Vasquez says he's almost 100 percent for training camp

The Kings wrapped up Media Day in the last hour and are preparing to fly to Santa Barbara for training camp, which opens tomorrow at UC Santa Barbara.

There were a lot of laughs. DeMarcus Cousins jokingly begged John Salmons for a hug because he hadn't seen him all summer.

Travis Outlaw was "dunked" on by Ben McLemore (see video below) with the help of Patrick Patterson.

And there was a bit of news on the health of new point guard Greivis Vasquez, who had surgery to clean up loose particles in his right ankle in the offseason.

"I'm 85-90 percent ready," Vasquez said. "I'm going to go through camp for sure, I'm going to do everything we have to do but I'm probably going to play limited minutes through the first coupile of games because I want to be playing in April. I don't want to overload my ankle right now and not be able to play later on. Coach Malone is very aware of that."

Tomorrow's practice will begin the debate over who should be the starting point guard - Vasquez or returning starter Isaiah Thomas.

Other position battles to monitor will be who starts at power forward and how coach Michael Malone looks to use his shooting guards.
