D’Alessandro said. “… I’m excited for us. I’m excited for our fans. I’m excited for his teammates.”
Vasquez, acquired in the three-team trade that sent Tyreke Evans to New Orleans, said he can’t wait to move to Sacramento and begin preparing for next season.
In a phone interview Friday, Vasquez was appreciative that D’Alessandro brought him to Sacramento.
“His first trade was for me,” said Vasquez, a 26-year-old Venezuelan. “I’m not going to let him down.”
