Trey Lyles is a versatile forward who is poised to make a significant impact for the Sacramento Kings in the 2023-24 season. He has experience playing both power forward and center, and he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability.
Lyles averaged 7.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 2022-23, while shooting 45.8% from the field and 36.1% from three-point range. He was a key role player for the Kings, providing them with much-needed depth and versatility.
In the 2023-24 season, Lyles is expected to play an even bigger role for the Kings. He is likely to be one of the first players off the bench, and he could even start at power forward if Keegan Murray is moved to center.
Lyles’ versatility is one of his biggest strengths. He can play both power forward and center, which gives the Kings a lot of flexibility. He can also stretch the floor with his shooting ability, which forces opponents to defend him out to the three-point line.
Lyles is also a solid rebounder and defender. He is not a lockdown defender, but he can hold his own against most players. He is also a good rebounder for his size, averaging 4.1 rebounds per game in 2022-23.
Lyles is still a bit of a raw player, but he has a lot of potential. He is only 27 years old, and he has already shown that he can be a productive player at the NBA level. With more experience and development, Lyles could become a starter for the Kings or another team in the near future.
Kings’ Trey Lyles: Still out Monday
Trey Lyles is still out with a left hamstring strain and will miss Monday’s game against the Golden State Warriors. Lyles has been out since November 7th, but he is making progress and is expected to return soon.
Lyles’ absence has been a blow for the Kings, who have struggled to find scoring and rebounding from their bench. However, the Kings are hopeful that Lyles will be back in action soon and that he can help them make a push for the playoffs.
